Despite the turnover at the top of the studio, DC’s Blue Beetle will release on August 18th. Audiences got their first look at the film in an exciting trailer and now a new synopsis provides a better idea of what to expect from the film by director Angel Manuel Soto.
Recent college grad Jaime Reyes returns home full of aspirations for his future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it. As he searches 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 to be its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the Super Hero Blue Beetle.
Blue Beetle stars Cobra Kai‘s Xolo Maridueña as Jamie Reyes/Blue Bettle with Raoul Max Trujillo starring as the film’s villain, Carapax. Adriana Barraza, Damían Alcázar, Elpidia Carrillo, Belissa Escobedo and George Lopez are all featured as members of Jaime’s family.
