Booster Gold Film Writer Provides Update on Project

Booster Gold

Although producer Greg Berlanti said last year the Booster Gold movie was still in development, there's been little progress in terms of getting the project into theaters. X-Men: First Class writer Zack Stentz, who was hired onto the project three years ago, has now provided an update on the project.

“I do not know what’s going on with it right now, honestly," Stentz told The Fanboy podcast. "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.”

Stentz's comments make clear that, although the project has a script, there's been little movement on it that he knows about. It's unclear when Booster Gold will make his debut, but there are reports he could appear in the Blue Beetle film.

Created by Dan Jurgens for his self-titled series, Booster Gold went on to gain widespread recognition as a member of the Justice League and Justice League International, before going on to appear in Jurgens’ "Death of Superman" storyline. While he doesn’t currently star in a series, the character headlined his own book from 2007-2011, prior to the New 52 reboot. Booster has made one previous live-action appearance, portrayed by actor Eric Martsolf on Smallville. Berlanti revealed in 2016 the Booster Gold film would be seperate from the DC Extended Universe, though it's unclear if that's still the case.
