The First Trailer For DC’s Blue Beetle Scuttles Online
He’s a superhero. Whether he likes it or not. Based on the DC Comics character, Blue Beetle will be scuttling into theaters in August.
The new DCU is starting to take shape. With rumors that June’s The Flash will change the current timelines, all eyes will turn to August and the release of Blue Beetle. The film is the first comic book movie to feature an almost completely Latino cast. The film stars Xolo Maridueña, Bruna Marquezine, Belissa Escobedo, George Lopez, Adriana Barraza, Elpidia Carrillo, Damián Alcázar, Raoul Trujillo, and Susan Sarandon.
Back in January, James Gunn revealed that the movie would be ‘disconnected’ from the previous DCEU entries. It could be made a part of the new direction he and Peter Safran would be taking the franchise in the future. Originally, the movie was supposed to be an HBO Max exclusive before the decision to release it theatrically was made. The build-up to the film’s August 18th release has started with today’s release of the first trailer. Get into costume and prepare to meet Jaime Reyes / Blue Beetle for the first time:
Blue Beetle will be scuttling into theaters on August 18th.
