*Valiant Comics’ new movie “Bloodshot” featuring Vin Diesel hits theaters this week and EURweb correspondent Monique Loveless got to sit down with the cast to talk about women being real superheroes during Women’s History Month.
“They already have superpowers.” Diesel’s gloating about his daughters, “My little four-year-old runs around the house singing ‘I just cannot wait to be king’ and I ask do you want to be queen? She says ‘no I am going to be king’.”
While Eiza Gonzalez, who plays the badass KT in the film believes it’s time for a woman president. “It’s time we have a woman president like we need it and we’re so ready for it.”
Bloodshot follows marine Ray Garrison (Diesel), who is resurrected by a team of scientists after he and his wife are murdered. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech, killing machine.
As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both him and his wife, he breaks out of the facility to get revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he thought.
It’s an American superhero film based on the Valiant Comics character of the same name. It is intended to be the first installment in a series of films set within a Valiant Comics shared cinematic universe. Fans get ready to definitely be satisfied.
“This isn’t a normal superhero story where the superhero wakes up to be heroic or comes from a planet of heroes.” Vin Diesel says about playing the character, Ray. “This is a superhero that eventually needs to break the chains of control and oppression.” He goes on to say, “We’re so accustomed to heroism being represented in that whitewash way and that’s not this case at all.”
Catch Bloodshot in theaters this Friday the 13th and it’s definitely an IMAX type movie.
