For a few years now, Valiant Comics has been circling Hollywood, looking for a way to bring its collection of characters to the big screen. Unlike Marvel and DC, their heroes and villains aren’t household names who are instantly recognizable to anyone with a pulse. They’re a trickier, tougher sell, coming from a universe that initially found its legs in the early ’90s and has won all kinds of critical acclaim since being relaunched in 2012.
Now, one of those characters has a new director. The Bloodshot movie is now in the hands of Dave Wilson and while you may not know that name, there’s a chance you know his work. And in a quietly canny move by Sony and Valiant, he comes from the same place as Deadpool director Tim Miller. Literally.
