 Kreisberg Out at CW

Friday, December 1, 2017

KryptonSite.com reported yesterday that Warner Bros has terminated their association with Andrew Kreisberg following a three week investigation into inappropriate behavior.

Though Kreisberg was most recently credited as Executive Producer on CW television shows The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow, fans of Booster Gold most likely know him as the writer of the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Greatest Story Never Told." Kreisberg was also attached to an attempt to sell a Booster Gold television show to Syfy in 2011. He has long been an avid promoter of our hero.

I had expressed disappointment last year when Greg Berlanti announced that Zack Stentz, not Kreisberg, would be the writer working on the latest attempt to get a Booster Gold movie off the ground. However, given the recent events, perhaps that was for the best. At least Kreisberg's ouster shouldn't harm Berlanti's prospects of getting its Booster Gold movie made.

 What to Make of This?

Friday, August 4, 2017

Discovered this week: the website of Regal Cinemas, a theater chain with almost 600 locations worldwide, now has a page for Booster Gold the movie.

Regal Cinemas

MOVIE INFO & CAST

DIRECTOR: Greg Berlanti
WRITER: Dan Jurgens, Zack Stentz
RUNTIME: 2hr 40m

SYNOPSIS
Booster Gold is a superhero from the 25th century and travelled back to the 20th century to become rich and famous

Given that they haven't even started filming, much less editing, how in the world do they know it's going to be 2 hours and 40 minutes long? (Please, please, Warner Bros., don't let any Booster Gold movie run longer than 120 minutes, tops. If you can't tell your story in two hours, make it a television show!)

I'm pretty sure this isn't official. Presumably, Regal Cinemas is pulling this data from IMDB.com, which has identical details down to the same "sky-seller.com" watermarked pic of Smallville's Eric Martsolf, who, at the age of 46, is unlikely to be playing Booster on the big screen.

There hasn't been much news out of Warner about when, if ever, we'll be seeing that Booster Gold project Berlanti has been working on for the better part of a decade. The studio still has holes in its release schedule, so late 2019 remains a possibility. We'll see.

 All Our Hopes Are Pinned upon You

Monday, June 5, 2017

So maybe you heard about this movie that came out last week? Wonder Woman, I think it's called? People seem to like it.

But seriously folks, I'm sure most of you know by now that Wonder Woman made over $100 million domestically (and significantly more than that internationally) in its opening weekend after being praised by critics and fans alike. Congratulations to DC and Warner Bros. for finally getting one right.

I'm not the only one happy to see Wonder Woman doing so well. Check out these tweets from screenwriter Zack Stentz:

I'm so thrilled for Wonder Woman's success, even beyond the selfish reason of hoping it gives momentum to our bright, optimistic DC movie. -- @MuseZack 2017-06-03

"Bright" and "optimistic" are two of the most important words I want associated with any Booster Gold production! Thank you, Zack.

Wonder Woman's success doesn't guarantee anything (except a sequel for Wonder Woman), but it can't hurt the chance that we'll be seeing Booster Gold: The Movie done right.

Keep your fingers crossed, Booster boosters!

 Booster Gold Movie Still in the Works

Friday, February 3, 2017

If you watched The Flash on Tuesday, you might have recognized its similarity to Booster Gold Volume 1, #18. (Russ Burlingame covered the details for Comicbook.com). In what I'm sure was completely unrelated news, after the episode aired, writer Zack Stentz announced on Twitter that he was leaving the show.

Naturally, this announcement stirred up the show's hardcore fans. Had Stentz been fired by Flash producer Greg Berlanti? Was there trouble behind the scenes?

Stentz headed off any potential gossip in a follow-up tweet.

Everything was totally amicable, I'm still writing Booster Gold for Greg & company, & deeply love the writers, cast, & crew. -- @musezack 1 Feb 2017

Flash fans might be sad to see Stentz go, but Booster Gold fans have to be bouncing with joy knowing that work continues towards the Booster Gold movie.

Godspeed, Zack!

 Year in Review 2016: Number 2

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Coming in second on our year-end hit parade was the Boosterrific.com post on May 13 confirming that the long rumored Booster Gold movie finally had a writer.

Said Greg Berlanti (to the Hollywood Reporter):

I'm attached to a few films [at Warner Bros.] now, and one, Booster Gold, is a DC property. Zack Stentz, who wrote an episode of Flash last year, just got the job, so he's writing the script now. I'd probably direct that, or I would want to.

We haven't heard much since, but that's how the movie business works. We'll keep watching and waiting.

The countdown wraps up on Friday with the most visited post of the year.
