BLUE BEETLE NEWS from DCE!! We have a live-action test of Jaime Reyes' scarab activating his suit. It. Is. Awesome

If I can break it out of the vault, I'll bring it to SDCC. LIVE ACTION BLUE BEETLE!!

Blue Beetle's going to appear in most of the Brave and the Bold's this year and we're hoping to develop a live-action show. Fingers crossed!

When asked for a comment, Jaime Reyes of El Paso, Texas declared himself

Hopefully they don't screw this one up... KEEP his family and friends as his support network that's for damned sure. Not grimdark, but not a pure sitcom. etc etc

I'm thinking they're shopping around for a series to replace Smallville soon. Blue Beetle would be awesome!

Ooh, this could either be really horrendous or incredibly amazing. At the very least, it gives me hope that we may yet see final rest for the lurching, decomposing, undead corpse of Smallville.

And the countdown to Jaime being renamed Jamie and being played by a 26 year old WASP with the show being relocated to the Midwest/Canada begins!

WASP? Dunno that one... If you mean he's probably going to be race-cast to somebody more white, you're probably right. =\ Which would be a damn crime, a good portion of who he is, is also what he is.

It will be awesome. The kid playing Milagro will not need a clip round the ear, and Paco will have his stick. There will be a loving supportive family that will never be killed off for cheap drama, and Khaji-Da will be cute and burbly, but not a mechanical-owl-animated-by-Harryhausen sort of way.

Did I leave my Blue Lantern Ring in the front room again?

I want to be excited...but then reality sets in and I assume the worst.

How much will be sacrificed to shoehorn this onto TV? How much will focus groups change Jaime to white...or worse, to be scripted white? How much will they change things to shoehorn BB into a weekly show, dropping all that makes Jaime unique or interesting.

My first expectation is that they'll eject everything that makes the character appealing to make him more generic and marketable. I hope I'm wrong. I would LOVE to be wrong. But pessimism seems more the likely reaction.

Scripted white would be really annoying, but if they have him like he was in the Wednesday Comics Teen Titans strip, that would be way worse.

I think Blue Beetle would be a perfect show.

You've got three potential villains in La Dama, the Reach and also Max Lord.

They could have Ted still alive and guest star. I'd have the scarab in a cargo plane being transported to a lab for study rather than on the blown up Rock of Eternity.

Expect him to only partially armor up except in sweeps to save CGI costs

Even better Max Lord is getting his major villian push in the comics and has TV's favourite super power. The ever easy to show telepathy.

I second what everyone's been saying that this could be really, really great, or really, really horrible.

Of course, my dream tv show would be a sitcom starring Scott and Barda, so, yeah.

My sister doesn't believe it and most likely won't until some offical statment with art and footage is released.

Then I reminded her that it was Geoff Johns.

I'll just say this'll be either really awesome or amazingly awkward, like everyone else says.

Live action Traci 13! Milagro! Alberto! Bianca! Paco! Brenda! La Dama!

I would love to see them do stuff with La Dama in the show, they never really had time to do anything with her and Jaime keeping her secret fro m Brenda since it was spilled by issue what 20?

No matter HOW it turns out, it will be interesting to watch. DC hasn't done a real high-profile live-action hero show since 'Wonder Woman', that I know of. (Of course, there's 'Smallville', but that's more like a retroactive reimagining of a character's past, rather than a straight representation of then.)

I will take this moment to point out that the creator of Blue Beetle, Mr. John Rogers, was also behind both the unaired TV pilot adaptation of Global Frequency and the current hit TV series Leverage.

So basically, if John Rogers himself gets attached to this live-action series, I will proceed to Squee loud enough to wake the dead. Until then, my optimism remains as cautious as ever.

From: [personal profile] wizardru
The problem with that is that John Rogers is STILL DOING Leverage. It's one of the reasons he stopped doing the comic. So the chance of him being involved is low to none, I'm guessing.

They had better not cast him with a white actor.

Otherwise I am moderately excited for this. I'm surprised they're talking about doing a TV series though~ would have sooner expected a film adaption.
