DMG and Paramount are working on The Harbinger film. Paramount bought the rights from Sony – which removes it from the Bloodshot universe, for good or ill.
Today, Valiant Entertainment, the comic book publisher behind The Harbinger announced a new series which will arrive in the summer of 2021.
Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly are co-writing, and the Spider-Gwen and Batgirl artist Robbi Rodriguez will illustrate. The new series is designed to introduce readers to the most powerful telepath on the planet; Peter Stancheck.
Stancheck, Harbinger, is the only being on the planet who can activate the latent powers in others like him.
Despite the power Harbinger has at his disposal, and a story which introduces new allies, villains and even costumes, writer Collin Kelly insists the series tells a very human story.
Like many of us, Peter has made mistakes. People have been hurt. We have no interest in ignoring that part of the character’s history.” The co-writer added, “By acknowledging those mistakes and taking responsibility for them, Peter will become the person – and the hero – he has always had the potential to be. Peter Stanchek will be more than a hero; he will be a harbinger for the world we want to see.
Meanwhile, co-writer Jackson Lanzing highlights how Harbinger will be used to advance the Valiant Universe story.
It’s unapologetic in its politics, diverse in its cast, and intimate in its drama. Collin and I love to tell stories that balance character deconstruction and social analysis, and there’s no one in comics who needs a little deconstruction and social awareness more than Peter.”
