Greg Berlanti Confirms BOOSTER GOLD Movie; Reveals Why He Wouldn't Direct A FLASH Movie Without Grant Gustin

Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti confirms his and Zack Stentz's involvement with Booster Gold while also revealing why he has no plans to helm the Scarlet Speedster's movie...

In a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter, DC TV producer extrodinairre Greg Berlanti confirmed that Warner Bros. are moving forward with a Booster Gold movie, and it definitely sounds like he's eyeing the director's chair for that particular DC Comics adaptation. "I'm attached to a few films [at Warner Bros.] now, and one, Booster Gold, is a DC property. Zack Stentz, who wrote an episode of Flash last year, just got the job, so he's writing the script now. I'd probably direct that, or I would want to. But I don't see my cup as limited. I actually think some of the stuff we get to do on the TV side is richer, deeper and more like the true comic books in the sense that you're always able to explore a new thing the next week and the stories grow wider and wider." That's evident from how well The Flash has been doing on the small screen, and with the Fastest Man Alive's movie recently losing its director, Berlanti revealed that he doesn't have any plans to take the helm of that. 

"No one's discussed that with me, but I could never direct a Flash movie that Grant Gustin wasn't the lead of," he explained. "He's my Flash." As for the advice he would give whoever does end up in charge of that one, Berlanti added: "We have three words above the door [of the Flash writers room]: "Heart, humor and spectacle. If you're going to do something like The Flash, part of what made Barry Allen so great was that he was this guy in the middle of all these superheroes who couldn't believe that he was there, and he loved it. It was the first comic book character who made me cry. He died in Crisis on Infinite Earths saving everybody, and he was the last one anyone expected to save everyone, so inherent in this character was this heartbroken sadness and sacrifice, but at the same time this joy. That duality is something I've really latched on to in a lot of what I've done. This is the only Flash I'd know how to do." What do you guys think of these comments from the producer?
