This summer, Blue Beetle will bring a new DC superhero to the big screen, and the first trailer is here to whet your appetite. The film is notable for being the first DC film to feature a Latino superhero, with Cobra Kai’s Xolo Mariduea playing Jaime Reyes, who gains abilities from an alien artifact.
Even though this is the second-to-last Worlds of DC film before the new era begins, we can only hope that this is not the last time we see Blue Beetle and Jaime Reyes.
But there’s no need to rush because I’ve included all the information you need about Blue Beetle below.

Blue Beetle Movie Plot
The first official synopsis for Blue Beetle was released alongside the debut trailer, and it was as hazy as the trailer. “Jaime Reyes, a recent college graduate with big future plans, returns home to find things have changed. Jaime is looking for his place in the world when he comes across the Scarab, a relic of extraterrestrial biotechnology.” It is available for reading.

“When the Scarab unexpectedly selects Jaime as its symbiotic host, he is endowed with a fantastic set of armor capable of astonishing and surprising powers, forever altering his destiny as he transforms into the superhero Blue Beetle.” In the comics, Reyes is the third person to don the costume of Blue Beetle, therefore he isn’t the first superhero to do so.
The original Blue Beetle was police officer Dan Garret, who gained superpowers after ingesting Vitamin 2X and first appeared in comics in 1939. A revised version debuted in 1964, making Garrett an archaeologist whose abilities originated from an ancient Egyptian scarab, making him more analogous to the contemporary Blue Beetle.
In 1966, Garrett’s student Ted Kord took over the role of Blue Beetle, and in 2006, Garrett’s former student Jaime Reyes took over the mantle.
