Vin Diesel offers a first look at his titular character in the upcoming Bloodshot movie.

The Bloodshot comic series, comprised of more than 110 issues with more than 7.5 million copies sold, centers on Ray Garrison, aka Bloodshot, who is brought back from the dead by Rising Spirit Technologies through the use of nanotechnology and suffering total memory loss.
