Increase the length of the list of DC superhero films that are being made, Warner Bros. now holding a Blue Beetle film, with a script written by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer. The film follows The Flash, Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey to Suicide Squad 2 as a DC Extended Universe film project which is being developed.
In his own comic, there are three characters who have worn Blue Beetle costumes, including Dan Garrett, Ted Kord and the latest Jaime Reyes. Especially for the film later, the studio dropped its choice on the version of Reyes, which in fact is of Latin blood. With Reyes’s background, the Blue Beetle became the first DC film to carry the main Latin character. Therefore, the Blue Beetle is considered to enrich the diversity of characters in DCEU.
FYI, before the Blue Beetle project existed, the studio had developed the Booster Gold film, which was planned to present a joint action of the character’s title and Blue Beetle. But for no apparent reason, this superhero movie duo no longer sounded echoed, and now it is precisely the Blue Beetle that made its solo film.
Meanwhile, besides the Blue Beetle, Gareth also became a script writer for two remake films, namely Scarface and Miss Bala. Gareth himself will later write the Blue Beetle which focuses on the story of Jaime Reyes, a teenager of American-Mexican descent who gets super powers after finding strange beetles after school. Thanks to the beetle, Reyes not only gained strength and agility, but also had armor, weapons and wings to fly. With the director still not found, for the time being the studio hasn’t set a release date for the Blue Beetle.
