CONFIRMED: ‘Booster Gold/Blue Beetle’ Movie Gets A Scribe

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold

The rumored Booster Gold and Blue Beetle film could now have a screenwriter.

In an interview with Kevin Smith on Smith’s YouTube show ‘Fatman on Batman’, Zack Stentz, screenwriter of Thor, X-Men First Class and the most recent episode of The Flash, revealed he was working on a secret project with Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter. This secret project is likely the Booster Gold and Blue Beetle movie rumored to be in development with Greg Berlanti.

Due to Berlanti’s child being born the project was momentarily put on hold, allowing for Stentz to write the Kevin Smith directed episode of The Flash entitled “The Runaway Dinosaur”. In the video embeded below, Stentz reveals the project is a Warner Bros. film project based on a DC Comics property, provided further evidence to support it being the Booster Gold and Blue Beetle film.

The talk of Stentz’s upcoming secret project begins at the 5:01 mark of the video.

The whole team seems to be big fans of Booster Gold and DC superheroes in general, with Kreisberg having tried to bring a Booster Gold show to Syfy in 2013. And Berlanti, Kreisberg and Schechter are all producers on Arrow, Flash and Supergirl, the three main DC superhero shows currently on air.

Hopefully based on the team’s projects on television, the Booster Gold and Blue Beetle film will bring levity to the currently grim DC universe that Zack Snyder is building. We will likely hear an official announcement soon, and the film could possibly take one of the two untitled DC film release slots.

The next DC film Suicide Squad is in theaters August 5, 2016. It stars Viola Davis as Amanda Waller,Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, and Jared Leto as the Joker.

    Jumping to conclusions, no?

    • xxjinzaxx

      It’s what scoopers do. Speculate speculation into the ground.

    • gooched

      Educated conclusion.

      • Chris Johnson

        Why should they scrap the DCEU? Although some fans were disappointed by what has been seen so far, they have in fact made quite a bit of money. Not only that, the 2 films you are referring to are the vision of a singular director. Once we see what the other directors have to offer, we’ll have a much better picture to look at.

        So, for me, your conclusion is not educated at all.

          They shouldn’t. The guy is just dumb and married to the idea of TV shows and cartoons. Some people think in binary; one or the other, never considering you can do things in multiple ways.

  • gooched

    Just scrap the DCEU, and continue on from the tvverse, put all your resources into putting shows on every one of the networks you can, even netflix and hbo, and just make a huge tv universe. Last nights Flash was pure comic book joygasm, more than anything else this year superhero wise.

      F#ck all that. Terrible ideas.

      This sounds completely retarded.

    A rumoured writer for a rumoured movie, with the headline stating it as fact. Well done.
