Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle Movie Story
The upcoming Blue Beetle movie will follow the story of Jaime Reyes,
a teenage college graduate who gains superpowers when an alien Blue Beetle scarab grafts onto him, forming a powerful reconfiguring exoskeleton around his body.
The movie is set in Jaime's hometown of Palmera City, where he is struggling to find his place in the world.
He is a talented artist, but he is also shy and insecure.
When he finds the scarab, he is initially afraid of it, but he eventually learns to control its power and use it to fight crime.
As Blue Beetle, Jaime must balance his new life as a superhero with his normal life as a teenager.
He must also deal with the challenges of being a Mexican-American superhero in a world where superheroes are often seen as symbols of American exceptionalism.
The movie is directed by Angel Manuel Soto and stars Xolo Maridueña as Jaime Reyes, Susan Sarandon as Victoria Kord,
Adriana Barraza as Nana, Damián Alcázar as Alberto Reyes, Raoul Max Trujillo as Carapax the Indestructible Man, and George Lopez as Rudy.
