Marvel's BLADE Movie Will Reportedly Focus on Blade's Daughter
Is some pretty cool rumor news, Bleeding Cool claims to have an inside source saying that there are future Blade movies on the horizon. We've heard rumors about this for awhile, and yes, if it does happen it's looking like Wesley Snipes will be reprising his iconic role as the Daywalker. However, he may not be the main focus of the upcoming movies. According to the report, the main character is going to be the Blade's daughter, Fallon Grey.
Yes, the project is in limbo and it may not move forward anytime soon, but it is exciting to know that the higher ups of Marvel are interested in bringing this franchise back to the big screen. I love the Blade trilogy. I am stoked to see what a new, modern day take on the Blade story would be like.
For those of you who have not heard of Fallon, here is a little description given by the new Blade comic series writer Tim Seeley:
"Blade’s daughter is 16-year-old Fallon Grey. “She’s a sort of ‘anti-Peter Parker.’ She’s popular, she’s well-liked and it seems like the world is her oyster. But, the expectations that come with being so damn perfect are starting to break her down, and that’s before she learns she’s the heir to a Daywalking-Monster-Stabbing-Empire.
I am excited to see what this character can bring to this franchise. The first Fallon Grey comic will be hitting the shelves this October. They are using the comic as a way to test the waters with this character. The upcoming movies will come when the movie higher ups pull their heads out of their butts and realize that this is something the Marvel Cinematic Universe needs. We will keep you informed.
