As seen recently on Twitter:
Hmm. All of his projects since 2011 are "dead"? Yet Stentz "liked" the reply comment about Booster Gold? What does that mean for his Booster Gold screenplay?
In case you were unaware, Zack Stentz is the writer of the Booster Gold movie script commissioned in 2016 by and delivered in 2017 to Flash producer Greg Berlanti. Berlanti announced as recently as May 2018 that he wants to direct it.
Despite all that good news, Booster Gold: The Movie has never received any official announcement through Warner Bros, the parent company of DC Comics and the studio behind every DC movie to date. And today's tweet from the screenwriter implies that if the script isn't dead, it's at least being rewritten.
So what's the takeaway here?
If I were to venture a guess, I'd say it's not dead yet, just moving really, really slowly. Given that the upcoming DC Universe streaming service is going to need lots of new content to justify the $8/month subscription cost — which is why Berlanti has lately been working on Titans and Stargirl television series — it seems likely that any Berlanti-helmed Booster Gold project still working its way through channels would also have that destination in mind. Because that streaming service doesn't exist yet (beta testing has been announced to start sometime this month), it may be some time before Stentz's Booster Gold script, or any other, makes it into production.
And, of course, if Warner Bros does decide they want to move ahead with a Booster Gold movie for the big screen, The Hollywood Reporter speculates that Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is available, assuming he wants to helm a movie about a celebrity looking for redemption for past misdeeds.
To know for sure if or when we might ever see Stentz's script or any Booster Gold project become a reality, we'd need a Time Sphere. Since that's even less likely than seeing a Booster Gold movie, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what we see.

My television has been bombarded by Teen Titans Go! To the Movies ads for the past two weeks. I didn't pay them too much attention — I try to avoid movie trailers; I think they give too much away — but I could have sworn I kept spotting the Corporate Crusader in the background of some of the big group shots. Try as I might, I couldn't confirm that from the official trailers I found on YouTube.
That is, I couldn't prove it until yesterday. Feast your eyes upon this:
Booster Gold is clearly visible in this screen capture from the trailer compilation posted by Comicbook.com. You'll find this clip at 2:16 and repeated at 3:20. It's a Booster two-fer!
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is in theaters now, so I guess I'll be going to the movies this weekend.

On Thursday, Cartoon Network announced the release of their latest mobile game, Teen Titans GO Figure!
According to their press release:
Teen Titans GO Figure! features nearly 100 exciting figures to battle and level up. Collect fan-favorites like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Black Lightning, Swamp Thing, Shazam and more, each customizable with new paints, abilities and accessories. You’ll meet up with tons of iconic DC characters along the way, including Supergirl, Hawkgirl, Commissioner Gordon, Martian Manhunter, Space Cabbie, Rainbow Raider, Booster Gold, Condiment King and more.
Before you rush out to play, know that DC Comics also released a digital tie-in comic book. The comic's plot actually involves some time travel antics, so naturally Booster Gold has to drop by. His one-panel appearance revisits Rip Hunter's chalkboard from Booster Gold Volume 2.
(Yes, the exclamation point is in a different place in those two products. Why? Go figure.)
Thanks to J for letting me know about the comic.

Booster booster Logan Peterson dropped by my mailbox to deliver this good news.
I spotted Mr. Carter in the opening pages of Titans Special #1. A small cameo, but each appearance is precious. :)
Titans Special #1 by Dan Abnett and "various"
Booster isn't likely to ever join the Titans, but it's nice to know that the Justice League has their eyes on him. There just might be a spot on the team for our hero should some of their other new recruits not work out. (I hear The Demon isn't much of a team player.)
You can find a preview of Titans Special #1 on ScreenRant.com and the book itself now on the shelf of your Local Comic Shop.
Thanks again, Logan.

Believe it or not, Booster Gold's first team adventure didn't take place in his own book or in the pages of Justice League International. No, that honor went to the New Teen Titans, though not with the Titans themselves. Booster was a proud (but brief) member the Teen Titans' rescue squad!
On this day in 1986, Booster appeared in New Teen Titans #29 in response to Magenta's call for help against Brother Blood (who has enslaved the Titans in his bid to overthrow the American government). Also on the team were (clockwise from Booster) Dr. Midnight II, Batman, Magenta, Katma Tui, John Stewart, and Skyman. (Don't recognize most of these people? Don't worry! Three of them will die within a half decade, and a fourth will become a villain.)
This group shot is just a tease for the next issue, in which Superman joins the rescue squad and Booster is relegated to off-panel crowd control. Man, our hero never catches a break! (At least he wasn't killed off!)
There have been 1956 blog entries since January 2010.
