Sharon Stone Joins DC's Blue Beetle As Victoria Kord
Sharon Stone ventures back into the DC universe for the first time since Catwoman.
Sharon Stone's first appearance in a DC film was in 2004's Catwoman. Now, almost 20 years later, she's returning to comic book movies to play the villain Victoria Kord in DC's Blue Beetle, The Wrap reports.
While it's safe to assume that Blue Beetle won't be a thing like Halle Berry's critically-panned Catwoman, her character Victoria does have one thing in common with her Catwoman character, Laurel Hedare: they're both villains created for their films. Victoria Kord shares a surname with DC Comics character Ted Kord, who played the second Blue Beetle, though any relation between the two is unknown at this time. The Wrap also reports that actor Raoul Max Trujillo (Mayans M.C.) will play the role of Carapax the Indestructible Man.
Blue Beetle stars Cobra Kai's Xolo Maridueña as the third Blue Beetle, teenager Jamie Reyes, who finds alien armor and uses it to take on the Blue Beetle name. The film is being directed by Angel Manuel Soto, with Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer writing. Harvey Guillen (What We Do In The Shadows) is also reportedly in talks to take on an unknown role in the film.
Stone can be seen most recently in Netflix's Murderville, and this April in HBO's The Flight Attendant Season 2. Blue Beetle is currently set to hit theaters on August 18, 2023.
