Rumor in Action

Booster booster Curtiss Schofield was reading comics over the weekend, and he noticed this "tweet" from the great Metropolitan newspaper, Daily Planet, on the first page of Action Comics #1014:

Daily Planet @Daily.planet RUMOR: Verner Bros. Pictures wins bidding war over “Blue & Gold” script.  Short list of directors leaks.  #VernerBros #TrishQ #BoosterGold #Blue Beetle

Who wrote that? Was it Action writer Brian Michael Bendis? You've got some pull with Warner, Bendis. Stop trolling us Blue and Gold fans and use your influence to get that movie made!

Thanks for the spot, Curtiss.

The Future of Moving Pictures

Last weekend, CW president Mark Pedowitz spoke to reporters about his network's plans following the conclusion to Arrow at the end of the 2019-20 season, and he hinted that the replacement show is likely to also take place in the DC Comics-inspired "Arrowverse."

As the Hollywood Reporter reported, Pedowitz said

"There is another property we're looking at for the following season."

As you might expect, that vague tease has sent DC fandom into a bit of a tizzy as everyone developed their own pet theory for what he could have in mind and what they'd like to see. Sites like CinemaBlend.com and CBR have suggested a bunch of possibilities, from Nightwing to the JSA. One name that comes up pretty consistently is, as you might expect, Booster Gold.

Booster seems as good a guess as anything. Arrow executive producer/writer/director Greg Berlanti has tried in the past to get a Booster Gold project off the ground. Last we heard, Booster was still in the works as a movie project at Warner Bros, but who knows?

Maybe this is Booster's opportunity. Maybe it isn't. There are a bunch of deserving DC Comics properties that remain chronically underexposed to mainstream audiences. Who will the lucky winner be? Keep watching the CW to find out.

Summer Movie Season

Revenge Of The Fans plans to release a new Fanboy podcast today, and their guest will be screenwriter Zack Stentz. They asked Stentz about the state of his Booster Gold movie script:

I do not know what's going on with it right now, honestly. And I don’t know if the DC people know what’s going on with it. Their strategy seems to change depending on how […] most recent movie did. But I can tell you that a script has been turned in that the director and producer, Greg Berlanti, has proclaimed himself to be very happy with. And it’s something that's ready to go, but DC and Warner Bros. would need to give the greenlight to it. The ball is in their court.

We've been following the progress of Stentz's script since he took the job back in 2016. I'm glad to hear that his boss, Arrow and Flash producer Greg Berlanti, is happy with it. Maybe one day Warner Bros will be, too.

Bigger Than Gone With the Wind

The first trailer for CW's Batwoman television show was released yesterday. It will soon accompany the network's Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning.

Meanwhile, the DC Universe is almost ready to unveil a (second) Swamp Thing series to go with its Doom Patrol and Titans series. Stargirl is on her way.

It sure seems like there are a ton of live action series based on DC Universe properties out there right now, with more in the pipeline. You can probably see where I'm going with this.

When will it be Booster Gold's turn to star in his own show?

SyFy teased us with an announcement of a Booster Gold project years ago, but that never even went to pilot. Then there was news of a movie produced by the powers that created the "Arrowverse." That hasn't materialized, either (though rumors persist that it isn't "dead"). What's the deal, DC? Are you holding Booster back for the perfect moment?

Watching the march of DC characters getting their own shows before Booster Gold wouldn't be so grating if a live-action Booster Gold project wasn't literally the first thing Booster ever sold us when we first met him 33 years ago in Booster Gold #1.

One of these days, Booster. One of these days.

Booster Gold Movie Goes to Hell

Over at Forbes.com, Mark Hughes sings the praises of Warner Bros DCEU movies, especially the positive influence of the unqualified success of Aquaman. He lists Warner's upcoming DC movie release schedule through at least 2022, highlighted by a bunch of deserving super friends.

However, he also points out a reality that will no doubt be a bit of a downer for Booster Gold fans everywhere.

There were also projects in the works involving Booster Gold and Blue Beetle, Nightwing, Deadshot, Justice League Dark, Cyborg, Lobo, and a few others, but most of those seem to be either on hold, cancelled, or in some stage of development Hell for the moment. I think we might eventually see a couple of them revive and join the list of future DC films, but for now I'm not counting on it (even though I'd love to see all of those projects). Which is fine, since right now there are plenty of DC projects in the works for coming years, more than enough to satisfy fans and audiences. Perhaps instead some of these projects will wind up evolving into serialized series on the new WarnerMedia streaming service.

It's not exactly news that WB isn't actively working on a Booster Gold movie, but it is always a disappointment to be reminded of that fact.
