The DC Extended Universe is three films into its shared superhero sandbox. So far we’ve had the Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. And with plenty more DC Films coming out over the next few years, it was expected all would be part of the shared universe that’s being established at Warner Bros.
But that doesn’t look like it will be the case for one superhero (maybe).
Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl executive super-producer Greg Berlanti, who’s been working on bringing DC Character Booster Gold to the big screen spoke with Vulture and revealed the time travelling hero currently isn’t part of the DCEU.
“As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. It’d be a separate thing.”
Booster Gold was originally being adapted by Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg as a TV Series, part of The CW’s Arrowverse. So it’s possible that when in early development, and knowing the TV side of DC isn’t part of the movie universe, they never bothered with the intertwining of the two because of that.
I’m fine with Booster Gold not being part of the DCEU. He’s one of the very few characters within the comics that annoy me. However in the future if Warner Bros want to make amends and bring Booster Gold into the fold, they could always use the Multiverse. Simple.
