Images from a special effects test for a live-action "Blue Beetle" have debuted online, courtesy of DC Comics' Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.
Johns just updated his official blog with the images below and the following note:
"I feel very fortunate to have been a part of Blue Beetle’s introduction way back in INFINITE CRISIS. I’ve said it before, but thanks to the BLUE BEETLE series launched by Keith Giffen and John Rogers with a great design by Cully Hamner, Jaime Reyes rocks. Great character, great story, great look. He’s already appeared in animation, had action figures and right now he’s on my computer in live-action glory. I have an early special effects test that has been floating around of what his armored scarab-suit could look like. This isn’t final. This isn’t greenlit. It’s only a test that was done. We still have a long way to go to see if we can get this off the ground and a lot of people to jump on board…but check out some stills."
Johns also says that the footage will be shown in full at this year's Comic-Con.
