‘Bloodshot’ Production Has Started, According to Vin Diesel’s Recent Video

Vin Diesel is no stranger to comic book titles and films at this point, and he’s not stopping anytime soon. The next funny-papers-themed flick the actor is tackling is Valiant Comics’ property Bloodshot.

Dave Wilson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) is on board to direct the film about Angelo Mortalli, aka Bloodshot (who Diesel is playing), a former soldier with the powers of regeneration and shapeshifting. He also has the ability to interface directly with technology thanks to a bloodstream full of nano-computers.

The Sony release is (obviously) being fast-tracked, and it’s possibly one of the scheduling reasons why the already announced Silver and Black Spider-Man universe spinoff film is on hold.

There is no set release date for the film yet, but we’re expecting something to be announced before the end of the year.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.


Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
