This week on the show: Booster Gold to SyFy, Punisher goes to jail, and a trio of comic lovers talk comic books.
Show Notes after the Jump!
I don’t really believe this, but thought we should pass it along for your own edification. Andrew Kreisberg, writer of the Fox series Fringe, reportedly has turned in a pilot script based on DC Comics’ Booster Gold character.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the SyFy channel has picked up the rights to Booster Gold and is planning to bring it to the small screen as a live action show.
Nearly twenty years ago, Booster Gold was first on the scene to fight against Doomsday in a fight that culminated with Superman’s death. Today, they’re together again for the first time, but this time there’s no Superman to save the day!
It’s Booster vs. Doomsday in the latest installment of Booster Gold. DC Comics released a sneak peek of the issue that arrives in stores this week.
Booster Gold has the disease Chronal Leprosy. With such a disturbing illness, he has to ask himself some questions: What’s going to happen? Can someone help me? Where, and more importantly, when can I go to get help? Oh, and above all else, what is Chronal Leprosy? Find out after the jump.
The CW has released a series of still images from the upcoming Smallville episode featuring Blue Beetle and Booster Gold.
DC Comics has released a sneak peek of Booster Gold #42 featuring Booster Gold in jail. JAIL!
As the build up to DC Comics’ Flashpoint continues, it’s time to start dropping clues and hints of things to come via Rip Hunter. The company released a sneak peek of Time Masters: Vanishing Point #6 that leads to Booster Gold #44, and that leads to Flashpoint #1.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Eric Martsolf (Days of Our Lives) has been hired to play Booster Gold in an upcoming episode of Smallville titled “Booster”. Joining the hero from the future will be Jaren Brandt Bartlett as Jaime Reyes, the Blue Beetle. Add to this news the rumor that Ted Kord will make an appearance in the episode as well. Geoff Johns, who is writing the episode, says Kord will be played by Sebastian Spence.
It’s really too bad, Warner Bros., DC, and the CW waited until the final two season to start rolling out other DC characters. Had they done this eight years ago, we might already have a Justice League movie in theaters.
