It was confirmed by the end of November 2018, Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics were developing a film based on Jaime Reyes/Blue Beetle. By 2020, DC Comics was planning to release several mid-budget films a year on the streaming platform HBO Max, instead of theaters. In April 2021, Blue Beetle was included on DC’s slate of films that were expected to be released in 2022 or 2023, but finally it was decided that it would be released in August 2023.
Jaime Reyes or Blue Beetle is a fictional superhero who appears in the American comic books created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers and Cully Hamner. If we talk about the franchise’s comics, Blue Beetle made its first appearance in Infinity Crisis #3, published in 2006.
Jaime Reyes is the third character to assume the mantle of Blue Beetle, since the first character who wore Blue Beetle’s suit was Dan Garret which was introduced in 1939. Garret was a Fox Comics police officer who fought crime with superpowers gained by ingesting Vitamin 2X.
The introduction of Reyes in 2006 retconned and expanded upon the Blue Beetle mythos. It was revealed to be alien in origin, the scarab bonds with the character and gives him a suit of extraterrestrial armor shortly after Kord’s death (Theodore “Ted” Kord was the second Blue Beetle). Jaime Reyes/Blue Beetle is later inducted into the Teen Titans and the Justice League.
Is there an official trailer?
There is not an official trailer yet, and there has not been any announcement, yet DC Comics recently released the poster for the movie.
