Remember how Geoff Johns was all atwitter about debuting the potential Blue Beetle TV series at Comic-Con? Well, Johns jumped the gun and leaked photos to DC's The Source blog. Here's his alter ego, Jaime Reyes, becoming the carapaced crusader.

Johns had this to say about the stills:

I feel very fortunate to have been a part of Blue Beetle's introduction way back in INFINITE CRISIS. I've said it before, but thanks to the BLUE BEETLE series launched by Keith Giffen and John Rogers with a great design by Cully Hamner, Jaime Reyes rocks. Great character, great story, great look. He's already appeared in animation, had action figures and right now he's on my computer in live-action glory. I have an early special effects test that has been floating around of what his armored scarab-suit could look like. This isn't final. This isn't greenlit. It's only a test that was done. We still have a long way to go to see if we can get this off the ground and a lot of people to jump on board…but check out some stills:

Johns also hopes to debut footage at Comic-Con in July, so your next B.B. fix is at most a month or so away.
