Venom might have gotten bad reviews but the movie has made a ton of money, meaning that Sony is on something of a roll as of late. The company confirmed that Morbius the Living Vampire would be next and would share the same universe as the symbiote anti-hero, so a crossover is bound to happen. Sony isn’t just relying on Marvel, however, as the company is also planning a cinematic universe with Valiant Comics.
Bloodshot is the first film of this supposed franchise, with Vin Diesel in the lead role and a 2020 release date. We’ve been waiting for an official look at what the Groot actor would look like as the hardboiled Bloodshot and it looks like we may have gotten our unofficial first look, thanks to the Game4Paul charity event, which is a tribute to the late actor, Paul Walker.

The event posted several Bloodshot-related items as auctions and one of them is a variant cover of Bloodshot Salvation #12 from artist Lewis LaRosa. This resembles Vin Diesel quite a bit and even has his signature on it as a bonus, which should make this one hell of a collector’s item.
Seeing this image should give fans hope that the live-action version of the character will look this good. The people at Sony managed to make Venom look great, despite not having the white Spider emblem, so they can do the same for Valiant’s premiere superhero.
Bloodshot is still in production and is aiming for a 2020 release date.
