Greg Berlanti, the producer who has already given us superhero hits like Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl is ready to take his talents once again to the big screen. Although his last superhero film Green Lantern was a critical and commercial dud, he’s gotten enough street cred to give it another try. Berlanti is going to develop a film based on the Booster Gold character from DC comics. Booster Gold although has no superpowers, wears a special suit that gives him superhuman abilities as well as other equipment from the future. The film is currently in development with Warner Bros and will have Zack Stentz attached as the screenwriter and Berlanti as the director. With such an obscure character that only hardcore fans know, many are wondering how this character will fit into the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Could Booster get involved with the Justice League somewhere down the line?
Turns out it not so much the case. Berlanti confirms that Booster Gold, although a DC Comics property, will not be affiliated by any of the recent DC Comics films and exist completely on its own.
“As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. “It’d be a separate thing.”
This is a little bit of a bummer. The one great thing Warner Bros has when compared to Marvel is the rights to all their characters are under one roof. While Booster Gold may not be a household name, he existing in this shared universe could benefit the character greatly. After all, not many knew who the Guardians of the Galaxy were until they had a film within the Marvel universe and now they are one of the biggest names in the comics. But hey, maybe the film can exist on its own without the support of the heavy hitters and sometime down the line they may decide to incorporate Booster Gold into the DCEU eventually.
