BLUE BEETLE Teaser: Xolo Maridueña Suits Up For WB/DC’s Next Chapter
Life after The Flash will be an interesting phase to observe for fans of the DC comic brand following several years of Snyderverse upheaval and exclamatory studio goings-on at the now-fledged WB Discovery. With the Andy Muschietti-directed chapter setting the stage for things to segue into the Gunn/Safran era, it’s anyone’s guess now where Warner Bros. Pictures’ Blue Bettle falls in the scheme of things, but the first trailer is now online and dares to impress, with Cobra Kai series regular Xolo Maridueña headlining the character’s debut presentation on the big screen.
Recent college grad Jaime Reyes returns home full of aspirations for his future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it. As he searches to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab.
When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the Super Hero BLUE BEETLE.
