Xolo Maridueña suits up in jaw-dropping Blue Beetle set photos

Xolo Maridueña dons the Blue Beetle suit in the first set photos for the upcoming DC movie.

There are certainly a lot of interesting properties on the DC movie horizon. From The Flash to Batgirl, to this year’s Shazam: Fury of the Gods, there is without a doubt a lot to look forward to for DC fans.

One of the most exciting properties is the upcoming Blue Beetle movie. Starring Xolo Maridueña in the title role, it is directed by Angel Manuel Soto and is expected to be part of the DC Extended Universe. It was initially going to be a HBO Max-exclusive (like Batgirl) but it was recently confirmed that it would be getting a theatrical release instead.

With Blue Beetle set for release on August 18, 2023, production is now underway in Atlanta, Georgia. As a result, photos have surfaced online, which already reveal the first look at the Cobra Kai star (Maridueña) in costume.

Set photos (which can be viewed over here on Just Jared) have revealed the first look at Xolo Maridueña in full costume, suited up as the titular hero of Blue Beetle.

You don’t have to look hard to see that the DCEU production is going for an incredibly comic-accurate look, and quite frankly, it looks incredible.

The film also features Bruna Marquezine, Belissa Escobedo, George Lopez, Adriana Barraza, Elpidia Carrillo, Damián Alcázar, Susan Sarandon, Raoul Trujillo, and Harvey Guillén. Sarandon made headlines when it was revealed that she would be playing the villain of the piece.
