Following in the footsteps of Marvel and DC, Bloodshot is the first instalment in the shared Valiant Comics cinematic universe. Just like you can now watch Marvel movies in order, the hope is that one day Valiant Comics fans will be able to do the same.
It stars Vin Diesel as marine Ray Garrison, who was murdered alongside his wife, Gina, by a group of mercenaries led by Martin Axe (Tony Kebbell). Garrison gets brought back from the dead by scientists and is quickly transformed into the superhuman, biotech-enhanced killing machine comic book lovers know as Bloodshot. After his memory returns and he remembers his dead wife, he embarks on a revenge mission and...that's all you should know before watching Bloodshot, lest anything be spoiled for you.
It's a big name feature directorial debut for David S. F. Wilson, who had a $45m budget to play with - only for the film to suffer at the box office due to the coronavirus pandemic. To mitigate this, Bloodshot has been released for on-demand streaming early, so while the film has received a mixed critical reception, you can form your own opinion from the comfort of your sofa. With that in mind, here's how to watch Bloodshot online and stream the new Vin Diesel movie wherever you are.
