Blue Beetle' movie review: Blue Beetle dethrones Barbie in US 

"Blue Beetle" came out on top at the weekend box office, but it didn't have the best start among DC superhero movies in this era, making around $25.4 million. 

The weekend for "Blue Beetle," the newest superhero movie in North American theaters and the first with a Latino main character in live-action, had some good and bad news. 

This movie, produced by DC Studios and Warner Bros., managed to be the highest earner from Friday to Sunday, even surpassing the popular "Barbie" movie 

which had been doing really well. That's what the experts at Exhibitor Relations shared on Sunday. 

the amount it collected, estimated at $25.4 million, was the lowest start for a DC superhero movie during this time 

Except for the not-so-profitable "Wonder Woman 1984" from 2021. 

The lead in "Beetle" is played by 22-year-old American actor Xolo Mariduena 

who has a mix of Mexican, Cuban, and Ecuadoran heritage.
