‘Blue Beetle’ Animated Series in the Works at DC Studios


Warner Bros. Animation and DC Studios are looking to continue telling Blue Beetle stories via an animated series currently in development, Deadline is reporting. Miguel Puga (The Casagrandes) has been working on the project since early this year and will serve as the project’s showrunner and director with Cristian Martinez (Women of the MovementGood Trouble) set as writer.


Angel Manuel Soto and Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, director and screenwriter of the 2023 film, respectively, will executive produce alongside John Rikard who served in the same capacity on the film. Galen Vaisman, who was an EP on the film, will oversee the animated TV series for DC Studios. Many things are still in flux including contracts for any main cast; however, many reportedly have been approached and DC has received a positive response regarding returns. The animated series will reportedly build on the movie, developed under DC Studios’ previous regime, but will divert from telling the same story.


Instead, the show will create its own story which, if a success, could potentially lead to a return to the big screen for the giant blue bug portrayed by Xolo Maridueña, who’s movie debut was not a success.
