I like it. It emphasizes the theme of the movie very clearly in its short span. Should hopefully get the general audience interested. Well done!

Really good. Appears to be a new direction for this type of film. It doesn't feel like your standard "super soldier" idea or just another movie about revenge. It seems unique. The trailer gives just enough action and back story to make you wanna see more. I think that's what is needed today for a comic book movie. All of us here will see it for sure since we are OG fans. I really hope the normies of the world will love it too. Thanks Dinesh for making this a reality.

Do we know if Bloodshot is going to have any of the visual cues to identify him as Bloodshot? We know he is bald, but will he have white skin? It doesn’t appear so based on the trailer. Hopefully he’ll have the red circle on his chest.

My only concern is people will just see this as another Vin Diesel action movie versus a Bloodshot movie if he doesn’t have anything that distinguishes him as Bloodshot.

It is hard to tell at this point based on a trailer.

This trailer is absolutely fantastic and I can't wait to see the final version of it!

That's at 02:23.5 and clearly showing it's not fully rendered and done yet. :lol:

This trailer has me very excited. I actually like the red glow under the ribcage for the red dot.

Does Sony still have rights to all Bloodshot stuff (like the Rai/Blood of Heroes connection)? I hope so, because watching a Rai movie like this would probably be my dream movie. Get some martial arts director and a really cool martial artist actor...

Trailer was great! Definitely hoping to see him in "costume" more in the film though. Not a fan of Spidey with his mask off half the time and so many cuts of Iron Man from within the helmet.

I love that all of the non-Valiant fans think the whole movie got spoiled in the trailer. They have no idea.

I thought the same thing - there's so much potential misdirection with the memory implant aspect of things, that everything shown in the trailer could be a a false memory whereas the small snippet of a pale Bloodshot might be the only time in the trailer we see "real life".

Kudos to Dinesh for bring Valiant back and getting a Bloodshot movie done. I know that it was not easy. The trailer looks great and should start gaining the interest of the movie crowd. Awsome job!

Absolutely loved it, and the international trailer I saw posted on FB too. I think I like the latter even better.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about a comic book Bloodshot with white skin (ala no blood circulation look) and the perfect red circle on his chest as a result of the injection process. Basically "superhero Bloodshot" as opposed to Vin Diesel running around.

Thanks Greg. I didn’t catch the pasty look. I thought the red chest was him getting shot and the nanites repairing him, but maybe it is the red circle on his chest.
