Booster Gold Is Getting A Series As Part Of The DC Universe Slate

This has, in many ways, been a very long time coming. For one because “Booster Gold” #1 was published back in February 1986, as created by Dan Jurgens. But also because Warner Bros. has had designs on bringing the character to the screen for quite some time. Granted, Donald Faison did play a version of the hero in the final season of “Legends of Tomorrow,” but that was a brief run. The studio had larger plans in mind at various points.

Syfy ordered a “Booster Gold” TV series way back in 2011 but nothing ever came of it. Meanwhile, various writers were attached to a movie centered on the hero, including Arrowverse architect and mega-producer Greg Berlanti, whose version would have been a “separate thing” from the so-called Snyderverse. Again, nothing ever materialized, no doubt due to the fact that Warner Bros. kind of lost its direction with DC a little bit after the “Justice League” debacle in 2017.

But now, with Gunn and Safran at the helm, there are steady hands guiding the ship in a bold new direction. Under their stewardship, it seems this long-beloved hero will finally get the chance to take the spotlight. We’ll be sure to bring you further details on the show as soon as they come our way. Stay tuned.
