Booster Gold and Blue Beetle appear to be headed to the big screen, as Tracking Board is reporting Greg Berlanti, the producer behind Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow is set to direct and executive produce the film. The online publication is also reporting that Sarah Schechter will also executive produce, while Julia Spiro will oversee for the studio.

As this news broke, Heroic Hollywood is reporting that Zak Penn is on the short list for screen play duties.

The feeling now is the film will be a buddy cop comedy that departs from the dark tones of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold

Booster Gold is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Dan Jurgens, the character first appeared in Booster Gold #1 (February 1986) and has been a member of the Justice League. The character is initially depicted as a glory-seeking showboat from the future, using knowledge of historical events and futuristic technology to stage high-publicity heroics. Booster develops over the course of his publication history and through personal tragedies to become a true hero weighed down by the reputation he created for himself.

The replacement Blue Beetle created by Charlton Comics, and later published by Americomics and DC Comics, is Ted Kord, a former student of Dan Garrett, a genius-level inventor and a gifted athlete. Kord and Garrett were investigating Kord’s Uncle Jarvis when they learned Jarvis was working to create an army of androids to take over Earth. Garrett changed into Blue Beetle, but was killed in battle. As he died, he passed on to Kord the responsibility of being Blue Beetle, but was unable to pass on the mystical scarab. Without Garret’s superpowers, Kord uses his many inventions to carry on the Blue Beetle name and fight crime.
