BLUE BEETLE Set Photos Give Us A First Look At Xolo Maridueña In Full Costume

Production on Warner Bros.' Blue Beetle movie got underway earlier this week, and some new set photos giving us a first glimpse of star Xolo Maridueña in full costume have now been shared online!

Cameras are now rolling on Warner Bros.' Blue Beetle movie, and following a few unrevealing set photos that were shared online earlier this week, we have a first look at Cobra Kai star Xolo Maridueña in full costume as the titular hero.

We had a pretty good idea of what to expect from the outfit thanks to some concept art released during DC FanDome last year, and they clearly stuck pretty close to that initial design.

Check out the photos in the Tweets below, and let us know what you think of the costume.

Sharon Stone is set to play a newly created character named Victoria Lord, but a rumor that Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis will play her son, Ted Kord, has now been debunked. Brazilian newcomer Bruna Marquezine is also on board as the female lead and Reyes' love interest Penny, and Belissa Escobedo (Sex Appeal, American Horror Stories) as Jaime's younger sister Milagros Reyes. Harvey Guillen’s (What We Do In The Shadows) role is currently being kept under wraps.

Directed by Angel Manuel Soto, the film will focus on Maridueña's take on Reyes, who was introduced back in 2006's Infinite Crisis. The Mexican-American teen was actually the third character to take up the mantle of Blue Beetle after Dan Garret and Ted Kord - although he's arguably eclipsed both in popularity since. Mexican-born writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer penned the screenplay, and John Rickard is on board as producer.

The movie was originally being developed as a HBO Max exclusive, but we recently found out that The DCEU's first Latino lead hero will make his feature debut on the big screen on August 18, 2023.
