NYCC 2016: Kate Beckinsale wanted Underworld Vs Blade but couldn’t because Marvel have new plans for Blade

October 8th, 2016 by Marc Comments


For as long as we can remember. Wesley Snipes has been saying Marvel want to bring Blade back to the MCU (here) and that he’s been having ‘talks’ with them.

With rumours including everything from Blade’s daughter (here) to the (more likely now, given Ghost Rider in Agents of SHIELD this season) rumours that Netflix want him the next lineup of Marvel shows (here).

Whatever the truth of these may be, it looks likely that Marvel are indeed looking at ways to get Blade into the MCU – and we say ‘yes, please!’.

Now, coming from an unlikely source, the rumours are about to kick off again.

Talking at NYCC 2016 yesterday, Underworld: Blood Wars star Kate Beckinsale was asked if there was any possibility of her vampire franchise ever meeting Blade, the day walker. And her answer provoked more questions than answers:

“No. We had that idea. No,” Beckinsale said, “They’re busy. They’re doing something with Blade.”

That’s certainly interesting, isn’t it? And Underworld Vs Blade franchise couldn’t happen because Blade is tied up in Marvel’s plans… watch this space for more details. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

Do you want Blade back? Should Snipes be involved? Should he play him again? Let us know…

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….
