New Old Release: YotV Hell Arisen 3 2nd Print

Did you miss out on Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 two weeks ago? You could buy a copy on eBay for $40, or, if you're lucky, you can find a rushed second printing today at your LCS for $3.99.

Sigh. (Seriously, I've been collecting comics for four decades, and I still marvel at how the speculator market works.)

While we're on the topic of speculating, I guess now's as good a time as any to mention that pop culture site wegotthiscovered.com reports... well, I'll let them say it.

Warner Brothers is looking to bring [Ryan] Reynolds back to DC but not as the Green Lantern. Instead, they want him to play Booster Gold.

Ok, sure. I'd buy a ticket to see Reynolds bring Zack Stentz's 2017 still-unproduced Booster Gold: The Movie script to life. But then, I'd buy a ticket to see Rob Schneider play Booster Gold. I'm not a hard sell in the Booster Gold department.

And now that I'm on the topics of actors, I should probably take the opportunity to mention what card -carrying Booster Brigade member Shawn Baston spotted in a youtube video tour of comedian Pete Davidson's apartment given to Netflix. Feast your eyes on this:

No, not the picture of Davidson's grandfather with Judd Apatow. Over there in the corner.

Yep, that's a copy of 1985's first printing of Booster Gold volume 1 #1. You've got good taste, Pete. That issue sells for upwards of $30 on eBay!

Double sigh.

UPDATE 2020-03-18: wegotthiscovered.com now reports that Reynolds has turned down the role. That means I've mentioned them twice in this post, which shows you how much mileage there is in speculating about such things.

UPDATE 2020-03-19: wegotthiscovered.com updates their own reporting to say that since Ryan Reynolds passed, WB now wants Chris Pratt. So, they're determined to poach all the Marvel actors then. I guess next week they'll be after Tom Holland.

The Future of Television Is Maximum HBO

I'm never one to spread rumors, but ever since news broke that Greg Berlanti and Zack Stentz were working on a Booster Gold movie, rumor is about all we've had to talk about.

The skinny from David James of WeGotThisCovered.com is that

"[S]ome upcoming DCEU movies may skip theaters and premiere on HBO Max. The big name we're hearing is that Booster Gold could be the first feature film release for the service."

In case you hadn't already heard, Warner Bros will jump into the greedy proprietary streaming service game in May 2020. The service will stream content from across Warner Bros properties, both pre-existing and newly created. Berlanti has already announced two DC-themed shows.

As a result of that announcement, it seems a safe bet that the days are numbered for Warner Bros' existing DC Universe streaming service. We already know that at least some of its content (specifically Doom Patrol) will be moving to HBO Max. Therefore, if a Booster Gold movie is ever going to happen, it seems logical to assume that will be showing up at HBO Max, too.

Of course, that's all speculation. Like I said: rumors are about all we have to talk about when it comes to Booster Gold: The Movie.

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.

Better Late Than Never

Remember the Booster Gold movie script that Zack Stentz wrote for Greg Berlanti back in 2016? Back in August, I wrote "If I were to venture a guess, I'd say it's not dead yet, just moving really, really slowly." It looks like I'm a good guesser.

Earlier this week, Hollywood screenwriter Zack Stentz tweeted about scripts that he has sold but that have not (as of yet) been produced into movies. Among the list was Booster Gold. That triggered this exchange:

It's still ALIVE! A screenwriter friend told me he asked DC/WB about it a few months back. @DanielRPK 28 Nov 2018

Can we trust that source? According to gvnation.com, "Daniel is well known for breaking several DC scoops," so he has that going for him. But in case that's not strong enough evidence itself, let's go straight to the horse's mouth:

Not as long as it's an active project. @MuseZack 28 Nov 2018

There you go. Booster Gold The Movie is still an "active project" at Warner Bros. Personally, I'm willing to be patient if it means they're going to do our hero right.

Sunset Superman

Last week's announcement about Henry Cavill's departure from future DC Comics movies sent a lot of websites scrambling to re-report what we all thought we knew about Warner Bros' big screen plans.

Some of those sites, like DenOfGeek.com (which ran an updated repost) had Greg Berlanti's Booster Gold on their list, whereas io9.com added our hero as an editorial afterthought, and Movieweb.com ignored Booster altogether.

Of course, it *has* been a long time since we've gotten any real update on the progress of that venture. Last month, screenwriter Zack Stentz seemed to imply it was dead (or at least his involvement in it is). So let's test the mood of Booster Gold fandom on this.

This week's poll question: Are you still expecting Warner Bros to release a live-action Booster Gold movie? Please visit the Boosterrific Polls page to view results for this week's poll.
