Blue Beetle- Under the direction of James Gunn and Peter Safran, the DC Universe is moving into a completely new era. Nonetheless, several initiatives from the previous DC management are still scheduled to be released this year. This summer, the superhero Jaime Reyes from Blue Beetle (2023), played by none other than Xolo Mariduea of Cobra Kai, will hit movies.
He adds a new dimension to the live-action adaptation of the comic book character because he is the first Latino lead in a DC project. Here are all the facts you need to know about this eagerly awaited project, including the release date, the story, the trailer, the actors, and more.
Blue Beetle Release date
The movie Blue Beetle will debut in theaters on August 18 according to Warner Bros.
The movie was initially intended to be released straight to HBO Max, but the plan was modified in December 2021, and it will now be shown in theaters (via The Hollywood Reporter).
During May and July of last year, Atlanta, Georgia, El Paso, Texas, and Puerto Rico served as the backdrop for filming. In late June, Susan Sarandon posted a photo from the set in San Juan, Puerto Rico, announcing that she had finished filming her part as the movie’s villain.
Blue Beetle Cast
According to Entertainment Weekly, Cobra Kai cast member Xolo Mariduea, who portrays the main role of Blue Beetle, also known as Jaime Reyes, is making history as the first Latino actor to star in a DC film. He is joined by some well-known actors, like George Lopez (a comedian) as Jaime’s Uncle Rudy, Academy Award contender Adriana Barazza (for Amores Perros) as his “Nana,” and Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (replacing Sharon Stone) as Victoria Lord, a new enemy in the comic books.
In addition, Elpidia Carrillo from the Predator movies, Bruna Marquezine from God Save the King, Belissa Escobedo from Hocus Pocus 2, and Damián Alcázar from Narcos are also part of the Blue Beetle cast as Penny, Jaime’s love interest. According to reports, Mayans M.C.’s Raoul Max Trujillo will play the comic book antagonist Carapax, while Harvey Guillén, well known for his work on FX’s What We Do in the Dark series, will also appear in an unnamed role.
