Recently, DC Comics put together a test video for a proposed Blue Beetle live-action TV series. I gotta say, I dig it. Watch it below…

The proposed series would follow the latest incarnation of the Blue Beetle, Jaime Reyes, a teenager from Texas who the scarab chooses as its next host. In his short timespan as the hero, Reyes has been a member of the Teen Titans and has appeared in the animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold. At Comic-Con, it was revealed that he would be appearing in an episode of Smallville‘s final season along with fan favorite hero Booster Gold. Could DC be hoping to use Smallville to spin the character into his own series? It seems like a smart plan to me.
