Kevin Feige Comments On BLADE's Current Status In The MCU - Could There Be Something In The Works?

We've known Marvel had regained the rights to Blade since 2013, but we still don't know if there are any plans to reintroduce the character into The MCU. Now, Kevin Feige offers a positive update...

Now that the rights to Blade are back with Marvel, is the studio finally going to utilise the fan-favourite character?

Kevin Feige has been asked about this before but never really gave us much to go on - however, during a new interview with Arrow In The Head, Marvel's head honcho speaks a bit more positively about the possibility, stating that it "would be cool" to do something with The Daywalker... someday.
 

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 day.

Though it doesn't sound like there are any current plans for Blade, Feige's comments do seem to suggest that some ideas might have been kicked around, at least.

If and when the studio does move forward with a new vehicle for the vampiric hero, chances are it'll be something for the small screen - although, Feige did recently state that R-rated MCU movies weren't "out of the question", so you never know!

What do you guys think? Sound off below.
