There have been quite a few fans out there hoping to see Booster Gold as well as the Blue Beetle make their way into the Arrowverse on the CW. They might not be getting their wish but it sounds like they’ll be getting the next best thing. The Tracking Board is reporting that Greg Berlanti, the man behind “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” is being tapped to direct and executive produce a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle “superhero buddy cop” film.
The film is being described as a comedy and Heroic Hollywood followed that up by reporting that Zak Penn (X2: X-Men United, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers) is in line to write the film. The report from The Tracking Board also mentions that the film will be part of DC’s cinematic universe and that there are plans for both Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle to join the Justice League on the big screen.
Sounds like it could be something special considering the names involved so far. Plus it could be a nice change of tone for DC’s films which are going for a noticeably darker tone when compared to much of the superhero fare that’s currently in the film market.
