We have had a couple of articles now about the DCEU movie Blue Beetle, which recently started production. Without fail, there are already some set photos online showing off the character in full costume.

Xolo Mariduena, best known for Netflix’s Cobra Kai, is playing Jamie Reyes AKA the Blue Beetle. He can been seen in a recent tweet in the full outfit.

The costume is very close to the concept art that DC showed off last year. Here are the bigger versions of the photos.

The story of Blue Beetle is:

“A Mexican teenager finds an alien beetle that gives him superpowered armor.”

This version is actually the third incarnation of the character. The first was by Fox Comics, which was later owned by Charlton Comics. The second was by DC Comics, appearing in the Crisis on Infinite Earth.

Blue Beetle is being directed by new director Angel Manuel Soto. The writer is Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer who wrote Miss Bala in 2019. The movie stars Mariduena, Susan Sarandon, Raoul Max Trujillo, George Lopez and Elpidia Carrillo. Mariduena has recently said that Cobra Kai has been great training for the movie:

“This is really gonna be a stepping stone in my life. I’ve gotten the chance to build chemistry with these people over the years on Cobra Kai. To try to recreate that chemistry in a much shorter amount of time is gonna be difficult, but all of these guys are professionals.

I know that I’m in the hands of people who are the best at what they do. The opportunity at Cobra Kai has really blessed me; I can do stunts, we can do crazy stuff. Adding this new level of green screen and suits and CGI and all of this will add a whole new crazy level to it that I’m so excited for.”

Blue Beetle will be out on 18th August 2023.
