Booster Gold, the superhero from the future who joined the DC Comics universe in 1986, is being developed as Syfy TV series.
Gold’s secret identity is Michael Jon Carter, a disgraced athlete from the 25th century who now fights crime in the present day using technology from his native era.
Now the bad news. Longtime “Dawson’s Creek” showrunner Greg Berlanti, who created ABC’s horrible superhero saga “No Ordinary Family” and wrote the failed big-screen version of “Green Lantern” (18% positive reviews among top critics over at Rotten Tomatoes) is overseeing the project.
“Warehouse 13” writer Andrew Kriesberg, who worked with Berlanti on “Eli Stone,” will pen a pilot script.
Gold was voiced by Tom Everett Scott in both “Justice League Unlimited” and “Batman: The Brave and the Bold.” A live-action version of the hero was portrayed by Eric Martisoff in the 18th episode of “Smallville’s” final season.
