Rumor: Booster Gold & Blue Beetle superhero buddy cop movie in the works

Booster Gold Blue Beetle Greg Berlanti Banner

Sources tell The Tracking Board that DC Comics' Booster Gold and Blue Beetle may be heading to the big screen in what is being pitched as a "superhero buddy cop movie," with Arrow and The Flash writer/producer Greg Berlanti set to direct and executive produce.

TB says "comedy is the emphasis here," which will come as good news to those who think the DC Cinematic Universe is too dark and serious compared to the MCU, and the project could be DC's answer to Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and ANT-MAN. The site also says Booster Gold and Blue Beetle "are being planted now to appear" in a future Justice League film. HH later added that they've heard Warner Bros. has set its sights on Zak Penn to write the movie.

While part of me is excited Booster Gold and Blue Beetle might be teaming up in a live-action feature film, I'm not sold on Greg Berlanti directing. But this is strictly just a rumor, so we'll have to wait and see if there's any truth to TB's report. In the meantime, who would you like to see play the duo? Should Warner Bros. and DC give Nathan Fillion a call to see if he's still interested?

The next entry in the DCCU, BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, opens on March 25, 2016, followed by SUICIDE SQUAD on August 5, 2016.

Giffen and DeMatteis need to be involved in this somehow; they wrote Blue & Gold the best.

Sounds like it could work out well. We haven't really gotten a superhero teamup movie (as opposed to a superhero team.)

Would be funny if in the movie Booster Gold (who had his fair share of time travel and dimension hopping adventures) is shown to have passed through some interesting timelines and dimension which includes the Superman Returns universe and the dumb old Justice League TV movie.

wish Fillion was a couple yrs younger...

but I'd still take him now in the role. With the time traveling aspect, you could easily do the story with him already established as a character, older and wiser, instead of another origin story. But we are talking about the studio that has filmed the death of Bruce Wayne's parents how many times now? Plus, Fillion is so youthful and acts immature with charm and smarm very well, which I think could actually really be interesting as his character jumps through time and begins to deal with

The sad reality is that this movie won't happen for so long, Fillion would be 50 before it comes out. It's also kind of picking at a scabbed over wound to have Berlanti directing a DC movie, when they won't give his TV creations (Amell and Gustin) spots in the same universe.

Make it more like a Marvel movie...

Don't force it to be dark and gloomy. These characters like to have fun and don't brood in shadows (Superman doesn't either, but they fucked that up)

I'm not familiar with these two characters but I do hope it will be better than Buddy Cop superhero movie like R.I.P.D.

I would say give it to Fillion since he has actually expressed interest and excitement to do it as of late. He has the look and charisma to pull it off effortlessly and would FINALLY be cast in a comic book film that's not animated or where his character isn't cgi.
