According to a rumor from The Wrap, Brazilian starlet Bruna Marquezine has been cast as the female protagonist in the upcoming film Blue Beetle. She will portray Penny, the movie’s love interest for Jaime Reye.
As Milagros Reyes, Jaime’s younger sister, Belissa Escobedo has been cast in addition to Bruna. Harvey Guillén, who starred in What We Do in the Shadows, has also joined the cast, however, specifics on his character are being withheld on purpose.
The movie’s principal character, Jaime Reyes, also known as the Blue Beetle, will be played by Cobra Kai’s Xolo Mariduena. Angel Manuel Soto, who helmed Charm City Kings, will helm the film. The Blue Beetle movie from Warner Brothers is beginning to take form thanks to the casting of its four main protagonists.
The Blue Beetle movie was originally scheduled to be an HBO Max exclusive release, but Warner Brothers have subsequently altered its mind and will now release the film in August of 2019 on a larger scale.
It is unclear what will happen to Blue Beetle in light of Warner Bros.’s recent decision to delay all of their DC films, including The Flash and Aquaman.
Bruna Marquezine shared her joy about entering the DC world on Instagram.
Bruna Marquezine is well-known in Brazil and has acted in a number of notable telenovelas and blockbuster films. She previously made headlines due to her wooing of football player Neymar Jr.
Three people have previously assumed the role of Blue Beetle, a well-known DC comics character. Originally published by Charlton Comics, Blue Beetle Ted Kord was incorporated into the main DC world after DC acquired Charlton.
The movie could possibly have a tie to the DCEU TV series because Blue Beetle and Peacemaker have a strong relationship in the comics.
The most recent Blue Beetle comic book issue will be adapted for the upcoming film. A young Latino boy named Jaime Reyes has a tremendous transformation in his life when an extraterrestrial scarab adheres to his back and grants him superpowers.
The first superhero movie featuring a Latino lead is expected to be Blue Beetle. With the addition of Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine, the film is now poised to be very popular throughout Latin America.
DC Blue Beetle Movie Completes Filming, Unveils Best View of Iron Man-Like Suit
By introducing Jaime Reyes, the DCEU’s first Latin superhero, in Blue Beetle, the franchise will grow. The role is played by Xolo Mariduea (Cobra Kai) and is that of a young man who gains special powers from a Blue Beetle scarab that enables him to summon a superpowered suit. The movie is anticipated to go in-depth on Jaime Reyes’s backstory and perhaps take on the mystery surrounding the potent scarab, however narrative specifics are still being kept under wraps.
Originally slated for HBO Max, Blue Beetle, directed by Angel Manuel Soto (Charm City Kings), was instead secured by Warner Bros. for a 2023 theatrical debut. Early concept art for Jaime Reyes’ superhero costume resembles the Armored Avenger in many ways, suggesting that Iron Man from the MCU served as an influence.
Although Blue Beetle has been in production for some time, Susan Sarandon previously disclosed that she had finished filming the picture, thus it looks that production is nearing its conclusion. The whole cast and crew’s filming appears to have finished as of this moment.
DC’s Blue Beetle Finishes Filming
Blue Beetle Updates posted on Instagram that the filming for the DC movie “Blue Beetle” is completed. Blue Beetle director Angel Manuel Soto confirmed this.
Does Blue Beetle Have Any Impact on the DC Extended Universe?
Given that Blue Beetle’s theatrical premiere is still more than a year away, the most recent filming update is a good sign. The actors and crew have plenty of time for post-production and the unavoidable reshoots gave the existing schedule.
Warner Bros. hasn’t officially released an official look at Xolo Mariduea’s DCEU hero in costume, other from concept drawings and set shots. Given that filming is over, it’s likely that the studio will offer fans a glimpse of Jaime Reyes donning his superpowered costume as soon as feasible. Even yet, there’s a good likelihood that Blue Beetle will appear in the relaunched DC Extended Universe with Batgirl because it wouldn’t be right to just ignore the first Latinx superhero in the series. By doing this, the backstory of Blue Beetle may be developed in future sequels, and there will be prospects for crossovers with other DCEU new characters.
