Witness The Moment Everything Changes In New Blue Beetle Clip

Blue Beetle hits theaters August 18.


DC Studios and Warner Bros. Pictures have unveiled a new clip from the highly anticipated movie Blue Beetle. Blue Beetle hits theaters August 18.

The movie traces Jaime Reyes' story--a college graduate who returns to Palmera City and unexpectedly becomes host to an ancient alien relic, the Scarab. This relic grants him a powerful exoskeleton, turning him into the formidable superhero, Blue Beetle. In the new one-minute clip, we witness a crucial Reyes family moment: Following what appears to be a cheerful fast-food meal and a gift of car keys, Jaime's hands instead land on the mysterious Blue Beetle scarab. This sets the stage for a family united in his heroic journey.
