DC & Warner Bros developing Blue Beetle movie

I’m not balking at BB per se…I am simply questioning the validity when DC has struggled so much in getting A list characters to the screen. I think the release of this flick will be contingent on the successes of this year’s release of Aquaman and next year’s Joachim Phoenix fronted Joker origin. We shall see. Brought to you by the folks who pushed back a Wonder Woman sequel- and sure fire hit- until next year…REC

Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer (Scarface, Miss Bala) will be writing DC and Warner Bros.’ first Latino superhero movie, Blue Beetle, TheWrap has confirmed. The story about comic character Jaime Reyes is currently in development.

In the comics created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers, and Cully Hammer, Mexican-American teenager Jaime Reyes is the third character to assume the mantle of the Blue Beetle after Dan Garret and Ted Kord. The character first appeared in 2006’s Infinite Crisis #5, followed by his own monthly series that debuted in May of 2006 with Blue Beetle #1.

Jaime Reyes discovered the Blue Beetle scarab on the way home from school with two of his best friends Paco and Brenda, half-buried in a disused lot. Reyes took the scarab home, curious as to what it might be. That night, the scarab came alive, and grafted itself to the base of Jaime’s spine, and provided him with a suit of extraterrestrial armor which can be modified to enhance his speed and strength, as well as to create weapons, wings and shields.

Zev Foreman will serve as executive producer on the project for Warner Bros. This will mark the first time a Latino lead will be featured in a stand-alone superhero title for DC.
