Its plot synopsis reads, “Recent college grad Jaime Reyes 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. 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.”
You can watch the trailer below and see the movie only in theatres on August 18:
Which “DC Universe” are we talking about, here? The one James Gunn and Peter Safran are developing that David Zaslav is staking the future of Warner Bros on? Or the one that’s already been canceled and appears to be ground zero in an ongoing online war between Black Adam and
Captain MarvelShazam fans?
Well, there is that issue, though this does look like fun…
