With Paramount seemingly doing Harbinger I wonder if they'll use it to push Paramount+ as that will need original content or if they'll push forward with a theatrical release.

Great news for Bloodshot! I thought the effects were outstanding.

The Harbinger news looks like more DMG pretending new things are happening but saying old things

The Justin Tipping news is old. Dinesh brought him on the movie. It's nice to see he's still the director. Here's an old article from 2018 I just googled that announced Tipping as director

And here is an article from 2019 talking about Paramount:

It's great news on the Oscar nomination, and completely reasonable to raise the movie news again for Harbinger.
