Today, over at The Cosmic Circus revealed a recent stunt double production listing had gone out for DC Comics upcoming Blue Beetle feature film. The stunt double is expected to resemble actor Jason Sudeikis as hero Ted Kord. Sudeikis is best known for his Apple+ series Ted Lasso and for appearing in Hulu’s recent Hit-Monkey TV series.
According to their sources, Kord will make a brief appearance in flashbacks in the film. This makes a lot of sense considering the film is expected to introduce his wife and the film’s villain, Victoria Kord, played by Susan Sarandon in the present. Kord is best known for teaming up with his futuristic wisecracking friend Booster Gold. It’s unknown if the film will feature Jason Sudeikis or look for an actor with his likeness, but the casting would be pretty spot on. Xolo Maridueña will star in the title Blue Beetle after taking up the mantle after Ted Kord. Production is currently underway by director Angel Manuel Soto.
