Greg Berlanti Confirms Involvement On ’Booster Gold’ Film

Booster Gold Greg Berlanti

One of the busiest producers in Hollywood right now is the mastermind Greg Berlanti who is running over six shows all at the same time. You have The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow on The CW, Supergirl on CBS as well as Blindspot and The Mysteries of Laura over at NBC. His upcoming comic book show Riverdale, based on Archie Comics, is looking to get a series pick-up on The CW so this is one busy man on the television screen.

Last year it had been reported that Berlanti was working with Warner Bros. Pictures on a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle movie which is starting to become a reality day by day. Recently, The Hollywood Reporter did a big feature on Berlanti as a show-runner and about his career that we do advice you to check out as it’s a phenomenal read.

During the interview, Berlanti was asked about if he would be interested in leading the DC Extended Universe like Kevin Feige does for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to which Berlanti said this, while also confirming that he is in fact involved with a Booster Gold film and that Zack Stentz, who wrote this week’s amazing The Flash episode, is doing the screenplay.

 “Question: 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?

Answer: 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.”

Now, it remains to be seen whether or not Blue Beetle is showing up or if the film is even a Gold/Blue film at all since he referred to it only as a Booster Gold film, but the chances of Blue Beetle being a second main character, are possible.

    I am excited!! I love Booster Gold and Ted Kord’s Beetle!

    Zack Stentz killed it his Flash episode. He certainly knew how to pull on this fanboy’s heartstrings resulting in me crying through almost the entirety of the scenes with Barry and his mother. Great episode to follow up Mother’s Day.

    The Arrow is a horrendous show and the writing for The Flash has gotten weaker and weaker. The stuff they do is ok for CW but I dont have faith in silver screen presentations of the Berlanti world
    The latest flash happened to be quite cheesy almost in the YA/Supergirl territory. It was really bad imo

  • Yes Indeed

    Arrow sucks bad and should end already. I really like The Flash, but it can be super cheezy at times. I would like a Booster Gold movie, bt how does it fit into the twisted universe they let Snyder craft? guess we’ll see.
