An interesting rumor is being reported today. According to The Tracking Board, Warner Bros. is developing a feature film centering around the popular comic book duo of Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle! Also, that the one leading the project is none other than Greg Berlanti of “Arrow” and “Flash” fame! It is said he will be directing and executive producing.
According to the report, this will be a departure from the current slate of DC films which are expected to be dark and serious, the Booster Gold/Blue Beetle film will be more of a “buddy cop” like comedy. The only question remains, will it be Ted Kord or Jamie Reyes? I know the report says Kord, but it looks like initially they said it was Reyes. This could make some what a difference as the original duo have had their fair share of shenanigans in the comics, it would be nice to see a little comic relief from the DC side of the Hollywood super hero movies. How the dynamic of the Reyes’ version of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold together would be handled might be a little different from what we expect.
To go along with this report, Heroic Hollywood is saying that Marvel film writer Zak Penn is being eyed by Warner Bros. to write the screenplay with Berlanti. This is all pretty interesting and I do hope it happens, but at this point, it will be a few years before it sees a release on the big screen with the WB already scheduled movies through 2020.
