The latest trailer for the upcoming DCU film Blue Beetle has officially dropped, and it showcases more of the powers granted to Jaime Reyes by the Scarab, Khaji Da. It presents fans with a fantastic display of what to expect when the film comes out, what the tone will be, as well as a little bit of what the story will be.

Check out the trailer below:

Xolo Maridueña takes on the role of Jaime Reyes, the Blue Beetle, and in this trailer we see his journey to becoming a superhero. After bonding with an ancient alien scarab, Jaime is transformed into the Blue Beetle. We get to see more of his amazing abilities than we did in the first trailer, and how his relationship with the Scarab will grow. Susan Sarandon  pops up again in this trailer as one of the film’s villain, Victoria Kord, who, in the comics, is the sister of the previous Blue Beetle, Ted Kord, as does Carapax the Indestructible Man, played by Raoul Trujillo, in a very comics accurate suit.

The movie will follow recent college grad Jaime Reyes as he returns home full of aspirations for his future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it. As he searches to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab. When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the Super Hero BLUE BEETLE.


The film stars Xolo Maridueña as Jaime Reyes/Blue Beetle, with Susan Sarandon set to play the film’s main villain, Victoria Kord. Belissa Escobedo is set to play Jaime’s sister Milagro Reyes, while Brazilian star Bruna Marquezine has signed on to play Jaime’s love interest Penny. George Lopez will be playing Jaime’s uncle Rudy and Raoul Trujillo is set to play a secondary villain in Carapax the Indestructible Man. Harvey Guillén is also set to appear.

Angel Manuel Soto directs from a screenplay by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, based on characters from DC.

Blue Beetle is set to hit theaters on August 18, 2023.
