Valiant is kicking off its movie universe with Vin Diesel's Bloodshot, and now we might have our first full look at him as the character.
As part of the charity fundraiser Game4Paul, Vin Diesel partnered with Xbox to provide a number of items to help raise money for Walker's charity Reach Out WorldWide. One of those items is a limited to one signed copy of Bloodshot Salvation #12, which is signed by Diesel. It was drawn by Diesel's favorite Bloodshot artist Lewis LaRosa, and reveals Diesel's likeness as Bloodshot for the first time.
As you can see from the image below, if nothing really changes form this point on in production the character is going to look pretty spot-on compared to the character in the comics. Diesel is forgoing any armor on his upper body here, with all the focus going towards the character's trademark bloody red circle on his chest. Bloodshot doesn't really worry that much about getting shot with that handy healing ability, but he is up for dealing out damage thanks to those two pistols he's holding.
You can check out the full description for the variant below.
