A new report from The Wrap has revealed that a director Angel Manuel Soto has been hired for the upcoming Blue Beetle movie from Warner Bros. and DC Films. Filming is also said to be aiming for the fall.
Charm City Kings director Angel Manuel Soto is set to direct Blue Beetle, DC Films and Warner Bros.’ first superhero movie starring a Latino character, individuals with knowledge of the project exclusively tells TheWrap.
The big step will be finding an actor to play Jaime Reyes aka Blue Beetle.
Blue Beetle won’t be the only Latinx superhero Warner Bros. is introducing as Sasha Calle was recently cast as Supergirl for their Flash film, there is an expectation that Sasha could end up leading the solo film they’ve been developing at the studio with screenwriter Oren Uziel working on a script. We’ll likely see Sasha’s Supergirl make her big screen debut before Blue Beetle.
