Blue Beetle Adds Sharon Stone as Villain Victoria Kord For Blue Beetle DCEU Movie
Thanks to The Wrap, we now have word on actress Sharon Stone (Basic Instinct, Total Recall) being the latest addition to the DCEU’s Blue Beetle movie. According to the recent report, Stone is set to play Victoria Kord who is an original character created for the upcoming movie.
The last name will be extremely familiar to DC Comics fans as the character will no doubt be related in some way to Jaime Reyes’ Blue Beetle predecessor, Ted Kord. How exactly Victoria Kord will be related to Ted within the movie is unknown, however rumours circulating point towards Victoria being Ted’s villainous ex-wife. A recent rumour surrounding Ted Kord has pointed towards actor James Marsden (X-Men, Sonic the Hedgehog) eyed to play the role in the upcoming DCEU movie.
Speaking of villains, The Wrap also added that actor Raoul Max Trujillo (Mayans M.C., Cowboys & Aliens) will be playing Carpax the Indestructible Man. Conrad Carpax was a minor rival to both the original & second Blue Beetle, Dan Garrett & Ted Kord. He was an archaeologist who had his mind fused with a robot body giving him powers such as superhuman strength, durability and power absorption.
