Taking to Instagram to share both her review of the film and the revealing blue leather outfit she wore to the premiere, the 36-year-old Taylor praised the latest cinematic swing from DC.
“What a fun movie! I loved Blue Beetle. This film was funny, family, action and culture!” Taylor said in her brief review on Instagram.
Although the *film* is not a part of the soon-to-be-launched DCU, co-CEO and creative mastermind James Gunn said that the *character* is the first in the DCU. If that is actually the case, it’s certainly a promising start for the DCU as Blue Beetle has opened to a very solid 82% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Check out the official synopsis for Blue Beetle below, via Warner Bros.:
