New DC Movie To Feature Booster Gold and Blue Beetle
Booster Gold and Blue Beetle, two DC Comics superheros that have long been rumored to appear in either an upcoming film or TV show, are now being groomed for a team-up feature from Warner Bros. Sources exclusive to The Tracking Board can now confirm that Greg Berlanti, the force behind the successful DC comics TV series Arrow and The Flash, will be heavily involved with this one, set to direct and executive produce. Sarah Schechter will also executive produce, while Julia Spiro will oversee for the studio.
In a massively different approach from Warner’s current slate, the film will team the two heroes together in what’s being pitched as a superhero buddy cop movie. Comedy is the emphasis here, which is a stark contrast to the other titles in DC’s Cinematic Universe, breaking the mold of the uber serious and grounded Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
This comes on the heels of reports indicating that actor Nathan Fillion wanted to play Booster Gold in an upcoming movie. “I think I could take a pretty good crack at Booster Gold,” Fillion said to fan applause. “That’s kind of my niche — show-offy, vain. I think I could handle that — not too bright.”
No word yet on if the “Firefly” star will get his wish.
