An Awesome New Blue Beetle Poster Has Been Released
A new poster and two new motion posters for Blue Beetle have been released. It will be released on August 18th.
The embargo on The Flash has come down, and while some of the reactions have been more positive, others are more mixed. That film is coming up on its final week before its release date, so it's time for Warner Bros. to start turning its focus to Blue Beetle. This film is a little different from The Flash in that it feels like it isn't as tangled up in various universe shenanigans the way The Flash was. This film looks like it could stand a little more on its own. We still haven't heard that much, but the official media site did update with a new poster, and the official Twitter account shared two new motion posters as well. If there is a non-motion poster version of the first one released, it will be added to this post. UPDATE: Second new poster added, the other one is better.

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.
