You Got Your Chocolate in My Peanut Butter

Last week, we considered the question:

Who is… Gold Beetle in Future State?

Thanks to GamesRadar.com, we now have the beginning of an answer. As we suspected, she very much looks to have something to do with Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. Perhaps their great-great-great-something granddaughter? (The 30th century is very far away.)

THE FLASH #769
written by JEREMY ADAMS

and BRANDON PETERSON
cover by BRANDON PETERSON
card stock variant cover by ZI XU
After an accident pushes Wally West into the time stream, the former Kid Flash lands in the body of his onetime partner, Impulse. Now sprinting through the 30th century side by side with the mysterious (and, yeah, ridiculous) Gold Beetle, Wally must uncover what's causing the destructive explosions that keep propelling him through time and the bodies of other speedsters.

CARD STOCK VARIANT COVER $4.99 US

So now we know that Gold Beetle won't be appearing until *after* Future State runs its two-month course. Unless she gets a cameo appearance at the end of Future State: The Flash #2, which I suppose we'll know when that issue is released on February 2.

Grinding the Rumor Mill

Over the weekend, Rob Snow wrote in to say

There was an intriguing teaser dropped on Bleeding Cool about Future States Gold Beetle.
Any clue?

Nothing concrete, but I like where your head is, Rob.

The teaser Rob mentions was in the article "91 Rumours, Gossip, Teases About DC Comics Future State for 2021." Number 90 on that list is

Who is… Gold Beetle in Future State?

I wish I knew. DC Comics has had Blue Beetles, Red Beetles, and Black Beetles, so there's no reason to think that Gold Beetle has anything to do with Booster Gold. But it might.

At this point, I should point out that there is no evidence in any of DC's promotional material to date that this Gold Beetle even exists (or will exist), much less that it has anything to do with the future of everyone's favorite comedic crime-fighting team. Adjust your hopes for a previously unannounced Booster Gold appearance in any of the next two months' worth of DC comics accordingly.

Booster's next know appearance is on the cover of Infinite Frontier in March. If anyone spots our hero in any of the Future State comics before then, please let us know.

UPDATE 2021-01-15: Mystery solved! Booster booster Shawn Baston notes that Gold Beetle is on the cover of April's Flash #769. More on that later.

Losing Restored History

On October 7, 2019, I wrote (based on news from HollywoodReporter.com):

"DC finally plans to release their comprehensive Rebirth continuity in 2020. That's a mere 9 years after they threw out decades of character development in a bid to boost sales."

Well, guess what DC's plans are for 2021?

"It now appears as though DC's comic book line could be abandoning the idea of a single, shared continuity in favor of a multiverse / metaverse / omniverse model in which each individual comic will have its own story to tell, without much concern for what's going on in other titles across the publishing line."

So says Russ Burlingame at ComicBook.com. This merry-go-round is starting to make me dizzy.

Burlingame's report is based on a post from BleedingCool.com, which qualifies DC's plan thusly:

But what the DC Omniverse will mean is greater creative freedom, less interference by editors (or publishers), and no one saying "you can't use that character, they died in City of Bane/got lost in a Dark Dimension/went evil and currently approaching Gotham, slowly, with all her plants."

Longtime readers of Boosterrific.com know that I consider "continuity" to be a synonym for "character development." If DC fractures their Universe into an Omniverse, instead of having one dynamically developing Booster Gold character with a single continuity threading through many stories, there will be an infinite number of Booster Golds, each with his own continuity of appearances. That doesn't sound very simple to me. Unless they intend for there to be one static Booster Gold character who never learns anything or does anything new. I can't wait to spend money monthly on that.

But this plan would save DC Comics the cost of paying salaries to all those editors. I wonder how much longer until they can get robots to draw the panels?

JJ Abrams to Direct a Flashpoint Film

In the wake of last week's revelation that Rick Famuyiwa was no longer director of Warner Brothers' planned Flash movie, rumors surfaced that JJ Abrams would be taking over the job. And apparently, Abrams wants to add Booster Gold, according to the following quote:

Booster Gold is only being brought in to tell the whole Flashpoint story. The Flash television series did not do the story justice and it needs to be told properly! Greg [Grunberg] will be great as Booster as well. He has the charm and charisma needed for the character.

Before you get excited or outraged, realize that this rumor was started by fakingstarwars.net, a website devoted to faking movie rumors. JJ Abrams will not taking over The Flash, nor will Abram's friend Greg Grunberg be playing Booster Gold anytime soon.

At least so far as anyone knows.

Demand More Gold in Your Entertainment

Late last week, tracking-board.com unleashed the rumor that a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle movie in the works, and DC fans everywhere exploded with pent-up joy.

The weekend brought us no confirmation of this rumor. Warner Brothers, DC, and producer/director Greg Berlanti have all been publicly silent on the subject. That doesn't seem to have dampened fan enthusiasm.

Social media sites have been blanketed by a positive reaction to the news that DC might finally be making a superhero movie that isn't all grim 'n' gritty. So if the rumor wasn't true to begin with, maybe it is now.

Remember that studios make movies to sell them to audiences. If a lighthearted, super hero buddy comedy is what we say we want, they will give it to us.

So keep up the buzz, Booster boosters! Let's get Booster Gold the movie he deserves.
