According to The Wrap WB has officially greenlit a Blue Beetle film, that is set to start production later this year. It will be directed by Angel Manuel Soto (The Farm, Charm City Kings), and screenplay by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer. The film will focus on the Jaime Reyes incarnation of the character. Jaime Reyes is now set to be the first Latino lead in a DC film.
Jaime Reyes is the 3rd, and probably most popular, character to take on the mantle of Blue Beetle. Blue Beetle is most notable outside of the comics, for being a key character on the popular animated show Young Justice. Jaime takes up the mantle of Blue Beetle after coming into possession of the blue beetle scarab, a powerful piece of alien technology.
