Sony Pictures and Valiant Entertainment have released the second explosive trailer for Bloodshot, starring Vin Diesel as the titular Valiant Comics hero.
Valiant teased the debut of the second trailer on Monday with a short clip of Diesel’s Bloodshot using the nanites in his body to repair a hole in his chest. Thankfully, the new trailer gives fans an extended look at Bloodshot’s powers in action.
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.
