Blue Beetle Filmmakers Asked For Two Extra Days Of Filming, But WB Said No – /Film

While the budget for “Blue Beetle” has yet to be revealed, the movie was originally supposed to go straight to HBO Max (which is now just called Max). However, the heads of Warner Bros. liked the film enough to opt to give it a theatrical release, which seemed to say a lot about its quality. By comparison, the studio’s $90 million “Batgirl” movie was scrapped entirely after production was completed.

It may be that Warner Bros. feels that the film is fine as it is and that reshoots are not necessary. It may also be that they are done investing in anything not directly related to “Aquaman” or the new DC Universe. In any case, it sounds a lot like the DCEU, as we knew it was destined for a messy ending. Granted, this entire cinematic universe was always pretty messed up, starting with the still notoriously divisive “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” to the issue that was “Justice League” and everything that followed. For better or worse, it’s time to move on.

“Cobra Kai” newcomer Xolo Maridueña stars in “Blue Beetle” as Jamie Reyes, aka Blue Beetle, with Adriana Barraza (“Thor”), Damían Alcázar (“Narcos: Mexico”), Elpidia Carrillo (“Mayans MC”), Bruna Marquezine (“God Save the King”), Raoul Max Trujillo (“Sicario”), Susan Sarandon (“Thelma & Louise”), George Lopez (“Rio”), Belissa Escobedo (“Hocus Pocus 2” ). , and Harvey Guillén (“What We Do in the Shadows”) round out the set.

“Blue Beetle” will hit theaters on August 18, 2023.
