21 Jul – DC's upcoming superhero movie, "Blue Beetle" has recently wrapped up production.
The news was shared by director Angel Manuel Soto, who took to Instagram to announce the news with a photo of him sitting on the steps of an old house in Puerto Rico, writing, "It's a wrap."

The "Blue Beetle", which stars the "Cobra Kai" actor, tells the story of Jaime Reyes, who takes on the mantle of the Blue Beetle, and whose power comes from a scarab that grafted itself to the base of his spine, allowing him to have a suit of extraterrestrial armour that can enhance his speed and strength among others.
The upcoming movie, which co-stars Susan Sarandon, Harvey Guillén, Bruna Marquezine, and George Lopez among others, will be released in theatres 18 August 2023.
