After having been announced by producer Dinesh Shamdasani on Sunday, Sony Pictures and Valiant Entertainment have released the first trailer for Vin Diesel’s upcoming Bloodshot solo movie.
The trailer, which you can see below, gives fans their first official look at Bloodshot and Diesel as the title character. The footage itself is particularly brutal, much like the teaser that was released for it.
The Bloodshot comic follows an amnesiac soldier named Raymond Garrison who can rapidly heal and shapeshift (thanks to nanites in his blood) on a quest for vengeance. The character was originally created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton and first appeared in 1992’s Eternal Warrior #4.
Bloodshot was originally intended to kick off a shared cinematic universe based around Valiant Entertainment characters, with a movie based off Harbinger also in development. However, Harbinger eventually moved from Sony Pictures to Paramount Pictures, putting the future of that shared universe in jeopardy.
Directed by Dave Wilson (VFX Supervisor for Avengers: Age of Ultron) with a script by Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jeff Wadlow (Truth or Dare), Bloodshot stars Vin Diesel, Guy Pearce and Toby Kebbell. The film is slated to arrive on February 21, 2020.
