Blade in the MCU? Spider-man: Homecoming director has a cool idea…

July 8th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Remember a few weeks back Marvel cinematic boss Kevin Feige said it would be fun to bring Blade into the MCU (here)?


Spider-man: Homecoming opening this week (review) director Jon Watts has been talking about the sequel and where it could go. Or, rather, who might be a cool choice for a villain and while he mentions Chameleon, he quickly adds: “Morbius is kind of cool!

“The tone of the character is pretty dark, but the vampire/Marvel Universe thing is pretty cool. Maybe we could get Blade to show up, too? That’d be neat…”

Morbius is a vampire in the comics and links Spider-man and Blade together as a mutual enemy.

We know that Watts is only spit-balling here… but it would be a cool way to tie the vampire world into the MCU, no?

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
