‘Blue Beetle’: Becky G Confirms Her Role As Khaji-Da In New Teaser Trailer

Warner Bros. is making no secret who will voice the alien symbiote Khaji-Da in the upcoming Blue Beetle film. Singer and Power Rangers actress Becky G has revealed her casting in a new teaser made just for her.

The character Khaji-Da is similar to Green Lantern’s power ring in that it chooses who is worthy of wearing the alien scarab that grants the Blue Beetle armor and powers. A big difference is that Khaji-Da is also the armor’s artificial intelligence system, so think Iron Man’s JARVIS.

The film is led by Xolo Mariduena as Jaime Reyes, joined by Bruna Marquezine, Belissa Escobedo, Adriana Barraza, Elpidia Carrillo, Damián Alcázar, Susan Sarandon, George Lopez, and Raoul Max Trujillo. Angel Manuel Soto directs from a script by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer.

Here’s the synopsis: Recent college grad Jaime Reyes (Xolo Mariduena) returns home full of aspirations for his future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it,” reads the synopsis. “As he searches to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab. When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armour capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the Super Hero Blue Beetle.

Blue Beetle hits theaters on August 18th.
