Screen Test for Live Action ‘Blue Beetle’ Leaves Us Psyched for San Diego
As a huge fan of Jaime Reyes as Blue Beetle who has been mourning the cancellation of his ongoing series for months, I was pretty excited to hear Geoff Johns mention on Twitter that there might be more in store for Jaime, and even more excited when he recently posted stills from a screen test of a live-action Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle on DC’s Source blog:
I feel very fortunate to have been a part of Blue Beetle’s introduction way back in INFINITE CRISIS. I’ve said it before, but thanks to the BLUE BEETLE series launched by Keith Giffen and John Rogers with a great design by Cully Hamner, Jaime Reyes rocks. Great character, great story, great look. He’s already appeared in animation, had action figures and right now he’s on my computer in live-action glory. I have an early special effects test that has been floating around of what his armored scarab-suit could look like. This isn’t final. This isn’t greenlit. It’s only a test that was done. We still have a long way to go to see if we can get this off the ground and a lot of people to jump on board…but check out some stills.
We’ve got all the stills, naturally, but if you’d like to see how they look in motion you can see a few seconds in an FX reel after the jump around the 50 second mark. The full screen test will be making its debut at DC panels at Comic-Con, and we’ll be there with bells on.
