Blue Beetle: Trailer Talk

This year’s ‘The Flash’ film will mark DC’s last movie under the original management, before James Gunn’s takeover of the comic production company as Head of DC. And the trailer for the first DCEU film under his name has been revealed.

‘Blue Beetle’ stars Xolo Maridueña (Netflix’s Cobra Kai) as Jamie Reyes, a Mexican teenager who becomes host to the Scarab, an alien beetle who gives him superpowered armour.



With James Gunn taking over, I have hope that the upcoming films and shows will become much more light-hearted when needed. Excluding ‘Shazam!’ and ‘The Suicide Squad’, DC’s slate of films have been devoid of humour and, even colour, so hopefully that will change. And the first trailer for ‘Blue Beetle’ gives me high hopes. 

‘Blue Beetle’ is not a property I am familiar with, but it looks like a lot of fun. It also looks like a well-executed superhero origin story, as Jamie is suddenly plunged into this new, unfamiliar, situation and will have to learn to come to terms with his new powers quickly. And in that, humour can be injected as evident in the trailer, when he is first merged with the Scarab in front of his family. And the overall problem that needs to be solved looks to be a small scale one, instead of an ‘end-of-the-world’ scenario, something that I am thankful for. 

DC’s ‘Blue Beetle’ isn’t a superhero I am familiar with, but the trailer has made a great first impression. It looks like a lot of fun and even looks funny, something that the DCEU is in desperate need of. Overall, I have high hopes for this film.
