DC’s Blue Beetle Gets Digital And Blu-Ray Release Date

No Comments

Blue Beetle is coming home very soon. Warner Bros. has announced that its latest DC movie will be arriving on Digital next week, with the Blu-ray release set for October. Fans will soon have the chance to watch the live-action debut of the fan-favorite hero from the comfort of home following the film’s run in theaters. The only question now is when it will be available to stream on Max (formerly HBO Max). 

Director Angel Manuel Soto’s Blue Beetle will be available via Digital retailers beginning Tuesday, September 26. On that date, viewers can either purchase or rent the film from their retailer of choice, including Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Apple TV, Google Play and others. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. will release the film on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD on October 31. Unfortunately, those who wish to pick up a physical copy will have to exercise a little bit of patience. 

Here is the synopsis for 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 Super Hero Blue Beetle.”

The film stars Xolo Maridueña (Cobra Kai) as Jaime Reyes. Originally, the movie was going to be released directly on HBO Max, before the streaming service changed its name. However, Warner Bros. decided it would be better suited as a theatrical release. On the flip side, the studio scrapped the Batgirl movie entirely, even though it had already been filmed. Whether or not this was the right decision is another question entirely. 

Blue Beetle has only made $120 million at the global box office to date against a budget said to be in the $100 million range. That makes it one of the lowest-grossing big-budget superhero movies in recent memory. Now, it will get a second shot at life on home video. In the end, the theatrical release may end up bringing more attention to the eventual streaming release. 

The cast also includes Adriana Barraza (Rambo: Last Blood, Thor), Damían Alcázar (Narcos, Narcos: Mexico), Elpidia Carrillo (Mayans M.C., Predator), Bruna Marquezine (Maldivas, God Save the King), Raoul Max Trujillo (Sicario, Mayans M.C.), Susan Sarandon (Monarch, Dead Man Walking), George Lopez (Rio, The Smurfs), Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories, Hocus Pocus 2) and Harvey Guillén (Harley Quinn)

Blue Beetle is in theaters now. Look for it on Digital next week.
