Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment are developing a movie based on comic book character, the Blue Beetle.

According to The Wrap, Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer is being lined up to write the screenplay, which will focus on Jamie Reyes – a Mexican-American teenager with a suit of extraterrestrial armour. 

No release date has been given for Blue Beetle, but don’t expect the project to arrive any time before mid-2020. Over the next year (and a bit), Warner Bros. Pictures has a packed line-up of comic book movies, including Aquaman (due out in December), Shazam! and The Joker (due in 2019) and Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (due Feb 2020) and Wonder Woman 1984 (June 2020).
