Earlier this year, it was revealed that DC TV master Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl) was working with Warner Bros. Pictures on a Booster Gold film that would tell the story of the time traveling Michael Jon Carter. Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor) who wrote an episode of The Flash in Season 2 and is now working as an consulting producer on the series, is writing the screenplay for the film which we learned back in May.
It has been pretty quiet on that project since then, until today as Berlanti revealed some very surprising details about Booster Gold when speaking with Vulture. While it was assumed that Booster Gold would be in the DC Extended Universe, it turns out that that isn’t the case at all.
“As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. It’d be a separate thing.”
In the interview, he also revealed that the project came about after Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg’s Booster Gold TV project “never got off the ground” on SyFy, as they got in discussions with DC Films president Geoff Johns. In an earlier interview, Berlanti expressed interest to possibly direct the film too.
“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.”
