Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot movie gets synopsis and possible rating

March 16th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like Sony is getting the ball rolling on its Valiant Comics’ shared cinematic universe as we have an official synopsis for the Vin Diesel starring Bloodshot movie.

The film will be directed by Dave Wilson and will co-star Sam Heughan, Eiza Gonzalez, Guy Pearce and Toby Kebbell.

The principal photography on the movie has already finished an now we know it’ll be an origin movie.

Here’s the synopsis:

After he and his wife are murdered, Marine Ray Garrison (Vin Diesel) is resurrected by a secret team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – Bloodshot. As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both he and his wife, he breaks out of the facility hellbent on revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he originally thought.

Source say the movie is aiming for a PG-13 audience, therefore aiming for the bigger market. This makes sense to me, personally.

Do you think the world is ready for another comic book shared universe? Is Valiant likely to garner the sort of attention DC and Marvel draw?

We’ll all know soon enough.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
