Get ready to meet DC’s latest on-screen hero. Warner Bros. just dropped the trailer for Blue Beetle. Check it out below:

In Blue Beetle, recent college grad Jaime Reyes returns home full of aspirations for his future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it. As he searches to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab. When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the superhero Blue Beetle.

Xolo Maridueña stars as Jaime/Blue Beetle. The cast also includes Adriana Barraza (Rambo: Last Blood, Thor) as Jaime’s grandmother, Nana; Damían Alcázar (Narcos franchise) as his father; Elpidia Carrillo (Mayans M.C., the Predator films) as his mother; Bruna Marquezine (Maldivas, God Save the King) as Jenny Kord; Raoul Max Trujillo (the Sicario films, Mayans M.C.) as Carapax; Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking) as Victoria Kord; George Lopez (the Rio and Smurf franchises) as Jaime’s Uncle Rudy; Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories, Hocus Pocus 2) as Jaime’s sister Milagro; and Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) as Dr. Sanchez.

Angel Manuel Soto directs the film. It was originally slated for release on HBO Max, but will now get a theatrical release this summer. Blue Beetle will also be incorporated into the “new” DC universe overseen by Peter Safran and James Gunn.
