Here's Our First Look at What Vin Diesel Will Look Like in BLOODSHOT
Thanks to some comic book variant cover art we have our first look at what Vin Diesel will look like as Bloodshot. The art was created by Diesel's favorite Bloodshot artist Lewis LaRosa for Bloodshot Salvation #12 and this is a signed copy from the actor for the charity fundraiser Game4Paul. Vin Diesel partnered with Xbox and donated several items to help raise money for Walker's charity Reach Out WorldWide.
As you can see, the art reveals Diesel's likeness as Bloodshot for the first time and he looks pretty badass! It will be cool to see the live-action version of this design.
Bloodshot, a super-soldier created by the secret government organization Project Rising Spirit when he was brought back from the dead through the use of nanotechnology and suffering total memory loss, and struggles to reconnect with who he was while learning what sort of weapon he has become, with the help of a group of other augmented combatants called Chainsaw.
Bloodshot has powers of regeneration, technomancy and meta-morphing, which was made possible through nanites that were injected into his blood.
The movie also stars Toby Kebbell, Michael Sheen, Eiza González, Talulah Riley, Alex Hernandez and “Outlander’s” Sam Heughan.
The studio will start shooting in July and it's being directed by Dave Wilson, who is Deadpool director Tim Miller's partner at Blur Studios. The film is being written by Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and the studio is looking to develop it as an R-rated film that is being likened to Robocop, Terminator, and Total Recall. They want it to have that classic 1980s tone.
Here are the details on the comic:
