Blue Beetle delivered a solid DC superhero adventure with Jaime Reyes’ origin story, and you can now watch the beginning of the film on YouTube.
If you missed Ángel Manuel Soto’s Blue Beetle in theaters, don’t hesitate to give the latest DC Studios film a shot. Exclusively on Warner Bros. Entertainment’s channel check out the first 10 minutes of the stellar action flick starring Cobra Kai’s Xolo Maridueña as Jaime, a role he was born to play. With the support of his close-knit family (including George Lopez as his hilariously wacky techie uncle), Jaime’s journey to becoming the Blue Beetle is filled with heart and endearing characters.
Here’s the film’s opening, which also introduces Susan Sarandon as antagonist Victoria Kord and Harvey Guillén as her minion as she schemes to attain the power of the Beetle.
