Bloodshot was one of the last movies in 2020 to release before the world went into lockdown, and it was a decent superhero movie if anything. Now it’s finally confirmed that Vin Diesel will be reprising his role as Ray Garrison in a sequel to Bloodshot.
Speaking with CBR, DMG Entertainment Creative Head and filmmaker Dan Mintz said:
“I think [Bloodshot] was very successful in that respect, a lot of people saw it and it did very well in the post-release rollout but you can’t use the same evaluation process, pre-COVID, to this;
[Are] Vin Diesel and all those people going to still continue?
Yes, because it did so well and the response to it has been so well, it’s just that the response has been in a non-transparent environment, as opposed to a transparent environment like box office numbers.”
While Bloodshot only garnered only US$33.4 million at the worldwide box office, it turns out that the movie did better financially on VOD. It looks like we might be getting that Valiant Cinematic Universe after all.
In the meantime, if you haven’t watched Bloodshot or if you want to know more about the character, head on over here.
