It’s official: Valiant is hitting the silver screen

valiantentertainment has partnered up with DMG Entertainment, the latter investing a cool chunk of change (reports estimate up to nine figures!) to develop the publisher’s properties into TV, movies and more for the American and Chinese markets. Events and merchandise also aren’t out of the question. DMG co-produced Iron Man 3, so the company already has some experience with the superhero game.

This is great news for us as fans, since it means Valiant’s colorful cast of characters will soon be appreciated by a much wider audience. Bloodshoot for everybody!

Aric of Dacia, a 4th century Visigoth armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon, is all that stands between the Earth and all-out annihilation at the hands of the alien race that abducted him from his own time. Now, the day of Aric’s reckoning has finally come. As his Visigoth forefathers sacked Rome, Aric will take the battle directly to his oppressors on the Vine homeworld of Loam. He will decimate their armies, he will level their cities – and he will not stop until the whole of their empire is reduced to ash. This is PLANET DEATH! (ComicBookResources)
