This weekend saw the release of the DC Comics movie Blue Beetle. Blue Beetle is a lesser-known comic book character along the lines of the character Booster Gold. Both of these characters are fun, interesting, and worth a movie.
After watching Blue Beetle, I’m glad DC Comics decided to produce and release this film. It was a fun run through a character that doesn’t get enough love.
There have been three Blue Beetles in the comic books. Dan Garrett was the original Blue Beetle. Ted Kord was the second. The third, and focus of the Blue Beetle movie, is Jaime Reyes (Xolo Maridueña). Directed by Angela Manuel Soto and written by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, the film pay homage to the first two Blue Beetles by mentioning them throughout the movie.
