Kevin Feige Talks Future of Blade


During the New York Comic Con, Kate Beckinsale was asked about a possible Underworld/Blade crossover during a Underworld: Blood Wars panel. She said: “No. We had that idea. No… They’re busy. They’re doing something with ‘Blade.’”

Kevin Feige said that while Beckinsale’s comments are technically true, there’s no immediate plans on the horizon. Feige told The Playlist: “That’s both true. They did ask a long time ago and I think our answer was, ‘No, we’ll do something with ‘Blade’ at some point.’ That’s still the answer. We still think he’s a great character. He’s a really fun character. We think this movie going into a different side of the universe would have the potential to have him pop up, but between the movies, the Netflix shows, the ABC shows there are so many opportunities for the character to pop up as you’re now seeing with Ghost Rider on ‘AGENTS of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ that rather than team up with another studio on that character let’s do something on our own. What that is? Where that will be? We’ll see. There is nothing imminent to my knowledge.”
