Valiant Comics will be bringing their Ninjak comic book series to life in a new live action web-series. Bat in the Sun has revealed the first look of Jason David Frank as Bloodshot.
Looks pretty impressive, especially for a web series. The character is best known for playing Tommy Olive in multiple versions of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in the 1990’s, implicating what to expect on the upcoming series.
(Angelo Mortalli is a hitman on the rise who the Carboni crime family sells to Project Rising Spirit, which erases his memories and infuses his bloodstream with microscopic machines called nanites that turn him into a killing-machine and engine of destruction. Oblivious to his true identity, the man who would become Bloodshot flees from Rising Spirit’s laboratories to learn who he is.)

It’s been a couple of years since Hollywood’s been trying to bring Bloodshot onto the big screen. Just last year, John Wick filmmakers David Leitch and Chad Stahelski jumped on board for the film based on a script by Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) and Eric Heisserer with Matthew Vaughn and Jason Kothari executive producing. Quiet recently, Sony renewed the option rights to make films based on Valiant Comics, giving Harbinger the green signal as the first film to launch the Valiant Cinematic Universe, and to be followed by Bloodshot.
The live action Ninjak series is set to be officially announced next weekend at the New-York Comic-Con. Michael Rowe (Arrow) will be acting out the lead character Ninjak – a wealthy British secret spy, and highly trained ninja. Rowe as Ninjak was revealed earlier in the week.
The show will also feature Kevin Porter, Ciera Foster, John Morrison, Derek Theler, Nicola Posener and Chantelle Barry. Aside from Bloodshot, the web series is expected to feature other popular Valiant Comics X-O Manowar, Faith, Divinity, Timewalker, Eternal Warrior and one of their newest characters, Savage.
