Blue & Gold are one of the favorite teams from DC lore and it looks like they may be getting their own film. According to The Tracking Board and Heroic Hollywood, not only are Booster Gold and Blue Beetle getting their own film, as developed by Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment.

Writer and producer Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is set to executive produce and direct the film and Zak Penn is being eyed to write. Penn has written The Incredible Hulk and the upcoming Ready Player One.

However, while both sources say this movie is happening, they also both have different Blue Beetles in play. One source says Jaime Reyes will be the Blue Beetle and the other claims it will be Ted Kord. Both sources claim that this will be a buddy cop film, which feels more like a Ted Kord/Booster Gold film over Jaime Reyes.

Berlanti has been heavily involved with the CW Network shows, mainly writing and producing, and while Berlanti has directed in the past, it just seems like a bit of a stretch to have him be writing all of these shows and directing a DC film.

Currently, there is no confirmation or denial about the Blue and Gold film rumor. We'll keep you updated as more develops.

TED IT HAS TO BE TED!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!

Can we also find some way to add Giffen and DeMatteis to be part of the creative team? Their JLI/JLA run was the funniest comics I have ever read!

I hope it's true just to shut up people who say DC is too serious.

Really Excited!!!

Booster Gold opens a lot of doors, more so than the flash in terms of time travel.

What at @captain13 posted does worry me though, that's the first thing i researched when i heard the news, all of Berlanti's work concerning film. Hope this is given a lot of care and maybe a really good(i don't wanna say better) director.

Definitely prefer Jaime but if it's a duo film with Booster, Ted would make the most sense.

Remember, Greg Berlanti co-wrote the script to Green Lantern. If you know what I'm saying...

It would be funny if they turned this into a "dark" and "gritty" movie with neck snapping and depressed moody bearded peoples flashbacks. It wouldn't surprise me either.

This is WB's equivalent of Guardians of the Galaxy where they try their luck with a team most non-comic book readers probably doesnt know about with hopefully a more fun, bright colors and not so realistic approach

It has to be Ted Kord to work. Both have to be misfits. But we'll have to see how SS turns out before we can do anything like this. And the director if Flash/Arrow? :/

I'm still very happy they're even considering this movie though

Why do people have a problem with Berlanti? Then again I've always wondered why people had a problem with Joss even though he gave us buffy, angel and firefly or snyder who gave us 300, dawn of the dead and watchmen. Ehh different strokes I guess.

To be fair, Flash opens up the potential for multiversal travel.

Gold brings in time-travel. Different, but both fun subjects to learn about and see.

They're one movie in. The next two haven't been released. They've movies slated until 2020, I believe?

A bit premature to call it too serious when we don't know the tone of the various movies.

This is WB's equivalent of Guardians of the Galaxy where they try their luck with a team most non-comic book readers probably doesnt know about with hopefully a more fun, bright colors and not so realistic approach

Wouldn't that be the role Suicide Squad occupies? Lesser-known team, but more in line with what DC is known for.

Justice League Dark would fit that role better too.

@scouterv: I really dont see the putpose of a SS movie besides using it to cement DC's dark and serious style or maybe like an excuse to have another Batman and Joker movie without reintroducing the characters from scratch

Not a big fan of either of them but i think i'd give it a watch. To me i think a movie for those 2 would be a straight to tv or dvd release rather then in theaters.
