Sharon Stone  won't appear in  DC's Blue Beetle . She was considered for the role of the main antagonist and negotiated, but according to The Wrap, Oscar winner  Susan Sarandon  was preferred.

She will have to transform into Victoria Kord - a new character created specifically for the film.

Blue Beetle, aka Mexican-American Jaime Reyes, will be played  by Jolo Maridueno , best known for his role as Miguel Diaz in the popular karate series   Cobra Kai.

In the comics, Jaime Reyes is the third hero to hold the title of Blue Beetle . He draws his strength from an alien Scarab attached to his spine. At the right moment, the Scarab envelops the wearer's body in a heavy-duty suit, granting them increased strength and agility.

The Blue Beetle is often seen in DC animation projects. He was a member of the Titans and the Justice League.
