While Warner Bros. spent much more time and effort marketing The Flash, it seems as though its latest release, Blue Beetle, resonated much more strongly with critics who saw the film ahead of its August 18th premiere. The Angel Manuel Soto-directed superhero film was screened last week and again last night in São Paulo and, so far, has been a hit with critics.
While its score will certainly fluctuate over the next week or two, Blue Beetle opened to a strong 85% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes through its first 67 reviews.
USA Today’s Brian Truitt says Blue Beetle is “The DC movie universe has been holding out for a hero, and it might just be a 22-year-old Mexican college grad with a really cool family.” And the Reyes family seems to be a hit across the board with critics as Mashable’s Kristy Puchko and YouTuber Jimmy Cage point out.
Blue Beetle is set to premiere this weekend!
