The craze of Hollywood studios for movie comics led to the fact that some actors began to register in several superhero franchises at once. Today, no one is surprised that the performer of the role of the intergalactic villain Thanos in the Marvel universe and the mutant Cable in the film series about X-Men >it can be the same person. As it became known to the edition The Hollywood Reporter , the example of Josh Brolin is ready to take Dave Batista .|
The six-time world wrestling champion first appeared in films back in 2006, but the real breakthrough in his acting career came with the role of Drax in the superhero blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. While chatting with his fans on Twitter, Batista admitted that he is currently working on the adaptation of another comic book - " Eternal Warrior ".
The first issue of Jim Shooter's graphic novel was released by Valiant Comics in 1992. Its main character is the immortal protector of the Earth Gilad Anni-Padda , who took part in many military conflicts of the last five thousand years of human history.
Valiant announced its desire to create its own cinematic universe in March 2015, and a month later it managed to find a solid Hollywood partner in the person of Sony Pictures . For more than two years, there was practically no news about the fate of the franchise, until a month and a half ago there was information on the Web that the shooting of the film based on the graphic novel "Shadow Man" was entrusted to Reginald Hadlin ("Fraudsters"). As reported, the leadership of Valiant also intends to get the ball rolling on the Archer and Armstrong comic strip, the director's chair of which is assigned to Ruben Fleischer (Welcome to Zombieland).
It is possible that the plot of the picture about the immortal warrior will be closely related to the film Fleischer , since in the comics Valiant Gilad and Armstrong were brothers. Although Batista himself has not yet clarified what functions he will take upon himself when creating " Eternal Warrior ", insiders are inclined to believe that he can act simultaneously as a producer and performer of the title roles.
If the role of Dave in the young cinematic universe Valiant is still shrouded in an aura of mystery, then his future in the superhero franchise Marvel is already predetermined: Batistawill reappear as Drax next year in the blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War.
