Default Blue Beetle and Booster Gold Movie

Has there been any updates on this?

I know Warner Brothers wanted to cast an already established comedy duo for box office reasons (Like Franco/Rogen or Will Ferrell/John C Riley).

I would love to see Ted Kord on screen, I'm a sucker for gadgets (Mission Impossible, James Bond etc) and I feel a superhero that is 100% gadget based would be really fun!

Just got a casting idea for a Blue/Gold movie (as unlikely as it would be):

Edgar Wright directs Simon Pegg as Booster Gold and Nick Frost as Blue Beetle!!

(Remember Ted Kord had a period in the comics where he struggled w/ weight issues)

Jaime is a better character but including him basically ruins the Booster/Blue dynamic. Let's be honest here. Blue Beetle is a better character on his own when it's Jaime. And if it's Ted, Booster HAS to be there.

Plus, Jaime is on the Titans while Booster interacts more with the League.

There was a moment where Jamie Blue Beetle was so popular, I really thought if DC played their cards right he could have been their equivalent of Marvel's spider man.

Then he just kind of disappeared which is too bad because he is such a cool character. DC kinda dropped the ball on that. Same with Static Shock I felt he could have been a huge character for them if they'd done more.

Jaime is the Blue Beetle I'm most interested in so if he isn't included in the DCEU and they go with the Ted (or the Dan version) I'll be extremely disappointed.

I get that Booster Gold/Ted Kord are a thing in the comics but I just think Jaime has a cooler look, much better power set and is a more interesting character than both. To be honest I don't see this movie happening any time soon, especially with all the movies DC currently has lined up.

Not something they'd ever do, but here's an idea: a Blue Beetle movie that is about the legacy element of the character. So you have Jaime, Ted, and hell, even Dan Garrett show up. You could even have them meet, by way of Booster Gold and time travel.

I agree Jaime is the cooler blue beetle. But I must disagree and hope they could actually do a movie where the mantle is passed for a three part trilogy. People who don't know the mythology would be surprised and I feel I would actually help Jaime be a better character.

If it's an increasingly annoyed Booster Gold, take my money.
