    More than the character deserves, but I wish it well. No one wins when this sort of movie bombs.

    What a downgrade! Latinos deserve better than a streaming movie

    Let's just say I don't trust WB to do with Blue Beetle what Marvel did with Ant Man

    Make a just okay superhero movie? Lol for real though I'd rather this movie be about Ted Kord.

    This is why I wish DC just gave Jaime another alias and permanently split him up from Ted. Jaime doesn’t need Ted and Ted doesn’t need Jaime. The two share nothing in common except the superhero name. That way whenever Jaime gets a project we wouldn’t see Ted Kord fans show up begging for him to be included. Jaime would be allowed to sink or swim on his own

    I can see that but I also get why they paired them up. Kord is brilliant and perfect for helping Jamie understand the tech some. Yes they can sub anyone in for Kord instead of making it a legacy character but I don't mind the connection. I also think Jamie is a much more interesting Blue Beetle then Kord. He's almost like Venom meets Ironman with the Kid angle. Opposed to Kord who outside of his relationship with Booster I've found quite boring.

    My issue is the Budget. Are they still gonna spend movie money like Disney+ on these HBOmax originals? I mean if they pay to do Green Lanrern Corp right I'm sure Batwoman,Blue Beetle, and Static Shock will be fine

    I'm concerned about the budget for 10 episodes but i'm mostly concerned about Marc Guggenheim as co-showrunner for the Green Lantern and the show being produced by Berlanti.

    How successful movies like Godzilla vs Kong and Mortal Kombat have been going straight to streaming I don't see that as a downgrade at all. Films don't need a theater to have an impact.

    Society is in a new era for movies. Being a made for stream movie is not like saying "made for TV movie" even 10 years ago.

    Yeah, I heard those 2 outdid expectations. Maybe the same can happen for Blue Beetle
