That sound you hear is Warner Bros. taking a long hard look at how Marvel Studios has elevated so many second-string superheroes into box office sensations and muttering “Why can’t we do that?” And with a new Blue Beetle movie, it certainly sounds like they’re going to try to do just that. And this character feels like he could be a big deal – he has the crazy armor of Iron Man, the teenage angst of Spider-Man, and beneath the costume is a Latino kid, offering Warner Bros. a chance for special first for superhero cinema.
