Earlier, Blue Beetle and the now-canceled Batgirl were scheduled for a direct-to-stream debut on HBO Max. Fans were concerned for Blue Beetle’s future when DC decided to halt the latter movie’s development following a significant change in the studio’s administration.

The decision to distribute the movie in theatres was made by the producers, much to the relief of the fans. With the release of the first poster, we can now anticipate the official teaser and trailer for the movie.

The first superhero movie with a Latinx lead will be Blue Beetle

Xolo Mariduea, star of Cobra Kai, will portray the El Paso-based youngster who transforms into a superhero in the movie. He stated earlier this year when discussing the movie, “This is actually going to be a stepping stone in my life.”

I’ve had the opportunity to develop chemistry with these individuals throughout the years on Cobra Kai, Mariduea continued. It will be challenging to try to recreate that chemistry in a shorter period of time, but all of these men are experts.

“I am confident that I am in the hands of experts in my field. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have the chance at Cobra Kai; I can perform stunts, and we can do insane things. I’m really eager for the entire new crazy level that adding this new level of the green screen, suits, CGI, and all of the stuff will add to it.

In addition to Xolo Mariduea, Susan Sarandon will play Victoria Kord, the major antagonist, in the movie. Jamie’s sister Milagros Reyes will be portrayed by Belissa Escodobo, and Penny, his love interest, will be portrayed by Bruna Marquezine.
