The 2020 superhero movie Bloodshot is based on the same-named Valiant Comics character. David S. F. Wilson directed the film based on a script by Jeff Wadlow, Eric Heisserer, and Wadlow.
The movie revolves around Ray Garrison. He is a former marine killed in combat and resurrected by a corporation. He is transformed into an unbreakable super-soldier via nanotechnology. Vin Diesel played the role of Ray Garrison in the movie.
According to Fred Pierce, the publisher of Valiant Comics, the movie was meant to pave the way for a future series and serve as the start of the Valiant cinematic universe.
On March 13, 2020, Sony Pictures premiered the film in theaters around the country. The movie made $37 million worldwide but was not well received by critics, who praised the action and special effects but criticized the basic plot and Diesel’s acting.
Less than two weeks after its theatrical premiere, Sony made the movie available on on-demand streaming platforms due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Bloodshot 2 Release Date
A release date hasn’t been declared yet for Bloodshot 2 but it will be released somewhere in 2023. The most we can do for now is make an informed prediction. The movie’s sequel was confirmed to be in production in 2020.
There have been no more confirmations about development or filming dates. It appears that we’re at least a couple of months away. Some time in 2023 may be the safest prediction.
Bloodshot 2 Cast
We already know that Vin Diesel would continue to headline the cast. He announced his engagement in December 2020.
Beyond it, there have been no other casting announcements. However, several of the previous film’s supporting actors may come back. Most notably, Lamorne Morris in the role of Wilfred Wigans and Eiza Gonzalez in the role of KT.
In the first film, various characters were murdered. Even though resurrecting is possible in reality, it is assumed that they won’t return for this occasion.
Several new actors will likely join the cast for the upcoming movie, including some new antagonists.
Bloodshot 2 Storyline
In the first movie, Garrison seeks vengeance on the guy who murdered him and his wife after resurrecting as a fury monster. It doesn’t take long, though, until He realizes that his memories have indeed been altered. Garrison’s wife had left him five years before. Under the guise of romantic retribution missions, RST company has been exploiting their new agent to kill individuals of their choice.
Garrison defeats the RST evil guys, but at the expense of his own life, and it appears that Garrison is dead. The closing scene of Bloodshot shows Wilfred Wigans rebuilding his furious, bald companion and escaping with KT. The group of three departs together into the distance.
However, just before the movie ends, the voice of Wigans could be audible, raising some questions about the integrity of the movie’s conclusion. Wigans is concerned about the ending before it reaches a happy end, saying, “a little too perfect if you ask me. Are you serious? Right into the sunset? Are we sure that ain’t all a sim…”
This remark is exactly in line with the humor of the most gloomy and self-deprecating Wigans. The joke might just be Wigans’ effort to relieve tension after understanding his new status as Ray and KT’s third wheel. His fears might come true in a new movie.
The second movie can follow up with the first by making Wigans’ concerns come true. It can also follow a different storyline since there is a lot of material that it can use.
Bloodshot 2 Trailer
There is no official trailer for Bloodshot 2 yet. A teaser or a trailer will probably be released a few months before the movie’s premiere date. It would probably show a little bit of the movie’s plot when it is released. The trailer will likely also include some of the new cast members for the movie.
Bloodshot 2 Premiere Date
On March 10, 2020, the first movie had an international debut at Westwood and California City. Bloodshot 2 premiere date has not been announced, and the venue for its premiere has not been set. The part 2 is expected to premiere in 2023.
Bloodshot Renewal Status
Even though the movie didn’t hit big in theaters due to covid, it gained a fan following. However, the movie was also heavily criticized by critics. The movie was made available for streaming by Sony later in 2020.
Currently, Bloodshot is set to have a second part to its storyline. The movie’s sequel was in production in 2020, but no release date exists.
