‘Blue Beetle’ Promo Art Reveals New Look At Suit
As the first Latin-led DC superhero film, Blue Beetle is already an exciting concept on paper. However, there is nothing quite like getting a sneak peek at the film, which features Xolo Maridueña as Jaime Reyes. Courtesy of the Blue Beetle Updates Twitter account, promotional art featuring the titular superhero has surfaced online.
Although set photos gave fans their first look at Blue Beetle’s comic-accurate get-up, the latest leak provides a slightly more official image from the highly-anticipated film. The promo piece is reminiscent of the neon-lit Palmera city, a wholly original location created for the upcoming DC project. There is no indication that the image will be released officially anytime soon, but expect marketing to ramp up for the film approaching the Fall.
Well all I can share is this, credit to @FlashFilmNews for this. https://t.co/dIQiRQdeKu pic.twitter.com/v0XC6rKkqn
