Warner Bros. Developing ‘Blue Beetle’

Blue Beetle - DC Comics News

Warner Bros. ever changing slate of potential DC adaptations has just added Blue Beetle to the list.

DC Comics has really been pushing for people to accept the Jaime Reyes version over the Ted Kord Blue Beetle for some time now. He has appeared in Young Justice, Batman Brave and Bold and even Smallville. It seems this movie is continuing that approach. Writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer and producer Zev Foreman are planning to bring Reyes to the big screen. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean Ted Kord can’t make an appearance since the two have worked together in the comics.

For a time, there were plans for a Booster Gold and Blue Beetle film that would have featured Ted Kord. It was going to be produced and possibly directed by Greg Berlanti. But after the disappointing box office of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Warner Bros. made changes, then after the flop of Justice League Warner Bros. once again made more changes (of course they never changed the common denominator of their failures). After all those changes and this announcement, it’s safe to assume that movie was scrapped.

As of now the current DC slate is Shazam, Birds of Prey, and The Batman with word that Green Lantern Corps, Nightwing, Harley Quinn/Joker and Batgirl were still projects being developed.

But being Warner Bros. don’t get too excited. One under performing film and they will simply change everything again.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
