While we have the Marvel Cinematic Universe dominating on the comic book movie scene, while Warner Bros. and DC are trying anything and everything to catch them up, there is another possible comic book world that could prove a hit on the big screen. We have been hearing about the possibility of the Valiant comics universe coming to the big screen and, with the huge success of comic book movies in recent years, now could be the perfect time to bring them to us.
One of the most talked about Valiant characters with the potential to be adapted to the big screen, is that of Bloodshot, and while there has been talk of this happening for a few years now, it was just last year that we last heard of a Bloodshot movie being made. While nothing has yet to actually move into any sort of real development, it does not mean that we have to stop dreaming about it.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the character Bloodshot, he has been described by a fan as, "A former special ops soldier who has been infused with nanites which grant him a healing factor, super-strength and enhanced reflexes. He seeks to find out who he was and will kill anyone who gets in his way. He's basically the pinnacle of crazy 90s comic book action in the best way."
As for who should play the role of Bloodshot on the big screen, we have heard plenty of fans suggestions as to which actor should take on the character and our favourite has to be Joe Manganiello. As well as having the right look to play Bloodshot, Joe also has what it takes to pull off the big action sequences we expect in the film, and has the credentials to get the personality just right.
With all that said though, this is all still just speculation and we might not ever actually get to see the Valiant movie universe come to fruition.
