'Bluebeetle' Series Heading to HBO Max!

Updated: Oct 29, 2020

The Latino superhero is reportedly making his way to the small screen! Creative Officer Geoff Johns had announced via Twitter that they have screen tested a live action Scarab and that "It. Is. Awesome."

Jaime Reyes' double life as Blue Beetle

This is likely refering to Mexican American Jaime Reyes incarnation of Blue Beetle. While this may not be the first live action version of Blue Beetle (as he has appeared before in Smallville played by Jaren Brandt Bartlett) it could be an indication that HBO Max will be casting a Mexican American to play the role, making this the first Latino lead superhero series (since Marvel has cancelled on Robbie Reyes Ghostrider starring Gabriel Luna).

Live Action Test of the Scarab in Action

No word on when we'll be seeing the Blue Beetle himself land on the small screen but we can definitely say we're happy that the DCTV Universe is expanding even further, especially after the events of Arrowverse's Crisis on Infinite Earths!
