The first look at new DC movie Blue Beetle doesn't disappoint, with Xolo Maridueña looking like a perfect choice for Jaime Reyes 

Jaime Reyes is coming to the DCEU, and the character’s striking Blue Beetle costume has never looked better! Warner Bros. 

has been putting a lot behind their upcoming Blue Beetle movie, and it’s definitely showing in the first look at the elaborate costume in live action. 

Xolo Maridueña (Cobra Kai) plays Jaime Reyes, a teenager from El Paso, TX who finds an alien “scarab” that bonds with him, 

manifests a suit of high tech armor, and grants him super powers. Created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers, and Cully Hamner during DC’s Infinite Crisis event back in 2006,  

Blue Beetle’s sleek, almost Tokusatsu-influenced design seems like it was destined for the screen almost from its inception. 

But despite appearing in numerous DC animated projects (notably Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Young Justice), 

Beetle’s only live action appearance so far came in Smallville season 10, episode 18,  

Booster” where he was unfortunately saddled with a weirdly bulky look that didn’t manage to capture the coolness of the comics look.
