While talking with comicbook.com about its upcoming slate of books, CEO/COO Dinesh Shamdasani also described their proposed film adaptations as stories involving superheroes, but not superheroes stories.
As an example, he called Bloodshot, the first film on their schedule, a “sci-fi action adventure” in the mold of The Terminator and Total Recall. “The other iconography, the tropes, the conventions the trappings of the film are in a different genre than I think people would expect from Bloodshot,” added Shamdasani.
The company hopes to maintain the tone of the comics as they are translated into film via a partnership with Sony Pictures. Bloodshot is expected for release in 2017, to be followed by Harbinger and an eventual Harbinger Wars crossover film.
