While speaking with's Brandon Davis, Soto broke down Blue Beetle's emotional ending, which sees Jamie Reyes' father die and his family all essentially become heroes in their own right. Soto explains where the Reyes family will be in the future and how the ending alters their lives forever.

"I think their journey awakened what they have suppressed for so long. You know, If that serves as a metaphor to everything we go through as immigrants, it can, but now that they're able to see themselves as the heroes they've always been," Soto told us. "I think an empowerment comes, I think that in the future they're going to go at it. I think they're gonna help Jaime along the way. I think they were empowered to do so. They stepped into danger without any superpowers. And I think that whatever happens to the family at the end, they'll always stay together and there's more family members also that are not there, like other family like they don't have to be blood related like we have and that we want to introduce because that's the other family, right? The one that you choose. So we wanna be able to explore the different dynamics of family within the Jaime Reyes and the Reyes family story. And also if anything let that empowerment that the family have for viewers to also embrace because they can be heroes of their stories. They don't need a scarab makes you with superpowers, right? But I think what's in your heart is what makes you a hero and anybody can see themselves through it. They can be heroes too."
