"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
When Geoff Johns tweeted about a potential live-action Blue Beetle sequence, noting they had an “awesome” live-action test of the suit activating, fans of Jaime Reyes got pretty excited. Well, hold on to your scarab, because over on the Source blog, Johns posts pictures of the whole sequence. Here are a couple:
“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,” Johns wrote.
Head over to the Source to check the rest of the sequence out. And what do you think of this as a potential replacement for Smallville, which ends next season? Or would it make a better film?
