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.

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.

Are you sitting down?
The Tracking Board has exclusively announced that Warner Brothers is working to make a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle movie a reality.
Booster Gold and Blue Beetle, two DC Comics superheros that have long been rumored to appear in either an upcoming film or TV show, are now being groomed for a team-up feature from Warner Bros. Sources exclusive to The Tracking Board can now confirm that Greg Berlanti, the force behind the successful DC comics TV seriesArrow and The Flash, will be heavily involved with this one, set to direct and executive produce. Sarah Schechter will also executive produce, while Julia Spiro will oversee for the studio.
Adding to the news, Heroic Hollywood says that Zak Penn may be writing the screenplay.
The Tracking Board goes on to describe the project:
Based on the DC comics, a man travels from the future with stolen technology in order to become a famous superhero in the present, and teams up with a teenager who has been given superpowers from advanced alien technology called Scarab.
You may recall, Berlanti was the writer/producer behind the never-materialized Booster Gold television show announced by SyFy in 2011. Has Berlanti taken his project to Warner Brothers?
So far as I am aware, neither Warner Brothers nor Berlanti has confirmed these rumors. For what it's worth, I hope they're true.

On Wednesday, Rich Johnston of BleedingCool.com reported that DC Comics is "open for pitches and proposals" for a new Booster Gold title that may be coming in 2016.
Make of this what you will. It has always been my impression that DC is "open for pitches and proposals" for most of their characters most of the time. But I do want a new Booster Gold comic. Here's hoping.

Some of you might have seen this over the weekend at Examiner.com:
According to a Twitter post made by Latino-Review's Umberto Gonzalez on Saturday, he got some news from the the "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" set that Booster Gold and Blue Beetle was spotted on location. The Grip Department confirms this and Craft Services made the report.
Blue and Gold in Batman v. Superman? That sounds great, right? Don't get too excited; the source reported for the article later claimed he was only joking. Think of it as an April Fools' Day prank in mid-October.
Bros, the BLUE BEETLE & BOOSTER GOLD tweet was a joke! Sarcasm yo! lol

(Russ Burlingame expands on how tweeting a false "breaking" news story can be considered a "joke" at ComicBook.com. Burlingame would never do such a thing, would you, Russ?)
Of course, that doesn't mean that Blue and Gold won't be in BvS:DoJ. It just means that we don't have any proof yet. We'll find out for sure when the movie hits theaters in 2016.
