See Five Seconds Of <em>The Blue Beetle</em> Test Footage

As part of this SFX demo showreel, you can see about 5 seconds of the proposed live action Blue Beetle tv show that Geoff Johns will be brining to Comic Con..

The very brief glimpse is about 50 seconds in, after the Chipmunks! Theres also some other cool stuff, worth watching the whole thing anyway.

So, brief I know, and in fairness, its really just getting to see the pictures from yesterday in motion, the special effects haven't been tidied up at all. Still, I do think this has potential just from that..although maybe I'm just hoping it does. WHAT WAS WRONG WITH USING TED KORD!..sorry:)

That's cool as Hell. I prefer Ted Kord but his abilities were nowhere near as cool as the kids, as far as being The Blue Beetle goes.

Looks ok to me. I still don't like that maybe this is aiming for teens. I don't think that another Smallville is needed, I never liked that show. But that's just my opinion.

Looks o.k., And don't worry, we could hopefully get a Ted Kord reference in. Like a recreating of Maxwell Lord shooting him.

i prefer to see booster gold but they are going with jaime reyes because he is young and mexican. the mexican population is huge as well as the young market. this probably will be like a young peter parker struggling with school acne family and girls.

i prefer to see an aquaman or a booster gold show.
RorMachine - 6/17/2010, 7:17 PM
Ah I'm just an old git that prefers what I know! I never really read much of Reyes as Beetle. But if its good its good.
AngelAragiel - 6/17/2010, 7:19 PM
Yeah explode the Mexican market, it's wide. And I apologize for writing the next lines: Mexico 2-0 France. Arriba México. Sorry for people who doesn't want to hear anything about world cup.
RorMachine - 6/17/2010, 7:22 PM
Oh yeah, I forgot! What a delightful game to behold! Thank you Mexico, I have my new team to support:)
AngelAragiel - 6/17/2010, 7:27 PM
@Ror What team did you support before?
RorMachine - 6/17/2010, 7:31 PM
I'm Irish! We never made it because France cheated in our qualifying game when Henry palmed the ball in the box.
Upupandaway - 6/17/2010, 7:35 PM
@AngelAragiel- I don't mind if it is geared for teens/wide-audience. It just doesn't need to have eternal angst like Smallville. Blue Beetle should be fun with a good action/comedy mix. And Booster Gold would be great!

That CG looks pretty good for a small test. It looks a little too "clean" in that shot, but it's definitely workable.
Wadey09 - 6/17/2010, 7:39 PM
cool find @Ror!!!!
at about the 1:38 line, does that semi look familiar to you?
it might be off of something else, but it looked a LOT like Prime to me!
maybe he's getting the trailer in TF3?
AngelAragiel - 6/17/2010, 7:40 PM
@Ror yeah I saw that. Can't believe how referee let that slip.
GUNSMITH - 6/17/2010, 7:52 PM
RorMachine - 6/17/2010, 8:07 PM
Wadey, could well be man. There is quite a bit of footage in there from movies I have no clue of. Could even be some Green Lantern stuff for all we know!

Angel, well, what goes around comes around! Not only did they lose today, but one of Mexico s goals was offside:)
AngelAragiel - 6/17/2010, 8:13 PM
Well, if the referee didn't saw it me neither.
orod510 - 6/17/2010, 10:20 PM
If it refers to Ted Kord and others who have donned the blue beetle scarab i'd be happy. Thats all i want.

Wadey09 - 6/17/2010, 10:43 PM
we could only be so lucky. i doubt they would showcase any GL stuff until Comic Con. and if its special effects, it must have been from they were first pitching. because most of the visuals in that vid were pretty low key.
Denn1s - 6/18/2010, 2:43 AM
i really like the new blue beetle suit although ted is a classic character and must make an appearance...
LEEE777 - 6/18/2010, 2:47 AM
TED KORD and the original BEETLE better be mentioned in this!!!

Kudos to WB though! : P
LEEE777 - 6/18/2010, 2:51 AM

I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens with this Blue Beetle show.
BmanHall - 6/18/2010, 6:42 AM
Uhg... I guess I'll watch it at home.

@ RorMachine: Haha, dude, you have a knack for finding news I can't view at work. I guess I could let it slide for a fellow Irishman.
marvel72 - 6/18/2010, 8:40 AM
the blue beetle test footage was shit hot,what was that monster footage right at the start.
90caliber - 6/18/2010, 9:33 AM
Ted Kord is DEAD!
InstigatorGIRL - 6/18/2010, 1:59 PM
@deadpool It was from a Ben Ten movie.
blockhead - 6/18/2010, 4:30 PM

ProfOJ - 6/19/2010, 10:36 AM
that was pretty cool thanks!!!
odie00 - 6/19/2010, 7:17 PM
if thats what the blue beetle is going to be like then hell yeah bring it on. why couldnt they do something cool like that with smallville? that 5 seconds of blue beetle had way more awesome effects then smallville has had all together in my opinion lol
