Yesterday we posted how Geoff Johns Tweeted about a possible live-action Blue Beetle TV show. He mentioned that there was a chance of test images going up. Today, he did post images on DC's The Source.
Keep in mind the series is in development. It has not been greenlit yet (or is that greenlighted?). These are just a screen test of what we could expect. These are not final images but you have to admit they look really cool. He says they will bring the short clip to San Diego Comic-Con and will play it at as many DC panels as possible to give everyone a chance to see it.
Want to see the rest of the images?
 == TEASER ==

Again, wow! Thanks for sharing, Geoff!

Cool but I'm tired of stuff with Blue Beetle.

I'd have much rather had Ted Kord Blue Beetle.

Is it me or does this remind anyone else of Guyver?
Also I would much rather a Ted Kord Blue Bettle movie.

they shouldve gone with the Ted Kord BB or the old pulp action BB from the old time radio show. i would much rather see another cop show or a businessman / scientist show than see another kid having super powers show.

no way... this looks too fake. I'd believe it if it was a cartoon
Blue Beatle = DC's answer to the guyver : D

No. No I would not. Looks worse than Smallville.

Reminds me of the look of another Coleopterabased show from the 90's.

Big Bad Bettleborgs anyone?(yes I know the character was around alot longer than the show.)

if these images are not final product then it has potential.
#17 Posted by Mutant X (1584 posts) - - Show Bio

That looks awesome! Blue Beetle deserves his own show!

#18 Posted by UrmanitaRules (87 posts) - - Show Bio

This show could easily be the next Smallville. And while I do think Jaime Reyes is a good choice for the main Blue Beetle, they should have Ted Kord in the show as the retired Blue Beetle and mentoring Jaime on using the scarab. And it would also be interesting for Jaime to appear on Smallville, that way it could bridge the two shows and familiar faces like Oliver and the rest of the Justice League or Society could appear to lend Jaime a hand once in a while (sorry, Clark, but once Smallville's over, you need to embrace your destiny and move on).

This looks pretty good for a preview.

#20 Posted by Icon (2239 posts) - - Show Bio

Geoff Johns thinks this looks awesome? Well, hopefully it will look a lot better when they are done (if they actually go ahead with the show). This is just test footage after all.

#21 Posted by dr.x (954 posts) - - Show Bio
no,no  Blue  Beetle is cool they were a  bad power rangers rip off which make them lame
#22 Posted by RedK (2541 posts) - - Show Bio
@UrmanitaRules:  everything you just said except if he was doing across over with smallville have them older and more established seeing as they were supposed to be heroes way before Jamie got the scarab
#23 Posted by The_Martian (37399 posts) - - Show Bio

I realize these are not final images, but I'm getting a very power rangers feel to this.

If they did they would have to have Booster Gold in it.

Honestly, these effects look consistent with the CGI from the 90's Goosebumps TV show. I'm REALLY hoping this is before they have added their final touches because this not at all what I was hoping or suspecting.

#27 Posted by MrCipher (277 posts) - - Show Bio
I agree completely.
#28 Posted by Bearded Justice (788 posts) - - Show Bio

bring back Ted!!  maybe he'll still be alive in this show or something.  he could be a mentor and suit up for action every now and then

The face is a bit creepy to me.

#32 Posted by Question08 (49 posts) - - Show Bio

Complaints about test footage? Yup, this is the internet I know.
#33 Posted by UrmanitaRules (87 posts) - - Show Bio
@Bearded Justice:  That's what I said, but I totally agree with you on Ted Kord in the show and being a mentor
#34 Posted by jamdown (301 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow this looks better than i thought i think im going to actually watch this

i think that could really work and would easily warrant me tuning in
#36 Posted by BulletStorm (3 posts) - - Show Bio

Like Blue Beetle - but even for test footage this stuff looks WAY 90's.

#37 Posted by buns134 (337 posts) - - Show Bio

i kindof like the last 1
#38 Posted by longbowhunter (8837 posts) - - Show Bio

Good or bad more than likely I'll watch it anyway. Love Ted Kord, but dig Jaime too.
#39 Posted by rlmay3 (273 posts) - - Show Bio
Despite how rough these test shots are, I do like how they interpreted the suit in the last shot. 
@longbowhunter: Agreed, I'd still watch it, too, haha.
#40 Posted by doordoor123 (3810 posts) - - Show Bio

You were right at "Greenlit"
That said, im excited for this and im hoping there can be some synergizing with the comics in this. Id love to know more background of the scarab.

#41 Posted by grimreaper1980 (677 posts) - - Show Bio

he needs to appear on smallville

#42 Posted by Primmaster64 (21663 posts) - - Show Bio

#43 Edited by MetatronDaDon (110 posts) - - Show Bio

#46 Posted by Bruce Vain (1833 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow very cool 
This Blue Beetle and these images just remind me of the Guyver.
#47 Posted by Pez85 (208 posts) - - Show Bio
Yes! I'm so glad someone else picked up on that. That's the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the final image.
#48 Posted by AMP - Seeker of Lost Knowledge (1362 posts) - - Show Bio
@Nyogtha: That was one of my childhood classics.
Despite the Big Blue getting his own show, it sounds more like that idea for Smallville.

put him on as a cameo on smallville, too soon for another DC live action show 
remember Birds of Prey, and the failed Aquaman/GGreen Arrow spin offs
not as apeealing to mainstream as superman, i mean who is blue beetle's adversary--- everyone knows lex luthor!
