Good news for anyone holding out hope for another Blade film: It appears that Marvel hasn’t given up on the idea of putting another franchise installment into production. At some point.
JoBlo sat down with Marvel executive Kevin Feige to discuss the possibility of another Blade film and the takeaway seems to be that while it isn’t happening tomorrow, it will likely happen someday.
“We think it would be cool. Someday,” said Feige. “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 day.”
Blade follows a vampire hunter who is half human and half vampire on his quest to eradicate the world of vampires.
