Stunning ‘Blue Beetle’ Suit Revealed in NEW Set Images!

Jaime Reyes is coming to the DCEU, and the character’s striking Blue Beetle costume has never looked better!

Warner Bros. has been putting a lot behind their upcoming Blue Beetle movie, and it’s definitely showing in the first look at the elaborate costume in live action.

Xolo Maridueña (Cobra Kai) plays Jaime Reyes, a teenager from El Paso, TX who finds an alien “scarab” that bonds with him, manifests a suit of high tech armor, and grants him super powers.

Created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers, and Cully Hamner during DC’s Infinite Crisis event back in 2006, Blue Beetle’s sleek, almost Tokusatsu-influenced design seems like it was destined for the screen almost from its inception.

Blue Beetle also stars Raoul Max Trujillo as the villainous Conrad Carapax, George Lopez as Jaime’s uncle Rudy, Harvey Guillén (our beloved Guillermo from What We Do In the Shadows), and Susan Sarandon as Victoria Kord, who is rumored to be an antagonist in the film, as well.

Despite originally being developed as an HBO Max release, Blue Beetle will be released in theaters on Aug. 18, 2023.

With more than a year from its release, it will be exciting to see the result for Blue Beetle as Jaime becomes one of the next DCEU heroes
