Warner Bros. is providing DC fans with an exciting new movie, entitled “Blue Beetle”, which is set to hit theaters on August 18th. The trailer has finally been released giving viewers a small preview into the adventures of the bug-legged superhero. Xolo Maridueña of “Cobra Kai” fame stars as Jamie Reyes, a recent college graduate who is chosen to be the new host of a powerful suit of armor from an ancient object created the alien race known as the Reach. This sentient relic is dubbed Khaji Da and looks like a blue, metal scarab. It chooses Jamie as its host, giving him the ability to battle for justice on Earth.
The anticipation was high for this movie after the concept of the alien armor was first unveiled at the DC FanDome event in 2021. Soon after, pictures and clips showcasing Maridueña as Blue Beetle made their way around the web. Production company Warner Bros. had originally planned to release the film exclusively on HBO Max, but later decided to skip the streaming service and give “Blue Beetle” the big-screen debut it deserves. This makes it the first-ever Latino superhero to get a standalone movie in the DC franchise, much to the delight of DC fans everywhere.
