Blue Beetle End Credit Scenes Explained: Both the mid and end credit scenes from Blue Beetle, explained. What do they mean?
Blue Beetle End Credit Scenes Explained
Now that Blue Beetle is out in theaters, we can talk about the mid and post credit scene. Fair warning, there will be major spoilers for Blue Beetle in this article. If you haven’t already seen the film, stop reading, go to theaters and see the movie, and then come back.
Blue Beetle features both a mid and post credit scene. The mid credit scene is the most important, with implications for the future of Blue Beetle and the DC Universe. The end credit is a bit silly (and honestly skippable).
Blue Beetle Mid Credit Scene Explained
While the mid credit scene is a little bit predictable, it is exciting. For those who didn’t know, it was revealed in the movie that Ted Kord is the original Blue Beetle. He didn’t have the powers of the scarab, but rather relied on the technology and gadgets that he built himself.
During the film, we see Jaime Reyes, the new Blue Beetle, get to know Ted Kord’s daughter, Jenny Kord, and even fall in love with her. After she discovers he has powers, she brings him to her father’s liar. We learn that he has disappeared, but has not been confirmed dead. One can only assume this happened when he was fighting a villain.
The Blue Beetle Mid Credit Scene takes viewers back to Ted’s lair, where we hear him over through the computer. He says that someone turned it on, and that they need to tell his daughter he is alive.
Who is the voice of Ted? We don’t know for sure, but many at the press screening we attended thought it sounded a bit like Kevin Bacon. Only time will tell. Hopefully, anyways.
We all know James Gunn is rebooting the DC Universe. So what does this mean? He has stated that this character is the first in his new universe, and hopefully he stays true to that. We can’t end on a cliffhanger like this.
All too often a sequel depends on how the film succeeds in theaters, but fingers crossed that DC continues with Jaime and Ted’s story no matter what. (Although we are hoping that Blue Beetle is a box office success!)

Blue Beetle End Credit Scene Explained
In all honesty, there is no need to stick around for the Blue Beetle end credit. It is very silly and means nothing for the future of the DC universe or Blue Beetle.
In the movie, Rudy Reyes (George Lopez) uses a Spanish cartoon to distract the guards of the Kord Corporation. The Blue Beetle end credit scene features more of that cartoon. It is funny, so stay if you wish, but just know it is not important to the future or to this story at all.
Blue Beetle is in theaters now. It is a really fun, super funny, down to Earth story that introduces a new DC hero everyone is sure to fall in love with — Jaime Reyes.
