It would be awesome if Netflix bought Paramount with the intent of building the Valiant streaming/movie universe. How would that work with the rights to the characters though? Does Paramount own the filming rights to the Valiant characters forever (except Bloodshot)? So... If Netflix bought Paramount Netflix would own rights to Valiant filming forever? Or... is there some type of limit of time or number of pictures?

Paramount for sure has the rights to Harbinger, which is why there wasn't the planned Harada end credit scene at the end of the Bloodshot movie.

Didn't Netflix purchase MillarWorld, with the intention of getting his stuff onscreen for a Millar World universe?

Yes this is Classic Dan Mintz

Rumors are started so that executives (like Paramount) will look at them if they are being talked about. It's much easier to call something you make up a rumor than the "my sources say blah blah"

Hmm, news/rumors about Valiant IPs being considered for a TV series or movie had already existed way before 2018.

This is all so fake! 😂. I can see all this stuff being put out just so they can say “look at all the people talking about us! See how popular we are?” All after the almighty dollar..and to make themselves sound more important than they are.
