Now Valiant is Getting Into the Shared Movie Universe Game

You see kids, when one comic loves another comic very much, they get together in a very special kind of "hug," and that's where movies come from.

Remember a while back when we told you about how our friends at Valiant went and signed a big-money deal to get some movies made based on their comics?

Well, things are moving pretty quickly there. The Hollywood Reporter has an EXCLUSIVE report that Bloodshot will be the first of their comics to hit the big screen, and that's going to happen in 2017. The film will be directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, they of the recent Keanu Reeves action picture John Wick. 

But wait, there's more! There are actually going to be two Bloodshot films, alongside two Harbinger films, and then the two properties will crossover into a Harbinger Wars movie. Hey! That's what happened in the comics! Well, played, Valiant. 

While we all speculate on who is pasty enough to play Bloodshot in a film, let's all remember that you're nobody in Hollywood until your movie is in a shared universe with someone else's movie.
