Blue Beetle Trailer review, How Jaime Reyes gets powers in Blue Beetle

The Blue Beetle trailer got out now and shows the first look of the actor Xolo Maridueña as Jaime Reyes aka the Blue Beetle a Mexican-American teenage boy who gets a blue beetle scarab that works as a suit for him and gives him powers.

Talking about the trailer reveals a lot of things such as his powers and first looks, The background music of this trailer is so energizing and mighty like you can feel the intensity deep inside you, The first look of Blue Beetle is also superb, And his suit up scenes are awesome

We see that Jaime Reyes recently graduated from his college and returning back his home, He is struggling to find a purpose in his life, While he gets his hands on the Blue Bettle scarab, Which gives him powers.

We also see that Jaime is struggling to coordinate with the blue beetle scarab, and he makes a lot of moves that are dangerous for other people, like cutting a bus in half

It's not yet confirmed whether it's going to be part of the new DC universe or not, But coming at the visuals of the movie they look stunning also the shot where the blue beetle is in space and looking toward the sun is gorgeous While reviewing the trailer, It is also noticeable that the Blue beetle scarab is attached on the back of Jamie it's easily notable that he can fly with his wings and the thrust generated by the scarab.

Watching the trailer you can clearly notice that his family is all scared of seeing the beetle on Jamie, And also director did a great job showing a Latino family and their chemistry, For a brief moment of time we see the villain of the movie Victoria Kord, she is saying that "The scarab chose you but it belongs to me" which means that she is going all in to take back the scarab from Jaime Reyes.

The trailer shows his Blue Armor suit which looks pretty amazing, It attaches to his spine and generates from there making armor for the whole of his Body, It also quotes that "Whatever you can imagine I can create" this is also same as comics where Blue Bettle can create anything with his suit and he creates a sword

Concluding the review I can say that the trailer was fun and sets high hopes for the Blue Bettle movie and the future of DC, We could see him collaborating with Flash or any other superhero in  DC

How Jaime Reyes gets powers in Blue Beetle

Jamie Reyes's powers come from Blue Bettle scarab, Blue Bettle scarab used to be the weapon of an intergalactic army called The Reach, Bule Bettle scarab has its own intelligence.

The Reach used Blue Bettle scarab as a weapon to conquer several plants, They would deploy some blue beetle scarabs on a planet which would take control of the people living on it and then they become the member of reach, But one day a Blue Beetle scarab comes to Earth and gets attached on the body of  Jaime Reyes.

But instead of Blue Bettle controlling Jamie, Jamie starts taking control of the scarab. At first, they don't coordinate correctly but after some time they start coordinating with each other and help to fight crime later on he also joins Teen Titans.

Blue Bettle scarab attaches to the back of his host and it grows from there, Blue Beetle creates weaponry as per the advice of his host like - a shield, energy blaster, canon, sword, etc. But sometimes they have conflict over who is right while making a decision.

Loki season 2 episode 1 ending and post credit explained

Loki season 2 has started pretty smoothly already raising the bar for the upcoming Marvel TV series, So from the start to the end of the episode we see that Mobius O.B and Loki are constantly trying to retract Loki from the timeline which they do at the end of the episode. And we see a very special scene in the post-credits. At the end of the episode, we see that Loki is trying to find a pruning stick to Prune himself, He time slips into the future and searches for a Prune stick but he isn't able to find one, when Loki loses hope of getting pruned then we see Sylvie, and Loki suddenly gets pruned, So the question arises Who pruned Loki at the end of Episode One?
