In February 2021, The Wrap reported that Charm City Kings director Angel Manuel Soto was set to direct the film,[1] which Soto later confirmed himself.[6] Not long after, a fan asked Soto on Twitter if Blue Beetle would be part of the DC Extended Universe, which Soto outright confirmed before later deleting the tweet.
