Early last month, Dave Bautista confirmed on Twitter he was working on an Eternal Warrior movie project with Valiant. However, Bautista was mum on other details including his role in the film.
Bautista is a six time WWE world champion under his ring name Batista. He won the WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship four times and the WWE Championship twice. He still holds the record for the longest reigning World Heavyweight Champion at 282 days. He’s also starred in a number of huge blockbuster films including Guardians of the Galaxy, The Man with the Iron Fists, Spectre, and Blade Runner 2049.
However, we got the scoop when we spoke with Valiant CEO Dinesh Shamdasani at Baltimore Comic-Con this past weekend. Dinesh is the head honcho at Valiant Entertainment. Whether it is comics, movies, or television, Dinesh is Valiant’s top guy. The buck stops at Dinesh when it comes to everything Valiant.
Here’s what Dinesh had to say about Dave Bautista’s role in the upcoming Eternal Warrior movie project.
For those who don’t know, the Eternal Warrior also known as Gilad Anni-Padda is the youngest of three immortal brothers. The Eternal Warrior is one of the first protectors of Earth. He is the Fist and Steel of the Geomancers, who guard the Earth. Gilad dedicates his life to the Geomancers. He seeks them out, protects them, and guides them as they carry out their duty to protect the Earth. Gilad is a master tactician with inhuman durability and exceptional strength. He’s a veteran of countless wars and carries the weight of the world on his shoulders.
The Eternal Warrior looks like it is in good hands.
