Bloodshot: Trailer Talk
Comic book adaptations are not new territory in the modern film industry. Marvel and DC films seem to release at least 3-5 films per year. However, the lesser-known comic adaptations are slightly scarce.
Therefore, I always get excited when something that doesn’t belong to the juggernauts of the comic book industry is announced. Enter ‘Bloodshot’.
‘Bloodshot’ is the comic book adaptation of the same name by American publisher Valiant Comics. It stars Vin Diesel as Ray Garrison, a soldier whose body has been recreated with self-healing blood.
This looks like ‘Deadpool’ meets ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ (yes, both films are also adaptations of comics or manga’s), but this does look like a fun popcorn flick. While there doesn’t appear to be much plot, I highly doubt that’s the focus here; with a very brief synopsis like the one described, and from looking at the trailer, it seems like we’re going to be treated to a violent, bloody action film. And, sometimes, that’s what the film industry needs.
‘Bloodshot’ will be in cinemas 21st February 2020.
Bloodshot was created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton during a wave of popularity for Valiant Comics. The character’s name was suggested by artist David Chlystek. The character first appeared in three panels on the last page of Eternal Warrior #4 (November 1992), before making his first full appearance in Rai #0 (November 1992) a week later.
