DC’s New Blue Beetle Movie Release Date Confirmed
There is a lot of uncertainty about the future of HBO Max and live-action DC films. For example, Batgirl was canceled by Warner Bros. Despite being nearly finished with production because the company felt it was too big for HBO Max and too small for theaters.
There has been plenty of talk from executives about reshaping the DC universe moving forward, and fans have been worried that certain projects that don’t feature characters like Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman could be in trouble. Fortunately, it appears Blue Beetle is still on the right track.
Blue Beetle is an interesting project because it has a lead character that is interesting, and the cast is also good. Plus, the film received a promotion during production. The movie was supposed to be released on HBO Max, but Warner Bros. changed their minds and decided to release it in theaters instead.
