The new feature Movie from DC, which is successful with the audience, for the first time introduces a Latin American superhero into the plot, which, in addition to the presence of Brazilian Bruna Marquezine in the cast, should also appeal to action fans.
Blue Beetle movie can be bought or rented from this Tuesday on the Amazon Prime Video (39,90 R) and Google Play Moviees (49,90 R R) platforms. The US production, which launched in August this year, is based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Directed by Angel Manuel Soto and with Xolo Maridueña and Bruna Marquezine in the cast, the plot follows Jaime Reyes, a young man who finds an alien artifact that can give him unpredictable powers.
With just over two hours of screen time, the action movie has a screenplay by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer and is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is also worth remembering that the work on digital platforms will include almost three hours of additional content, including exclusive interviews, making-of and backstage content.

Plot of Blue Beetle
The plot follows Jaime Reyes (Maridueña), a young man who, after returning to his parents’ house at the end of his studies, is directionless in life. He is looking for his purpose in the world, and also a job. However, after receiving a box of Jenny Kord( Bruna Marquezine), he finds an ancient alien biotech relic known as a scarab. Jaime then sees how his life is completely changed, as the artifact gives him super-strong armor in addition to countless powers.
