Warner Bros. has hired screenwriter Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer to write a Blue Beetle movie script centered on Jaime Reyes, according to TheWrap.

In comic books, Jaime Reyes wields an alien scarab that can form armor and weapons over his body. Reyes is the third Blue Beetle in comic books, after Dan Garrett and Ted Kord. The most recent iteration of Blue Beetle's ongoing series features Kord mentoring Reyes as a hero. 

Jaime Reyes would be DC’s first Latino character starring in their own solo superhero film. He previously appeared in live action on Smallville, played by Jaren Brandt Bartlett.

Producer Greg Berlanti was working on a Blue Beetle/Booster Gold film script in 2015, though as of March of this year it had shifted to focus solely on Booster Gold.

No projected release date for Blue Beetle was reported.
