Valiant Comics forges its own cinematic universe beginning with Bloodshot, starring a perfectly cast Vin Diesel as the eponymous superhero.

Ray Garrison (Diesel) is an elite US Marine who is killed in action and subsequently reanimated and improved using nanotechnology. The tech upgrade invests him with enhanced strength and instant healing, transforming him into the ultimate weapon in modern warfare. However, Bloodshot has other ideas on how he’ll put his new superpowers to use. “I’ve got unfinished business,” he growls. “I’m going to find the man who murdered my wife, and kill him!” But with his memories being manipulated by the shady RST corporation (headed by Guy Pearce), he is left with mere fragments of his former life and an inability to tell what is real and what isn’t.

Universal Soldier meets Total Recall in the kind of big-dumb-fun action blockbuster that fits the charismatic Diesel like a gauntlet. Packed with inventively shot action sequences (think Matrix bullet-time and Upgrade) and a super support cast including Eiza González and Outlander heartthrob Sam Heughan, Bloodshot has a franchise firmly in its sights.
