Zack Stentz Hints He Has Started Writing The ‘Booster Gold’ Movie

It was confirmed a few weeks ago that Zack Stentz would be the man to pen the eventual Greg Berlanti produced Booster Gold film for WB and DC’s ever-expanding slate of superhero movies, and now earlier today Stentz has taken to Twitter to hint that the process has most likely started.

Check out his tweet below:

He also tweeted this out a few minutes later, more than likely referring to the overly cocky persona of Booster Gold:

This most likely means that the writing process for the Booster Gold film is officially under way. Booster Gold is a time traveling superhero who started out as nothing more than a showboating celebrity from the future who used his knowledge of future events to stage false heroics. Over time, his reputation started to catch up to him as he eventually became a real hero weighed down by his old antics. His first appearance was in 1986 and since then he has gained a buddy relationship with fellow hero Blue Beetle.

The Booster Gold film has been heavily rumored for some time, with official confirmation released earlier this summer from producer Greg Berlanti. It has also recently been reported that Berlanti made claim this film would not take part in the DC Extended Universe, but with a whole DC multiverse out there it’s hard to think the character will not somehow be connected.

Prior to the film announcement, the time traveling pseudo-superhero was rumored for quite some time as a candidate for a potential CW show, which makes sense considering time travel is a major element in both The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. Rip Hunter, Booster Gold’s infamous son, is one of the main characters in Legends, so that aspect would have made sense as well. Some rumors I’ve read online have even theorized that the Booster Gold movie could actually even take place in the Arrowverse, but for now those are just unsubstantiated fan theories.

With a Booster Gold movie, one also has to wonder if Blue Beetle is going to make an appearance and get his own eventual film. Both Booster Gold and Blue Beetle together would make an excellent buddy-comedy, considering they’re always getting into slapstick trouble in the comics. They would be a great option to help balance the darkness of the current DCEU.

Are you excited to eventually see Booster Gold on the silver screen? Make sure to let us know in the comments!

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

    Should be fun. Can’t wait to see the DC fanboys contradict themselves on this one. Booster Gold is going to feel like a MCU movie in all the right ways.

      What on earth are you talking about? What “contradiction”? In case you haven’t noticed, the DCEU will have all sorts of different flavors, unlike your precious Marvel.

        Take it easy Samurai, we already know Carlile es a douche

        What exactly do we notice it from? Because every DCCU movie has been just 50 shades of black filters…

      And before you start your Manchurian Candidate-esque mantra of “Marvel is doing fine”, here are the details of the article:

      Marvel had almost a third more comics on sale in August than DC Comics. 93 comics to DC’s 75.

      Yet DC Comics destroyed Marvel Comics on marketshare through August across the board, and placed 9 titles in the top 10.

      Harley Quinn #1 took the no 1 spot, beating out All-Star Batman #1 and Suicide Squad #1 with more issues of Harley Quinn, Suicide Squad, Batman, Justice League and Supergirl taking up the rest of the top ten.

      It took Amazing Spider-Man #16, kicking off their Dead No More event to get Marvel into the Top Ten. Everything else Marvel published was beaten by four comics starring Harley Quinn – and one by Supergirl.

      Which yes, sounds insane. This is both the power of DC Rebirth, but also the lack of reverberation in the market from the poorly performing Civil War II crossover, Star Wars sales slipping and the Inhumans storylines having very little traction.

      I don’t think it’s going to be much different for September’s figures. And will take until October before Marvel has a chance to turn the tanker around with the launch of Champions #1, and the sale of hundreds of thousands of copies to Scholastic Book Fairs…

      Just to remind you in April , DC Comics had a dollar share of 25.82% and a sales share of 25.13%.

      In May, that rose slightly to 26.45% and sales share of 26.34%.

      In June, that jumped to 29.93% and 31.69%.

      July, that was 35.36% and 40.96%

      Well, in August, DC Comics owns 39.27% and 44.59%. In four months that is a move of almost 20 percentage points, a remarkable change.

      While Marvel Comics, who back in April had a dollar share of 42.98% and sales share of 47.87% have seen that crash and burn to 30.78% and 32.11% a fall of 12 to 15 points.

      However, it’s not all bad news for Marvel as overall sales for August 2016 were up over 40% based on those in August 2015. So, even though their marketshare fell lower and faster than any time since Image Comics launched, their sales will still be pretty good.

      Indeed Diamond Comic Distributors reports they topped ten million non-promotional comic books shipped during the month for the first time in nearly twenty years, with comic shops purchasing 10.26 million comic books in August. That proviso excludes Free Comic Book Day titles and the like.

      July’s overall direct market comics sales were pretty good, in August they were up 14.13% in dollars spent. Whtaat this all means is that, despite the year’s massive drop in sales at the beginning of 2016, the past few months have made up for it. And, as it stands, 2016 is currently ahead of 2015 at this stage in the year, by 2.71% in dollars.

      Hopefully this might mean the other publishers aren’t suffering as much from the Big Two Wars. Image Comics’ best selling title in August wasThe Walking Dead #157 at #13. IDW Publishing’s TMNT Universe #1 was theirs #85. And Dark Horse’s Briggs Land #1 was at #127.

    Can’t say I’m all that excited about this. BG has never been on my list of face characters, and the fact that it’s not (at least, at this moment) set in the DCEU makes it all the less appealing. But we’ll see.

  • Keiran S-C

    Sam Claflin! i think he would make a perfect booster gold

    • Maximillian Pegasus

      Yeah, he looks the part, but if Armie Hammer isn’t going to be cast as Shazam, then i want him as Booster Gold.

  • razorstar90

    Keep it out of the The DCEU and it might have a chance to be good.
