Blue Beetle Trailer Breakdown (Easter Eggs & New DCU Connection): The long-awaited trailer for the upcoming DC film Blue Beetle has finally been released.
The Blue Beetle movie trailer kicks off with Xolo Maridueña, our dashing protagonist, Jaime Reyes. This guy wasn’t around until 2006, created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers, and Cully Hamner.
In the comics, Jaime’s heroic escapades all go down in El Paso, Texas. But guess what? The movie’s decided to mix things up by introducing a brand spanking new fictional city called Palmera.
In the Blue Beetle movie, we’ll see our hero, Jaime, start out in the hotel industry before being pulled into the orbit of Kord Industries.
Hold on to your burgers, folks, because this is a DC Comics Easter egg you won’t want to miss! In the Blue Beetle movie, Jaime is entrusted with a super important package that he must keep safe at all costs.
Inside the seemingly harmless Big Belly Burger box lies an alien scarab that fuses with Jaime’s spine, morphing him into the incredible Blue Beetle.
It’s no wonder that there are some shady characters out there who are itching to get their grubby little paws on it. Enter Victoria Kord, played by none other than Susan Sarandon in the movie.
let me tell you about the movie’s other villain, played by the talented Raoul Max Trujillo! He’s portraying the notorious Conrad Carapax, a mercenary with a long and storied history in the Blue Beetle comics.
