Live-Action 'Blue Beetle' Test Footage Hits The 'Net [UPDATED]

Blue BeetleLast month, we got our first peek at some test footage for a live-action "Blue Beetle" television series that found its way online. Now the full clip has arrived on the 'Net after it was screened during this past week's Comic-Con.

The clip is directed by Alex Winter of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" fame, who's also directed several live-action "Ben 10" movies for Cartoon Network, as well as various other films. It debuted on Bleeding Cool, which indicated that the footage was made "under tight constraints and with minimal resources." The version of Blue Beetle that appears in the footage is the one designed by "Red" co-creator Cully Hamner.

There's no word on whether we'll actually see the series at some point (or where it could end up), but there's also no denying how cool it looks, right? Keep your fingers crossed, people.

[UPDATE: Newsarama editor Lucas Siegel points out that Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes will actually be making an appearance on an upcoming episode of "Smallville" — so maybe we'll see more of him there!]
