Ambitious list of DC Comics movies from Warner Bros. grows with the work being done on Blue beetle movie featuring Jaime Reyes version of the character.
According to a new report from The Wrap, writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer is working on the script for the new film, while Zev Foreman will be the executive producer of Warner Bros.
Dunnet-Alcocer had previously written the restart of Universal Pictures Scarface.
It will be one of the first autonomous superhero movies to feature a Latino character in mind. Warner Bros. introduced Jay Hernandez as El Diablo in Suicide teamand Rosie Perez will play Renee Montoya in the next movie Birds of prey movie.
Reyes succeeded Dan Garret and Ted Kord as Blue Beetle, although he uses an alien scarab attached to his back and considerably more powerful than his predecessors. The character appeared in recent DC Comics media adaptations, playing a leading role in the second season of Young justice.
The last trailer of Young justiceThe return of DC Universe also indicates that Blue Beetle will continue to play a major role in the series.
It seems that this project is different from the movie Booster Gold and Blue Beetle which was in preparation at Warner Bros. a few years ago, which was to have come from Greg Berlanti of the DC TV channel, written by veteran Marvel Zak Penn. .
These plans have probably been abandoned or never completed, like many other DC Comics-based projects that have been announced or reported in the press. Green Lantern Body, Cyborg, Nightwing, Bat girl, the Harley Quinn / Joker team movie, and Deadly blow have all been revealed in one way or another, although none of these projects have progressed beyond the development phase.
Whatever it is, it is encouraging to know that DC Films and Warner Bros. look beyond their proven stable of Justice League members or Batman characters and instead explore the possibility of raising the profile of lesser-known heroes.
The status of Blue Beetle has increased after the appearances in Young justice and the Injustice games, and is one of the most welcomed new heroes to come in the last 15 years.
We'll see if Warner Bros and DC Films really move forward in the project or if it will be stuck in development like many other titles that have been reported as a result of Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice.
