When Big J the Terminator Speaks

Booster booster Koby writes

there hasnt been much booster in comics, this is all we have right now. have you seen this? does this count as booster news? maybe. i miss him. happy pride month?

The "this" in question is this Twitter thread:

Happy Pride everyone!! Here is my only real contribution to the DC Extended Universe and if we're being honest, to culture #TeenTitansGo #boostle #BoosterGold #BlueBeetle -- @space_lt_josh via Twitter.com June 1, 2023

For the record, "Big J" is Teen Titans Go! storyboard artist Joshua Weisbrod, who does have some authority to speak on the matter.

Teen Titans Go! definitely takes place in its own continuity, and it stands to reason that in an infinite DC universe, everyone is in a relationship with everyone else somewhere. So if Weisbrod says Blue and Gold are a romantic couple on Earth-TTG!, I assume they are.

As for whether or not this is "news," well... I mean, yes, obviously, it's news that Weisbrod just said this, but Teen Titans Go! has been Boostling for years. The pics Big J shares are from episodes as far back as 2017. The pic of them hugging in suits is from the season 7 episode "Manor and Mannerism," which aired in August 2021.

Speaking of which, if you look at the "trivia" section of the teen-titans-go.fandom.com page for that episode, you'll see

Married in Earth-1 continuity? Now that certainly is news to me! I didn't even get a wedding invitation.

Thanks, Koby. Here's hoping Booster turns up again sooner than later.

Ruh Roh, Shaggy

As you may have seen on the usual comic news sites like CBR.com, the complete Warner Bros. animated feature film Scooby-Doo! and Krypto, Too!, featuring a crossover between Hanna-Barbara's canine crime-solver and the Justice League, was leaked to the Internet this past weekend.

The leak is an undisputed fact. (I've seen the file. More on that in a minute.) What's not clear to me — or apparently to anyone else — is the motivation behind the leak.

These are other undisputed facts: Warner Bros. cancelled Scoob! Holiday Haunt1 and Scooby Doo! and the Haunted High Rise2 late last year as part of their tax write-down strategy. Last week, they also cancelled a third project, Scooby-Doo! and the Mystery Pups3.

But so far as I can tell, no one officially connected to Scooby-Doo! and Krypto, Too!, either at Warner Bros. or production company Digital eMation, has said anything publicly about whether or not Krypto, Too! has actually been cancelled. That's what CBR and almost every other website reporting on this story has said, but not a single one of those reports provides a single source confirming the cancellation. I think that's weird. (For the record, I also think it's bad journalism, but we seem to be losing that fight on a daily basis.)

Frankly, I can think of a lot of reasons why the movie might have been leaked, especially in light of WB's recent instability. I'm not yet convinced that the movie won't one day be released through official channels. For example, the film has a 2023 copyright date in its credits, and there's still listing on Amazon UK for a September 25, 2023, PAL DVD release.

I'm holding out hope for a public release because, as Booster booster Koby first notified me, Skeets is in the movie! As I said above, I've seen enough to confirm that DC's Number 1 Robot Sidekick appears in the background inside the Hall of Justice Trophy Room, right beside a model of the Blue Beetle's Bug. It's a pretty cool Easter egg. Maybe one day, everyone can enjoy it.

UPDATE 2024: Rob Snow lets me know that the movie is now available on Max, so here's a legal screenshot:
