Blue Beetle Costume Revealed ! See Now


The first look at new DC movie Blue Beetle doesn't disappoint, with Xolo Maridueña looking like a perfect choice for Jaime Reyes in one of the best superhero movie costumes we've ever seen!


Jaime Reyes is coming to the DCEU, and the character’s striking Blue Beetle costume has never looked better! Warner Bros. has been putting a lot behind their upcoming Blue Beetle movie, and it’s definitely showing in the first look at the elaborate costume in live action


 Xolo Maridueña (Cobra Kai) plays Jaime Reyes, a teenager from El Paso, TX who finds an alien “scarab” that bonds with him, manifests a suit of high tech armor, and grants him super powers.


 Created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers, and Cully Hamner during DC’s Infinite Crisis event back in 2006, Blue Beetle’s sleek, almost Tokusatsu-influenced design seems like it was destined for the screen almost from its inception.


But despite appearing in numerous DC   animated projects (notably Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Young Justice), Beetle’s only live action appearance so far came in Smallville season 10, episode 18, “Booster” where he was unfortunately saddled with a weirdly bulky look that didn’t manage to capture the coolness of the comics look.


That doesn’t look like it’s going to be a problem with the Blue Beetle movie, though. Thanks to the folks at JustJared, we have our first look at Maridueña in full Blue Beetle regalia on the set of the film in Atlanta, GA, and we’re pleased to report that he looks absolutely awesome.


This isn’t just a comics accurate look, it’s a beautifully realized costume.


 And most importantly? Blue Beetle co-creator Cully Hamner seems appropriately pleased by the look!
