Prepare yourselves as we pull back the curtain on DC's latest superhero film, Blue Beetle. We're thrilled to be chatting with Angel Manuel Soto, the director, and Gareth Dunnett- Alcocer, the writer, who bring their unique insights to the table. They're here to talk about our main character, Jaime Reyes, a college grad turned superhero, the significance of a Latino superhero, and the nostalgia of the early Blue Beetle comics. To top it all off, Gareth shares his inspiring journey from dreaming of writing for DC as an 11 year old, to actually seeing his dream come true.
We also sit down with producers John Rickard and Zev Foreman to discuss the narrative of Blue Beetle and how Jaime's journey sets this film apart from other superhero movies. John talks about Jaime’s reluctance to be a hero, while Zev dives into the underlying themes of family and relationships that make this story special. They also offer an inside look at the challenging world of film production and touch on the issues surrounding character rights.
