It’s official! Warner Brothers has announced that a Blue Beetle film is in the works and will be directed by Angel Manuel Soto, this will also be the first big screen Latino superhero film!
Here’s what Variety said:
Soto’s movie will focus on the most recent version of Blue Beetle introduced in 2006 as a Mexican-American teenager named Jaime Reyes. His powers come from a mysterious scarab that binds to Reyes’ spine and provides him with a powerful suit of blue alien armor that can also equip him with bespoke weapons and wings.
Jaime Reyes is my favorite version of Blue Beatle, so this makes me happy. Also, the fact this will be the first leading Latino superhero on the big screen is wild! Overall, this was a great move by Warner Brothers and I can’t wait to see who they’ll cast for this film.
