Behind the scenes photos of Xolo Maridueña’s comics-accurate costume for the Blue Beetle film have been released by Just Jared Jr.
Maridueña is playing the Jamie Reyes version of the Blue Beetle character in the film and the photos show him both with and without the Blue Beetle helmet. The costume appears to be very accurate to the comics although looks rubbery. This will probably be fixed through CGI as in the comics the suit can transform into any weapon that is needed. It is also missing the backpack which will also most likely be added in post.
Directed by Angel Manuel Soto and written by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, the film is released on 19th August 2023.
