Los Angeles, Nov 30 (PTI) "Blue Beetle" film is in the works at DC and Warner Bros. The film is based on the Mexican-American comic book character Jaime Reyes. According to Variety, the studio has roped in Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer to pen the "Blue Beetle" screenplay. Zev Foreman is executive producing the film for Warner Bros. The original "Blue Beetle" character, which debuted in 1939, had superpowers derived from a sacred scarab. He first manifested himself as Dan Garrett, a police officer who fought crime with superpowers. The second version of Blue Beetle was Ted Kord, Garrett's student who continued costumed crime-fighting, but had no superpowers. Reyes was created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers, and Cully Hamner, and made his first appearance in a 2006 comic. The "Blue Beetle" series of comic books was launched in 2011 and cancelled after 17 issues in 2013. PTI SHD SHD
