Everybody’s favourite comics universe is getting pushed harder in to TV and film.

With NinjakHarbinger, Bloodshot, Dr Mirage and Quantum and Woody all in various stages of cinematic and televisual development Valiant has a new direction in that area.

DMG Entertainment has acquired Valiant after previously holding 57% of the third largest comic book company. DMG Entertainment is perhaps best known for its co-producing of Looper and Iron Man 3.

DMG ran by CEO and co-founder Dan Mintz explained the decision to fully own Valiant as one that “[…] is about taking it to the next level.” Mintz went on to explain specifically this is about growing outside comics publishing “I am not looking on expanding from a publishing standpoint but from a motion picture standpoint.”

With a library of 2,000 characters Valiant can compete with Marvel and DC in the television and film markets. Originally founded in 1989 and resurrected in 2012 it looks like Dinesh Shamdasani who helped bring Valiant back and was CEO will be leaving the company.

Fans of Valiant comics need not worry as this seems to be more about expanding Valiant universe in to movies and tv and not changing the direction of the writers and artists currently doing good work.

David has an undergraduate degree in Drama and first showed symptoms of a mind blown by cinema after watching The Godfather too many years ago to remember. He enjoys binge watching TV shows because that is the only way to watch them, right? The West Wing, The Sopranos and The Wire rank among his favourites of all time; the list could go on but changes the more he watches. Books, comics and games are also enjoyed in different moods. Finishing that novel is a life ambition.
