Last fall there was a report that said Warner Bros. was working on a Booster Gold and Blue Beetle team-up movie, and at least part of that has now been confirmed. In an interview with The Hollywoord Reporter, Greg Berlanti (who produces and helped create shows like Arrow and The Flash) confirmed his involvement with a Booster Gold movie at Warner Bros.
If Warner Bros. TV executives asked you to be the Kevin Feige — who is the creative mastermind of Marvel — of the DC Cinematic Universe, what would you say?
It’s never even really come up. Peter [Roth, president of Warner Bros. TV] knows how much I love the characters, and I like being part of this universe in any way that they’ll all allow and are interested in me being a part. That’s the truth. 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. But I don’t see my cup as limited. I actually think some of the stuff we get to do on the TV side is richer, deeper and more like the true comic books in the sense that you’re always able to explore a new thing the next week and the stories grow wider and wider.
Berlanti first dipped his toe into the world of DC Comics when he co-wrote and co-produced Ryan Reynold’s Green Lantern movie. Since then he’s worked on much bigger hits on TV like Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow.
It’s important to note that just because they are working on a Booster Gold script doesn’t mean we’re definitely getting a movie. Warner Bros. works on a lot of scripts that never get made, but this is promising and the first piece of official news we’ve heard about this project.
