DC has been in a bit of a slump lately with The Flash, Shazam, and Black Adam. That should turn around with their vibrant new film Blue Beetle. Xolo Maridueña is best known for playing Miguel on Cobra Kai, and now he’s tackling the title role of Jaime Reyes. Jaime has recently graduated and has moved back home with his family in Palmera City. He’s excited for his first job at KORD Industries, but the first day is about as disastrous as it could get after he’s given an ancient blue beetle scarab to protect. Behind the scenes, CEO Victoria Kord (Sarandon) is building a one-man army corps, and this scarab is the magical item to making it happen. The scarab sees Jaime has the one and only host latching onto him gifting him with incredible powers and a metallic suit with pinchers.
Blue Beetle is now out on 4K, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital, which will allow a bigger audience to enjoy it who may have missed it while it was in theaters. Here’s what you can expect on the release
-Blue Beetle Generations: A 4-Part documentary on: Origins, Productions Design, In Full Flight, and A Hero’s World
-Nana Knows Best – featurette
-Scarab Vision – 2 part featurette: Initiation and Mastery
