Booster Gold and Blue Beetle Movie Being Developed

With Warner Brothers looking at ways to expand their cinematic roster of DC-based characters, now comes word that Booster Gold and Blue Beetle could be getting their own joint big screen outing.

The Tracking Board is the source of this news, with the outlet reporting that Warners and DC Entertainment are moving forward with what has been pitched as a “superhero buddy cop movie” that will have a slightly comedic slant. Greg Berlanti, best known to genre fans for producing and developing the likes of Arrow, The Flash and CBS' upcoming Supergirl, is believed to be in line to direct the Booster and Beetle team-up.

Additionally, Heroic Hollywood has the scoop that Zak Penn is in talks to pen the screenplay for this film. Penn’s previous credits include the likes of X-Men: The Last Stand, The Incredible Hulk and some draft work on Joss Whedon’s Avengers Assemble.

As for the characters in question, Booster Gold has been a big time fan favourite since he was created by Dan Jurgens back in 1986. Initially living in the 25th century, Michael Jon Carter travels back in time to the present day where he uses his knowledge of future technology to become a cocky, sponsor-adorned, insta-smiling hero.

Where Blue Beetle is concerned, Dan Garrett, Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes have all taken on the moniker. The various versions of the character have all had slight differences, such as Garrett’s use of a mystical scarab or Kord’s high level of intelligence. And as it happens, both Kord and Reyes have teamed up with Booster Gold over the years. Also, both Booster Gold and Blue Beetle have already been seen in live-action, having both previously appeared in Smallville.

As ever, expect more on this as it develops, although some speculation claims that the two heroes could even make a small appearance as soon as Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Part One in 2017.
