While Sony Pictures is set to release the Valiant Entertainment superhero movie Bloodshot this week, star Vin Diesel has teased that the upcoming film opens the door for more characters to set up a Valiant Cinematic Universe.
“I think what this movie does is that it opens the door for all of them,” said Diesel. “I think you’re going to see all of them. I think if you’re a fan of Valiant Comics, then you are going to be delighted to hear — and I think they’re going to wait until the movie comes out — but they’re going to start putting out into the press all of the Valiant comic books that are going into the cinematic universe. It’s going to be very exciting.”
While Valiant fan will surely be excited by this news, it had been thought that Sony Pictures’ plans for a Valiant Cinematic Universe might no longer happen after Paramount snapped up the rights to Harbinger, and so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out following the release of Bloodshot.
