“As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds, it’d be a separate thing.” was the word Greg Berlanti gave on his involvement with the upcoming movie featuring DC’s time-travelling self-promoter.
The creator and producer put the kibosh on Booster Gold occupying the DC Extended Universe along with Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl during an interview with Vulture. Previously, Berlanti was confirmed in having a hand in a live-action Booster Gold film by way of Warner Bros. However, the BG film would be a standalone film, having no connection to the DCEU.
Zack Stentz, co-writer of X-Men: First Class, Thor, Power Rangers, and The Flash episodes ‘Monster’ and ‘The Runaway Dinosaur’, created the script for the feature film, hinted at being a ‘buddy cop superhero movie’ starring Booster Gold and Blue Beetle, whose friendship in DC Comics lore has gone down as core material in their respective canons.
Created in 1986 by Dan Jurgens and featured in his own series, Booster Gold’s real name is Michael Jon Carter, a failed football player from 25th Century Gotham City. After Carter travels back in time to the present day DC Universe, he makes use of his futuristic technology to become a hero, at first eschewing traditional heroic notions of justice and nobility and instead signing endorsement deals and shamelessly self-promoting.
