Blue Beetle is headed to the big screen

Having now committed to Aquaman and Shazam movies, Warner Bros. is ready to kick it into next gear. According to The Wrap, the studio has started development on a movie about Blue Beetle—though not the one we at TV-VCR have actively campaigned for. This is not the Ted Kord version of Blue Beetle, so often teamed with Booster Gold; this is Jaime Reyes, the El Paso-born Latino teen who next finds the scarab that bestows on him the mantle of Blue Beetle. Like with Marvel’s starting Ant-Man with Scott Lang, it’s a move that could easily work, but also skips over one of our great bug-men. So we’ll see how it goes.
