Step into the Valiant Universe
Sony and Cross Creek are taking the first steps into the new Valiant Comics universe, with the first trailer for Bloodshot, starring Vin Diesel.
Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier killed in action and brought back to life by the RST corporation as the unstoppable machine-man assassin Bloodshot.
The Sony synopsis for the film reads: “With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force -stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.”
As you’d expect, the trailer is a whirlwind of futuristic action set to a Johnny Cash track and showcases many of Bloodshot’s abilities and a fair amount of Ray’s backstory, possibly to familiarise the audience with the story if they haven’t read the comic book.
Directed by David S.F. Wilson and written by Eric Heisserer and Jeff Wadlow (based on the Valiant Comics story) Bloodshot also stars Eiza Gonzalez, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, and Guy Pearce.
Bloodshot is set for release on February 21st, 2020.
