Interestingly, The Wrecking Crew’s screenplay was written by Jonathan Tropper, the creator of the popular TV show Warrior, well before the SAG-AFTRA strike. The script was later sold to MGM, although details about its plot and storyline are yet to be revealed to the public.
Collaboration with the Director of Blue Beetle
The director of The Wrecking Crew, Ángel Manuel Soto, has already made a name for himself in the film industry. He is known for directing the documentary series Menudo: Forever Young and the drama film Charm City Kings. However, Soto’s most significant achievement so far is being the creative force behind Blue Beetle, the first-ever DC movie featuring a Latino superhero. While the film may have had a slow start at the box office, it has received positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. With a critic recommendation percentage of 76% and an audience recommendation percentage of 92%, Blue Beetle has successfully won over audiences.
