Marvel Is Apparently Doing "Something" With The BLADE Franchise

Well, it's about time! Talking at the New York Comic-Con today, Underworld: Blood Wars star Kate Beckinsale unexpectedly offered an update of sorts on what's going on with the Blade franchise...

We haven't seen Blade on the big screen since 2004, and while Wesley Snipes has made some claims in regards to meeting with Marvel Studios about the vampire hunter's future, there hasn't really been any significant activity since they regained the rights back in 2012. However, a very unexpected source may have shed some light on some new developments for the character taking place in the near future. 

During a panel to promote the upcoming release of Underworld: Blood Wars, star Kate Beckinsale revealed that there was at one point talks to do a crossover between that franchise and Blade, but it didn't happen because Marvel currently has plans for the character (or just want nothing to do with Underworld). "No. We had that idea. No… They’re busy. They’re doing something with ‘Blade.'" 


It remains to be seen what happens to Blade. There's currently no room for the character in Phase 3, and with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now utilising Ghost Rider, it's possible he could show up there or on Netflix. What do you guys think? As always, let us know your thoughts on this in the usual place.
