Dave Bautista To Star In Live-action Film Adaptation Of Valiant Comics' The Eternal Warrior.

Dave Bautista recently revealed that he might play the live-action version of Valiant Comics’s the Eternal Warrior in an upcoming live-action film adaptation of the same name.

Bautista made the announcement while responding to fan on Twitter about his involvement in the project, "Glad you asked cuz I'm really excited about EW. We are currently working to get the script fan worthy and then we'll be full on from there," the former pro-wrestler replied.

Valiant's chief executive officer and chief creative officer Dinesh Shamdasani kind also confirmed the news.

Gilad Anni-Padda, also known as the Eternal Warrior, is one of three immortal brothers who exist in the Valiant Comics universe. The original 50-issue comic book series was written by Jim Shooter with art by John Dixon and published by Valiant Comics from 1992 to 1996. Later writers included Kevin VanHook, Barry Windsor-Smith, Mark Moretti, and John Ostrander.

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready.

    Bautista is set to reprise is Guardians of the Galaxy role in next year's Avengers: Infinity War.
