Back in May we learned that the DCEU’s dark, dingy corners might have a little light shined into them by way of Booster Gold, the cocky, funny, quick-witted fellow form the future who steals some high-tech gear and travels back in time to the present day in order to make a name for himself as a superhero. Now we’ve learned that the Booster Gold movie won’t be involved in the DC cinematic universe at all.
There have been plenty of rumors to suggest that Warner Bros. is aware of the problems with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and although it’s going to be fairly difficult for the studio to course-correct, there are a few optimistic cards on the table. One of them is a Booster Gold movie, with WB reportedly setting Thor and X-Men: First Class scribe Zack Stentz to develop a screenplay with — here’s the best part — DC TV’s Greg Berlanti producing.
A few weeks ago, we learned that Legends of Tomorrow might introduce a major DC hero (sadly not Batman Beyond) in its finale to set up Season 2, and now, said mystery man at least has one name. Suits and Orphan Black star Patrick J. Adams will give Legends of Tomorrow a boost into Season 2, but as whom?
Although most of their creations remain unexploited on the big screen, DC has just as deep a roster of cool characters as Marvel.

Can we expect time-traveling fan-favorite Booster Gold? And who in the world is Franz Drameh’s Jay Jackson?
Whereas just hours ago, Syfy announced that it had at least five new reality series greenlit for production now at the 2012 Upfront event they've announced their largest development slate to date, with a whopping twenty-eight new series. But of the order, how many of them will actually make it to air?
