I did not know this, but apparently the CW wants to compliment their Arrow not only with Booster Gold but Wonder Woman as well. They’ve already looked at casting according to ComicBookMovie.

NBC already tried this and failed, though from what we heard about it that’s a good thing. The lead actress just didn’t fit the part, the costuming department had a stroke, and the background was a bit off base.

CW seems to want to go the way of Arrow, make it ‘realistic’ with her being a warrior raised girl in the big city. Could work… but really depends on how they approach it and whether or not the audience are going to get super-human’d out.

Hugh Jackman joins Stewart and McKellen in reprising their roles for Days of Future Past according to CinemBlend. This was almost a given seeing as Jackman was in First Class and the immortal-ish nature of his character means he can fit anywhere.

I still think he would be a good fit for the time-traveller since, again, he’s old enough to be in both places, but at the same time I don’t want another Wolverine movie. That is what made First Class such a breath of fresh air, it wasn’t “the Wolverine” show like the first three movies.

No word yet on any of the other cast. Famke was apparently up for it in Wolverine so if they call I’m sure she’ll be right there. Paquin just had a kid and got a good thing going on TV so she may not be up for it. I don’t think anyone else of note is doing anything big right now so could see Bobby, Kitty, Beast, etc.

As much as this is cool though, I really want to see this whole thing rebooted so we can have one kick butt Rogue… yes… I do have a one track mind.

A Booster Gold tv series had been talked about, but as ComicBookMovie points out, the idea isn’t dead. The man behind Arrow stated that he’s still working on the project and going to pitch the idea by Christmas.

Booster has a 50/50 chance. I say this because while Smallville did excellent and Arrow so far isn’t too shabby, Wonder Woman got tanked and Booster Gold is not exactly a household name. True, Green Arrow wasn’t one either but he had the bonus of being a major character on Smallville for some time during the end of its run. That at least helped in bringing over the Smallville audience.

This is definitely one of those ‘wait and see’ kind of projects.

CinemaBlend reports that Matthew Vaughn likely left Days of Future Past to work on a Mark Miller adaptation called The Secret Service. Since Mark Miller is in charge of FOX’s comic-book-movie franchises it looks like he wasted no time getting his own project up and running.

According to TVLine, Brett Dalton is the next relative newbie to be brought into the S.H.I.E.L.D. tv series from Whedon.

He’s deadly, precise, and cool under fire — but not so great with the people skills.

So he’s kinda cliché? And it looks like the cast will be a bunch of 20-something hotties with this trend. Sounds about right… that’s the target demo for most tv audiences but I would hope he’d do something for the older audiences too.
