Could fan favorite Blade be making a return as a reboot? Well, Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, actually had few things to say on this subject, which we found interesting.
“We think it would be cool. Someday. My tenure at Marvel started 17 years ago, and there were two things that sort of launched the modern era. One was X-Men, which was the first thing that people said, “Oh, there’s life here.” But a few years before that, there was Blade. A character nobody had heard of at all, had only appeared in a few issues of Tomb of Dracula or something, turned into a big franchise.”
“That was always a great lesson for me, where you go, “It doesn’t matter how well known the character is, it matters how cool the movie is.” Which, many years later, would be the reason we do Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange. I think Blade is a legacy character now, and I think it would be fun to do something with him one”
This is somewhat intriguing because Marvel just got the rights back to the character a few years ago and although, he does sound rather vague, we’re thinking since recently Feige finally said perhaps there was a chance for a rated R film in the future of Marvel Studios, who better to kick that off than Blade?
Although, personally, we would rather see it as a Netflix show.
