'Ninjak vs. The Valiant Universe': Watch the Teaser That Heralds New Digital Division For Valiant
Valiant Entertainment has entered the digital game. At New York Comic Con, Valiant announced Ninjak vs. The Valiant Universe, the first web series to be developed and produced by its new arm, Valiant Digital.
The project marks the debut of Valiant Digital, a new division of Valiant intended to expand the company's brand beyond its current comic book footprint ahead of big-screen projects including Sony's Harbinger and Bloodshot. Future projects from the division are already being teased for coming months.
"We are incredibly excited to finally be sharing the first project from Valiant Digital with the Valiant fanbase, the comic book faithful and a whole new legion of fans who consume pop culture in the digital arena, but have yet to purchase their first Valiant comic," said CCO Dinesh Shamdasani in a statement. "We're bringing the same passion and intensity that helped us produce some of the best comics in the business and coupling that with an incredible, first-class team of filmmakers to create an experience that must be seen to be believed."
Ninjak vs. The Valiant Universe will launch in 2017.
