Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg has reportedly submitted his draft for the pilot based on DC Comics’ character Booster Gold to Syfy. A "Fringe-esque" Booster Gold series seems like it would have great potential, right?

According to a Canadian movie website SneakPeek.ca, Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg has turned in a draft for the hour long pilot based on DC Comics’ superhero Booster Gold to the Syfy network. I am not 100% sure on the source, so we'll leave this one in the rumor category for now. However, with CBM now putting the rumor out there, we should expect official confirmation or denial from Syfy pretty soon.

Reportedly, fans should be pleased with the pilot if it receives the green light and makes it on to television screens. Hopefully, it learns it's lessons from NBC's failed Wonder Woman attempt.

The series will be a one-hour drama based and will be executive produced by Greg Berlanti ("Brothers & Sisters").



Booster Gold is a fictional character, a DC Comics superhero created by Dan Jurgens. He first appeared in Booster Gold #1 (February 1986) and has been a member of the Justice League, DC Comics' all-star team of heroes. 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 has created for himself.

I only remember this guy from the Death of Superman run. I seem to remember Doomsday smashing his head in a car door. That's all I got...

Wasn't it NBC that failed at Wonder Woman??

Wow booster gold is a great character very interesting too. Basically he was like Johnny storm in the ff movie, in the sense that he was out for money. Also he is from the 25th century. I really suggest you guys pick up 52.

Booster Gold is one of the stupidest characters in the DCU, he's a flying comedy act that they've partnered in the past with Blue Beetle like some Laurel and Hardy duo. His costume is what gives him power since he's from the future but ultimately he's just another stupid looking, overly colourful character that nobody with intelligence in the general public will give a flying frak about enough to warrant wasting money on a pilot for a TV show that's already a certified cancellation!

@TimJude72 You are correct,sir.

You just bleed of postivity Ceejay.

Booster Gold is not my favorite but he is a fun character, but Im not sure how they will base an entire TV series off of him.
I look forward to seeing what come up with.

"However, with CBM now putting the rumor out there, we should expect official confirmation or denial from Syfy pretty soon." LMAO, yeah, your article's putting the pressure on them!!!!

This guy is a bit of a clown, DC needs to work on the Flash not this joke.

@126thst Not CBM alone, but CBM plus the number of other sites that will run the story now that CBM has posted it. ;)

something tells me this movie would be a disaster. I know who he is and I would have zero interest in seeing a movie about him and I would take a wild guess, but I doubt I'm alone on that

come on now it could be much worse than this. WB could be moving forward with Lobo aannnndddd Booster Gold for the big screen. luckily we just have Lobo :/

with that said a T.V. show could work. nothing to get butthurt about. its on Syfy for christ sakes!what are we worried about lol
marvel72 - 4/23/2012, 8:15 AM

I like Booster. I will be watching this show if it airs.

If Booster Gold was a sandwich he would be Ham & Cheese. And that ain't good.
GreyChaos13Zero - 4/23/2012, 9:02 AM
that's cool, tho a movie would've been better. Blue Beetle needs some movie love also WB/DC?)
Nova2012 - 4/23/2012, 9:33 AM
Actually Booster isnt the joke he use to be...He straightened out his act before the new 52 reboot (correcting time errors)...and he's not a clown in the new continuity, he heads up the new JLI
CapedCrusader - 4/23/2012, 9:52 AM
Booster deserves a show!
longbowhunter - 4/23/2012, 10:04 AM
I'm a big Booster Gold fan. For better or worse I want this show to happen.

Good luck with that script. Hey SyFy? Pay attention!
soaponapope - 4/23/2012, 10:17 AM
booster is one of the better B-Listers in the DCU
kingmonkeyman - 4/23/2012, 11:18 AM
Some people have no taste whatsoever. Booster Gold is possible one of the greatest heroes DC has ever created. Can't wait for this show so Booster will finally get the respect he deserves.

Who watches SyFy?
Bartman87 - 4/23/2012, 1:12 PM
Well it would at least step up SyFy's line up of reality shows, unless they make it like a reality show starring Booster Gold going around saving people with the information from the future. SyFy has very few good shows any more and those they do are in their final seasons so all I've seen so far for replacements on the network are reality shows and a new game show with Urkel. So I'll take Booster Gold for the win.

Booster Gold is a better character than most people think. Check out "Time Masters:Vanishing Point"
