Comic book/television writer Geoff Johns dropped some exciting news for Blue Beetle fans on Twitter today. To wit:

BLUE BEETLE NEWS from DCE!! We have a live-action test of Jaime Reyes’ scarab activating his suit. It. Is. Awesome… we’re hoping to develop a live-action show. Fingers crossed!

In a 1973 letter he sent in answer to a fan’s questions, Gene Roddenberry discussed (at length!) the original Star Trek series, describing what the essence of the show was about and why it was canceled, and dropping this tidbit about Spock’s devilish appearance:

“We did think Spock became very interesting to fans, I did purposely give him a slight look of the ‘devil’ because I thought that might be particularly provocative to women, particularly when his nature contrasted so greatly to this. I’ll take credit for formulating Spock and guiding the character, then give as much credit to Leonard Nimoy for making it work, and also credit to the writers who kept it going in many story situations”

The Gene Roddenberry letter is a very very interesting one to read- it made me giggle in parts. As did some of the comments that the readers made. What do you think of the letter?

Blue Beetle getting a tv show? I guess it could work. It  probably couldn’t be worse than the Dick Grayson tv show that was threatening to come out not that long ago (And I say that as an avid Dick Grayson fan!). I don’tthink Blue Beetle gets as much love as he deserves.
