Fledgling Valiant Comics Movie Universe Is Pulling a Page Out of the MCU Handbook


There is no doubt that Marvel and DC rule the roost when it comes to comic book movies. But that does not mean they don’t have competitors. Valiant comics features its own list of exciting superhero titles, and the company recently made a less-than-stellar foray into films with the Vin Diesel-starrer Bloodshot, based on the comic series. In an interview with CinemaBlend, Dan Mintz, who runs Valiant Entertainment’s parent company, DMG Entertainment, and was a producer on Bloodshot, spoke about taking some cues from the MCU on how to establish a comic book movie franchise.

“You’re going through a studio process that takes many, many years. And I think, I think what we’re really looking to do is to kind of get a little bit more into the Marvel cadence where you’re putting out films that are back to back, so to speak. And so I think how to bring that forward a little bit faster I think is super important at this time. And also, there does need to be a single-mindedness, which doesn’t mean you’re restricting creativity. It just means that you need to choose your canvas. And what I mean by that is a lot of people don’t always choose their canvas before they start painting.”
