What do Ghost Rider/Johnny Blaze, Blade, Hannibal King, Morbius and Doctor Strange have in common?

They form one of the most powerful Marvel Teams that the masses are unaware of. There have been so many horror films, vampire pictures, supernatural movies over the last how many decades, but with the current advancement of CGI, this team should come to life on the big screen.

This is where fans of horror movies, goth lifestyle and lovers of comics can all find common ground. The question remains, will Columbia Pictures go after Blade to create the super team we have always wanted to see?

I think so, with the success of The Avengers, I believe it will open the doors for other studios to take risks on super teams on screen. The questions that must also be asked is, who will they cast for the team.

Nicholas Cage seems destined to not continue as Ghost Rider, with Wesley Snipes also no longer believed to be attached to Blade.

So who do you cast for the Midnight Sons?

Here is my suggestions:

Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider: Bradley Cooper or Josh Holloway

Blade: Idris Elba or Wesley Snipes

Hannibal King: David Wenham

Morbius: Taylor Kitsch

Doctor Strange: Daniel Day lewis

I believe this will be a great cbm, it has many factors going for it to make it a great movie. Out of this you get Vengeance, Lilith and Switchblade.

I think the time is ripe to do this, what is needed is a cbm of Doctor Strange. An offshoot can also be the Illuminati...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. We were lucky Avengers was as good as it turned out to be, Midnight Sons gather some not so popular heros who haven't had alot of success and a team up wouldn't be successful, and I doubt it'd be any good.

@ghostriderfan

You say that, but Blade had tons kf succesa, Dr strange hasnt been in a movie yet, bjt they've been talking about it. If he gets a successful movie then it would help.

Really, the only character that had sucky movies is your boy Ghost Rider, and marvel cant use him anyway.

The rights to Blade have reverted back to Marvel, and New Lines Cinema was the studio that used to own the rights to Blade not Columbia Pictures. Columbia Pictures does own the rights to Ghost Rider, though.

This belongs in fan-fic, for this is basically a fan-cast.
