Blue Beetle: The New Hope For DC’s Cinematic Future

After back to back flops at the box office, finally it seems like Blue Beetle might change everything for the DC Studios, and as per various updates, the future of this hero is bright.

Cobra Kai’s Xolo Maridueña is the first lead DC Latino superhero as Jaime and is a perfect choice for this character so far.

In the movie, he is a reluctant hero thrown into an intergalactic conflict by an all-powerful Scarab that chooses him as its next host.

The intense yet family-oriented comedy is a shift away from the multiversal stories of recent DC box office disappointments like Shazam! Fury of the Gods and The Flash, which seems to be one reason why it’s resonating with critics thus far.

The Unexpected Reviews For Blue Beetle !!

Now since the movie has been released world wide (except some countries), reviews are now available on all over the internet. Luckily, this time, the reviews are shocking the studio as well.

2023 is not proving to be a good year for various Super heroes based movies. Giants like Disney, Marvel and DC are all suffering from heavy loss of money on the box office, but Blue Beetle is proving to be a game changer.

The movie has received the highest Rotten Tomatoes score for a DC movie this year. It has notched an impressive 83% critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes as of this writing which is really impressive.

This score is also quite a cut above The Flash and Shazam 2‘s underwhelming scores of 64% and 49%, respectively, which has made a bad impact on the reputation of DC Studios.

The film also ranks well above Black Adam’s 39% on Rotten Tomatoes and slightly under The Suicide Squad’s 90% approval among critics.

Critics Are Satisfied With The Movie !!

Not only on Rotten Tomatoes, but the movie is also receiving quite impressive words from various trusted authorities and reviewers !!

Movie World Network‘s own review called Blue Beetle “an unexpectedly impressive movie to drop a new hero in a perfect way !!“. And not only us, but various other networks are also praising the movie.

Digital Spy :

An entertaining debut for DC’s newest superhero !! There is a future for this superhero and, fortunately, it leaves you wanting to see more.

The Guardian :

There’s a perkiness that’s hard to resist and a base-level competency that’s hard not to appreciate, a small beam of blue light in an otherwise dark time for superheroes !!

Total Film :

Stand down the undertaker: this spirited outlier shows there’s life in the old DCEU yet. Over to you, Aquaman 2.

TheWrap :

A self-contained and smartly crafted film that ranks among the DCEU’s very best. Even though, admittedly, that doesn’t say nearly as much as it ought to !!

So all these ratings and reviews are already enough to know about the potential of this newely dropped DC Superhero. The best part of all these reviews is that none of them has mentioned anything regarding the loopholes, which is quite impressive.

What Is The Plot Of Blue Beetle ?

According to the movie’s official synopsis, Jaime Reyes is the third but most popular Blue Beetle, and the film will serve as an origin story for the character.

When Jaime goes to apply for a job at Kord Industries, he suddenly finds himself in possession of the Scarab. This ancient relic of alien technology chooses Jaime to be its host and bonds with him.

This gives him a suit of armor capable of incredible abilities and pushes him toward being a superhero. When these new powers put Jaime’s family in danger and in the crosshair of Carapax, the Indestructible Man, he has to choose between this newfound responsibility and the old life he wishes he never left.

However, in the comics, Jaime Reyes finds the Scarab after it is flung to his hometown of El Paso, Texas, from the exploding Rock of Eternity. After Jaime discovers the scarab, it fuses to his spine while he is sleeping.

Jaime must likely find a way to work with the Scarab in order to protect himself and his mind from the strange technology. But this is likely where the film story will part from the comic book.

If we can draw any conclusions from the cast list, Victoria Kord will probably be aware of the scarab and send the powerful Carapax to retrieve it.
