According to a reaction by an entertainment page Pop Culture

“#BlueBeetle is my favorite post-Nolan DC film. It’s an action-packed, highly entertaining superhero story about family…& there’s nothing more important than family. The film is unique in that it lovingly & unabashedly shares the Reyes family’s Mexican culture.”

Despite the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike, Angel Manuel Soto’s directed Blue Beetle did not get affected. Recently, during an interview with the entertainment outlet Collider, Xolo Maridueña spoke about landing himself the protagonist in Blue Beetle. He said-

“That part of things, making everything canon, is a very exciting part of the process. I got to come in during pre-production and help carve out who Jaime is, as a character. I was really grateful that Angel gave me a lot of liberties, in terms of trusting me, as a performer. Jaime feels so honest.”

The Parenthood actor further added-

“Although we’re telling this larger-than-life story, it felt really easy, especially with the help of the family, to get those moments. Our rehearsal days weren’t getting the lines right. It was talking as a family. Once that part locked into place, the rest of the dominoes went perfectly”

With great critics and audience reception, Blue Beetle is undoubtedly about to be one of the biggest hits from the house of DC after the failure of Ezra Miller’s The Flash. 

Blue Beetle is set to hit theaters on August 18, 2023.
