DCU Secures Booster Gold Lead After Show Receives Major Production Update

When Gunn & Safran assumed leadership roles as co-chairmen and co-CEOs of DC Studio, they unveiled plans for a comprehensive revamp of the old DCEU, introducing a multitude of projects spanning live-action films, television series, and animated shows.

However, it appears that this will soon change, as the show has received a significant production update.

Fast forward to January 31, 2023, when James Gunn announced the first part of Chapter One: Gods and Monsters, which included Booster Gold among the projects. This marks the extent of our knowledge about the show.
