    James Gunn has confirmed that Blue Beetle is the first superhero who will be making his debut in the DCEU. Gunn has appeared on the Inside of You podcast where he said that Blue Beetle will be the first character who would be introduced to the DCEU fans.

    The events of ‘Blue Beetle’ and ‘Aquaman’ will also be affected because of everything that happens in ‘The Flash.’ So although ‘Blue Beetle’ and ‘Aquaman’ won’t be a part of the plans made for the DCEU, they would be among the projects released in the shared universe while Superman: Legacy will be the first full DCEU movie.

    Gunn made his debut in the DCEU back in 2021 with ‘The Suicide Squad.’ Despite receiving positive reviews, the film was a box office flop. Meanwhile, a third film is expected after Gunn joined DC Studios.
