The film, featuring the Jaime Reyes version of the Beetle, would be the first Latino DC hero to be the featured character on the big screen. Now there is some forward movement in direction, being that the film has now got a director: Angel Manuel Soto.
Soto most recently directed Charm City Kings, which was streamed on HBO Max. The Reyes version of the Blue Beetle appeared in several animated fare, and also in live-action in the Smallville show in 2011. No launch date was announced for the film.
