THE UNIVERSE HAS SENT YOU A GIFT
THE FIRST EVER “BLUE BEETLE” GLOBAL MERCHANDISE COLLECTION INSPIRED BY THE DC SUPER HERO’S FIRST TIME ON THE BIG SCREEN ARRIVES
What if the Scarab chose you to save the world? Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products (WBDGCP) and DC invite everyone into the world of comic book fan-favorite, Blue Beetle, with a new merchandise collection inspired by the upcoming action adventure from Warner Bros. Pictures. In “Blue Beetle,” recent college grad Jaime Reyes (Xolo Maridueña) 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 DC Super Hero Blue Beetle. Fans will be able to make their own symbiotic connection with a wide range of “Blue Beetle” products from global partners like Funko, Spin Master, McFarlane Toys, and more. “Blue Beetle” zooms into North American theaters August 18.
“Blue Beetle’s first-ever feature film inspired our team to develop a varied, cross-category collection that brings the vibrant visuals, humor, action and heart of the film into the lives of fans around the world,” said Pam Lifford, President, Warner Bros. Discovery Global Brands, Franchises, and Experiences. “This is an incredible opportunity for us to introduce the DC Super Hero to more fans and to extend the storytelling so they can bring Blue Beetle, and Jaime’s family and story, to life for themselves.”
