DC Comics “Blue Beetle” Movie Director Spotted In El Paso
It looks like El Paso is getting its very own superhero movie based on the appearance of the Blue Beetle director and cinematographer in the city.
With the success of movies like Suicide Squad and The Batman, it doesn't look like DC Comics superhero movies are slowing down anytime soon. So it makes sense that they're developing movies based on some lesser-known superheroes in their stable, like Blue Beetle. The forthcoming Blue Beetle movie is reported to have cast some A-list actors.
According to Gizmodo, the cast is stacked with talent like Cobra Kai’s Xolo Maridueña as Jaime Reyes/Blue Beetle, the also-just-announced Raoul Max Trujillo (Mayans M.C., Apocalypto) as Carapax the Indestructible Man, George Lopez as Uncle Rudy, and Harvey Guillén (What We Do in The Shadows).
This is why it's so cool to see the director of the new Blue Beetle movie, Angel Manuel Soto, and the cinematographer of the rebooted version of the Blue Beetle in El Paso. Could they be scouting locations?
DC Comics created the character Blue Beetle a long time ago. The original hero was a man named Ted Cord but in the 2000s a Blue Beetle reboot made Jaime Reyes the first Latino superhero for the comic book company.
Guess where Jaime Reyes is from? If you guessed El Paso you would be absolutely correct. In Jaime Rayes's first appearance in the comic books, there is even an art panel showing El Paso's famous courthouse.
