Fans of the ‘Blade’ franchise have eagerly awaited news of a new film hat has been rumored for years. Today, we have a confirmation from an unlikely source, ‘Underworld’s’ Kate Beckinsale who lays the badass character Selene.
During this past weekend’s New York Comic Con, Beckinsale was answering questions about her soon to be released sequel ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ when she was asked about the possible cross-over wanted by the people behind ‘Underworld’. She simply answered, “No. We had that idea. No. They’re busy. They’re doing something with Blade.” That confirms that the sequel is still alive and is in development. Hopefully we will see it sooner rather than later.
Rumors have come that say the new Marvel film will be based on Wesley Snipe’s vampire hunting character, while others say that it will be about Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey. A new series was in the works for a Fallon Grey last year, but there has been no update on its status.
Both ‘Blade’ and Fallon Grey would be a great fit for Netflix. Netflix has delivered several amazing original hero and antihero series over the past couple of years, such as ‘Daredevil’, ‘Jessica Jones’, and ‘Luke Cage’. They also have a ‘Punisher’ and an ‘Iron Fist’ series soon to premiere.
