Vin Diesel could be Valiant’s Bloodshot


Sony is moving forward with its five-film shared universe plan for joint franchises based on the Valiant comic books Harbinger and Bloodshot.

Bloodshot’s protagonist is Angelo Mortalli, a ruthless killer for the mob who is set up by the family and framed for a murder. He instead goes into Witness Protection, but is betrayed by an FBI agent guarding him, kidnapped and forcibly subjected to an experimental program in which his body is injected with microscopic computers called nanites. They erase his brain and rebuild it and his body to be a weapon with superhuman strength and healing powers

The character has already shown up in live action for Valiant’s Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe where he was played by Jason David Frank, but there has been lots of talk about bringing Bloodshot to the big screen.

Jared Leto had been in talks, but according to The Wrap, Vin Diesel is now in talks for the role. While I don’t mind a bit of Vin, I don’t really feel he is the best choice for the role. There is actually quite a lot to the character and I’d rather have a non-action movie star take a crack at it.

Dave Wilson, who is Tim Miller’s (Deadpool) partner at Blur Studios, is attached to direct. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Eric Heisserer (Arrival) is writing the screenplay. The plan is for it to be rated R and for it to be released in 2019.

There is huge potential for films based on the Valiant comics, but is Vin Diesel the right choice to lead it? How do you feel about Vin playing Bloodshot?
