Blue Beetle: the film should dust off the DC universe

The movie Blue Beetle from DC has just unveiled its poster. What to expect? This is what we know.

Recently, James Gunn who is now co-CEO of DC Studios has just unveiled on his personal Twitter account the poster of one of the next films to come on the big screen around the DC universe, it is about Blue Beetlea superhero ultimately relatively unknown to the general public.

Slated for 2023, the film will follow the adventures of Jaime Reyes, a teenager who is gifted with superhuman strength, speed and armor when an alien beetle attaches itself to him. The film should dust off the Marvel universe a bit by offering an almost exclusively Latin American cast. Same thing with the direction/production with the presence of Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer in writing and Angel Manuel Soto as director. It should also be his first big film.

The actor Xolo Maridueña (who we could see in the series Cobra-Kai) will be the lead actor and performer of Blue Beetle. The star of Hocus Pocus 2, Belissa Escodobo will play Jaime’s sister and young actress Bruna Marquezine his girlfriend. Note that in the history of Comics there have been 3 characters who embody this superhero and Jaime is the third of them. In this latest version, Jaime Reyes is a teenage fan of Batman and ends up becoming what he always dreamed of being: a superhero. Obviously, as nothing is simple, everything will end up being complicated.

In short, Blue Beetle should be a bit for Latin Americans what represents Black Panther for the African American community. A film that should leave more room for the country’s minorities.
