Social media is buzzing with DC’s first Latino superhero, Blue Beetle (played by Cobra Kai star Xolo Mariduena) who takes to the action in the crazy trailer you can enjoy below:

In the long-awaited film, Jaime Reyes, a recent college graduate, returns home full of aspirations for his future to find that his home isn’t quite as he left it. As he seeks to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab.

When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime as its symbiotic host, he is endowed with an incredible armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers that will change his destiny forever by becoming the superhero BLUE BEETLE.

Featured alongside Maridueña are Adrian Barraza like Jaime’s grandmother, Nana, Damian Alcazar like his father, Elpidia Carrillo like his mother, Bruna Marquezine like Jenny Kord, Raoul Max Trujillo like Carapax with the Oscar winner Susan Sarandon like Victoria Kord and george lopez like Jaime’s Uncle Rudy.

The film also features Belissa Escobedo like Jaime’s sister, Milagro, and Harvey Guillén like Dr. Sanchez.

Angel Manuel Soto (Charm of the kings of the city) produced from a screenplay by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer based on DC characters. John Rickard And Foreman Zev produce with Walter Hamada, Galen VaismanAnd Garrett Grant serving as executive producers.

“Whether you’re Latino or not, it transcends ethnicity, it transcends color or skin because it’s something we can all relate to. [to]said Soto during a Warner Bros. trailer launch Q&A. The most exciting part is that although he is undeniably or shamelessly Latino, everyone will understand Milagros. Everyone understands Jaime because they are the people we have interacted with in our daily lives and the problems they face are problems we know.

“We are not a genre, nor are we a buzzword,” he continued. “It’s a superhero movie that has a Latino in the foreground. That’s it,” Soto said. The director later added that he hopes his movie “starts a conversation that allows us to make part of a global community and to embrace everyone’s differences in an exciting way”.

blue beetle hits theaters on August 18, 2023.
