Last year, we heard that CW DC TV producer Greg Berlanti was developing a Booster Gold movie that he might direct. Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, The Flash) is writing the screenplay for the solo film, but ever since last year, we haven’t had much news on the project. However, it appears that a certain WWE wrestler is game to play Booster.
In a recent interview with Uproxx, Michael Gregory Mizanin, better known as The Miz, talked about how he has always wanted to play a comic book character. At first, he was always interested in playing Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool.
“My dream project? I mean, I think anyone’s dream project right now is how amazing the Marvel/DC comic book era is really coming together and really blowing up the scene. Anytime you have a movie, it’s breaking records, it’s doing great things, so obviously I’d want a Marvel character.
Obviously, Deadpool is already taken and Ryan Reynolds did an absolutely fantastic job. That was always my dream role ever since I saw the video game seven years ago, I was like “Oh my god, I want to play this guy!” But, Ryan Reynolds took it and knocked it out of the park and did an absolutely incredible job, so I can’t fault him at all. But I think anyone would want to do Marvel or DC, maybe WWE can combine with them and do something, but you never know.”
With Reynolds already playing Deadpool, who else would The Miz be interested in playing? When asked, he brought up that he has always wanted to play Booster Gold.
“Yeah, I mean a lot of the main ones are kind of taken. I’ve always wanted to play Booster Gold.”
Greg Berlanti’s Booster Gold currently doesn’t have a set release date.

5 Batgirl Stories That Should Shape Joss Whedon’s Film
Well, now that we all know Batgirl will be getting her own movie, directed by Joss Whedon no less, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of film it will be. Yeah, we had a Batgirl in the terrible Batman and Robin movie, but she wasn’t even Barbara Gordon. Gordon is so clearly the most iconic Batgirl it’s ridiculous they thought to make up some other character for the movie.
Don’t worry though, loyal Batgirl fans. It’s already been confirmed Barbara will star in the movie. While there is always room for Whedon to develop his own stories for the character, it’s more likely he will draw from a few different comics to give audiences a well-rounded introduction to the character.
