James Gunn Discredits Newest Speculation Surrounding Upcoming ‘Booster Gold’ DCU Series

DCU Secures Booster Gold Lead After Show Receives Major Production Update

The DCU is bustling with various projects underway, from the animated ‘Creature Commandos’ to the highly anticipated ‘Superman’ slated for a 2025 release, and the recently updated release date for ‘Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.’

Among these, the upcoming ‘Booster Gold’ TV show, centered around the titular hero, often flies under the radar.

A recent production listing indicated that ‘Booster Gold’ was set to begin filming on July 8th. James Gunn and Peter Safran were listed as producers, and John Papsidera as casting director. However, this raised eyebrows considering this year was earmarked for ‘Superman,’ ‘Waller,’ and ‘Peacemaker’ season 2. James Gunn himself addressed the speculation on his Threads account, confirming that ‘Booster Gold’ is indeed in development but production is not imminent.

It’s logical to assume that if production were truly imminent, we’d already be inundated with leaks and rumors about casting, costumes, and the overall plot of the show.

Recalling the history of ‘Booster Gold’ production, it’s evident that it’s been a lengthy journey. Back in November 2011, Syfy ordered a television series based on Booster Gold, with Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg at the helm. Despite Kreisberg submitting a script in June 2013, the project never came to fruition. Then, on January 31, 2023, James Gunn announced the first part of Chapter One: Gods and Monsters, which included ‘Booster Gold’ among the projects. And that’s about all the concrete information we have about the show.
