Based on the bestselling comic book, Vin Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation. With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force –stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.

The studio also released the international trailer which you can view below:
The first trailer seems to confirm that this will be the origin of Bloodshot as we don’t see him having the iconic look from the comics quite yet. That is, assuming that we get to see him with the pale while look from the comics. Written by Eric Heisserer and Jeff Wadlow, the film is directed by Dave Wilson, and hopefully, we’ll be seeing at least one look of the character as he should be before the movie is released.
