The recently-confirmed Booster Gold film may be a part of the DC Films' slate, but it won't be part of its interconnected storyline. That's according to the film's co-writer and potential director Greg Berlanti, who spends his days overseeing all of DC's superhero shows on the CW.
"As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds," Berlanti told Vulture. "It'd be a separate thing."
Although the film currently has "no connective tissue" with the core DC films, that doesn't necessarily mean it's not in the same 'cinematic universe' so to speak - but rather, just not as interconnected as viewers have seen with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.
Berlanti goes on to confirm that the Booster Gold movie came out of the ashes of a failed TV show pitch he and Supergirl showrunner Andrew Kreisberg sold to Syfy in 2011 that "never got off the ground." Berlanti attributed DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns to reviving the idea as a movie.
No release date has been set for Booster Gold.
