He portrays Jaime Reyes within the new superhero film. “Jaime Reyes all of the sudden finds himself in possession of an historic relic of alien biotechnology known as the Scarab,” reads the synopsis. “When the Scarab chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he’s bestowed with an unbelievable go well with of armor that’s able to extraordinary and unpredictable powers, ceaselessly altering his future as he turns into the superhero Blue Beetle.”
When requested if he felt stress to have his new film be a field workplace hit after the latest industrial failures of DC films like Black Adam, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and The Flash, Maridueña responded, “I’m certain for Warner Bros., there’s stress…that sounded a bit of snarky.”
“Sure, after all, I would like this to be the most important film of all time. And I actually really feel like it’s a worldwide film. I believe it must be a field workplace smash, however on the similar time, there’s field workplace smashes that aren’t the very best [movies], and vice versa. I don’t need to be a prisoner to the numbers.”
