Greg Berlanti, producer extraordinaire for DC’s television shows, has started that there will be “no connective tissue” between the upcoming Booster Gold movie and either the DC movies or DC television shows (collectively the DC Extended Universe). As someone who hasn’t enjoyed the films, let me be the first to personally thank Greg Berlanti.
Booster Gold has long been a silly, fun character. He is a man from the future who stole some equipment, came back in time, and tried to make himself famous by fighting crime. It’s really a fun basis for a film and not at all the kind of angst-filled, grim-dark nonsense that populates the Zack Snyder movie universe. Let’s home a lighter, more fun DC movie can finally be the great one.
