Warner Bros. Pictures have revealed the first trailer (watch above) for the DC Comics superhero film, ‘Blue Beetle,’ which is currently scheduled to be released in the theaters on August 18, 2023, worldwide.
The trailer shows Xolo Maridueña's teenage character Jaime gaining incredible superpowers and a suit when an alien Blue Beetle "Scarab" enters his body, forming a powerful exoskeleton suit around his body as they launch into space through the roof of their house.
In the movie, Jaime Reyes (Xolo Maridueña), a recent college graduate, returns home with high hopes for his future, only to discover that his home has changed. As he searches for his place in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unintentionally acquires an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab. When the Scarab unexpectedly selects Jaime as its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever altering his destiny as the superhero Blue Beetle.
The film stars Xolo Maridueña as Jaime Reyes/Blue Beetle, Bruna Marquezine as Penny: Jaime's love interest, Belissa Escobedo as Milagros Reyes: Jaime's younger sister, George Lopez as Rudy: Jaime's uncle, Adriana Barraza as Nana, Elpidia Carrillo as Rocio, Damián Alcázar as Alberto, Raoul Trujillo as Carapax the Indestructible Man, Susan Sarandon as Victoria Kord, and Harvey Guillén.
