Blue Beetle tickets are available for pre-order through Fandango ahead of DC’s next cinematic superhero adventure!
It’s almost time for Jaime Reyes to scuttle onto the silver screen in DC’s Blue Beetle! While promotional engagements for the film have their wings clipped because of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, Fandango wants superhero fans to know that Blue Beetle tickets are available for pre-order!
Blue Beetle is DC’s second-to-last superhero film before James Gunn and Peter Safran reset aspects of the DCEU, ushering in a new era of superheroics and anticipated character debuts. Angel Manuel Soto’s Blue Beetle introduces Jaime Reyes, DC’s first solo superhero film with a Latino lead. Many DC fans have expressed excitement about the film, especially after the collected release of Blue Beetle: Graduation Day, a limited comic book series from writer Josh Trujillo and artist Adrian Gutierrez.
Here’s the official synopsis for Blue Beetle: Graduation Day via Penguin Random House:
Jaime Reyes has a lot to juggle. Whether it’s his finals for senior year or a new villain tearing up El Paso, Jaime is always torn between two worlds. But when those worlds come crashing together at his high school graduation, nothing will ever be the same.
Jaime Reyes is the hero Blue Beetle, bonded to a sentient alien artifact called a scarab that gives him high-tech armor. He’s also a high school senior about to graduate! When a message from alien civilization the Reach bombards Jaime’s scarab on graduation day, he’s literally grounded by the Justice League. And as if that weren’t enough to worry about, Jaime’s parents and friends are pressuring him about his next steps in life.
Jaime arrives in Palmera City to spend a gap year working in his tias’ restaurant, but he’s got other things on his mind– like who is the mysterious new Yellow Beetle he saw on the news? How are they connected to the Reach message that bombarded his scarab? And what’s hidden here on Earth that’s drawing the Reach back?
Can Jaime find balance in his life and rise to become a true hero, or will this super-heroing bring the full might of the Justice League down on him?
Blue Beetle stars Xolo Maridueña as Jamie Reyes, a recent college grad who returns home full of aspirations for his future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it. “As he searches to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab,” reads the official Blue Beetle synopsis. “When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the Super Hero Blue Beetle.”
In addition to Xolo Maridueña (Cobra Kai), Blue Beetle also stars Adriana Barraza (Rambo: Last Blood) as Jaime’s grandmother, Nana, Damían Alcázar (Narcos: Mexico) as his father, Elpidia Carrillo (Mayans M.C.) as his mother, Bruna Marquezine (God Save the King) as Jenny Kord, Raoul Max Trujillo (Sicario) as Carapax, with Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking) as Victoria Kord, and George Lopez (Rio) as Jaime’s Uncle Rudy. The film also stars Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories) as Jaime’s sister, Milagro, and Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) as Dr. Sanchez. Angel Manuel Soto (Charm City Kings) directed Blue Beetle from a Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer (Miss Bala) screenplay.
