Marvel and DC aren't the only ones with superhero movies coming out in 2020. Sony Pictures is all set to release a brand new film starring action superstar Vin Diesel as the Valiant Comics hero Bloodshot.

Here’s everything you need to know about the project:

Release Date

'Bloodshot' will be released in theaters on March 13. 

Plot

The movie will follow Ray Garrison (Vin Diesel) as he adjusts to life as the supersoldier Bloodshot after he's brought back from the dead by an evil corporation that's messing with his memories to get him to kill for them. Here's the official synopsis, according to the movie's website:

"Based on the bestselling comic book, Vin Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation."

"With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force –stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out," the synopsis adds.

'Bloodshot' marks Wilson's feature directorial debut. Wilson has previously worked on visual effects for a number of videogames and he's also the director behind the 'Love, Death, and Robots' episode 'Sonnie's Edge'. The script for the movie was written by Jeff Wadlow and Eric Heisserer.

Trailer



 

The first trailer for 'Bloodshot' was released on October 21, 2019, and it introduces the audience to both the hero and the evil RST corporation that's responsible for bringing him back from the dead and turning him into a weapon.

The trailer also gave us our first look at Vin Diesel as Bloodshot, complete with super-strength and intense healing powers that are depicted with some mindblowing special effects. 



 

The second trailer for the movie was released on January 14, revealing that Bloodshot isn't the only superpowered soldier who is working for RST.

We don't get to see much of what the others are capable of doing and the trailer doesn't reveal whether they too are being controlled with false memories but we do get to see Bloodshot taking out some enemies with guns, a smiley face, and a twisted sense of humor.
