Zack Stentz Writing Booster Gold Movie or TV Series


Update: Booster Gold movie confirmed.


It's learned Zack Stentz, known for writing Thor, X-Men: First Class, last night's Kevin Smith-directed episode of The Flash and the upccoming Power Rangers movie, is writing a Booster Gold movie or TV series for DC.

While Stentz doesn't confirm Booster Gold while appearing on Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast, according to BMD, it's for Booster Gold.

Stentz explained he got the gig to write The Flash because he is working on a DC project with EP Greg Berlanti (who is rumored to be directing the Booster Gold movie), and that during some downtime, they offered Stentz an episode of The Flash to write.

"Well, interestingly enough I was working with Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and Sara Schechter, the amazing trio that make that amazing machine [TV] run, and we were working on a different project that I'm not really allowed to talk about right now..."

The camera then switched to Kevin Smith and co-host Marc Bernardin who said they know what it is, with Smith giving it two thumbs up and Bernardin saying "it's awesome."

It's possible Stentz may actually be developing a Booster Gold TV series with Berlanti, as Booster Gold was once supposed to air on SyFy. In addition, Berlanti, Kreisberg and Schechter are all involved with DC TV and not the current movies (at least to date), though Berlanti did write and produce the 2011 Green Lantern movie. It is possible following the poorly received Batman Vs. Superman that WB may have turned to their successful TV creators for help (smart move).

Later on in the podcast also saw Stentz reveal he will be writing more Flash episodes next season and has been elevated to consulting producer on the series.
