Photos: Stills from Live Action “Blue Beetle” Test
Blue Beetle is one of the more obscure characters from the DC comics roster. To learn more about him click here. But in his latest incarnation he may be getting a live action television series. Here’s what comic creator Geoff Johns had to say about it on his 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.
And here are the stills he’s referring to:
Very cool. Can’t wait to see how this will look when the graphics have been tightened up and finalized. And word is we won’t have long to wait on that. Supposedly such footage will be debuted at this summer’s San Diego Comic Con.
