Will Marvel’s ‘Blade’ or ‘Ghost Rider’ Return?

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D - 19

It’s sort of a shame to see the Blade franchise whimper away like it did. It’s even more of a disappointment that both Ghost Rider films were terrible. Marvel hopes to bring both characters back in the near future; could the success of their newly minted franchises help them get it right? I’d think so…

In a massive article in EW, Marvel chief Kevin Feige stated that both Blade and Ghost Rider could eventually return to action.

Whenever a character comes back to us, it’s usually because because the other studios don’t want to make the movies anymore — and that usually means the [previous] movies have not been well-received,” Feige tells the magazine. “They all have potential, but we’re not going to say, ‘We got it back — make it!’

Which character would you prefer to see back first? I’m going to guess Blade? Holy crap the first two movies are still amazing

    The blade trilogy was ok and I never understood why Nick Cage was casted as Johnny Blaze along with all the other poles he gets! Please someone get a good actor for the Ghost Rider reboot!

    I would love to see another blade movie but i’m not sure how it’s possible considering how he killed dracula in the last crappy movie.

    • huntermc

      Reboot!

      • Raziel_cz

        O God, no!

    You guys will crucify me, but I say reboot Blade and make something reminiscent of his Blaxploitation/Hammer Studio Horror- crossover roots.

      YES!!! And maybe incorporate Morbius somehow. Personally, I liked the first Ghost Rider. Wouldn’t mind seeing one that wasn’t that second one… a decent Man Thing movie could be cool.

        The first Ghost Rider was a little too kiddy for me, the 2nd was just bad. I love the character though.

  • Cichy

    First two Blade moves were amazing, third one was crap and killed the franchise. Both Ghost Rider movies were horrible so it’s hands down Blade for me.

    • VersaVulture

      That’s why Ghost Rider should be rebooted first. All the movies were bad. There needs to be redemption for the character so that the fans could be happy. If we don’t get a Blade reboot, we’ll still have two awesome movies.

      • Cichy

        You make a good point. Everything about the Ghost Rider movies sucked, they really need to step it up.

    i’m all for a new BLADE movie (w/ Denzel) or a reboot of that franchise. GHOST RIDER i never really was into so i don’t care either way (but i’m open to a reboot).

  • Zombie-Killa

    I really hated Blade III. The trash talking between Parker Posey and Ryan Reynolds was hilarious, but everything else was shit, IMO.

    Ghost Rider was just unbearable, featuring one of the worst antagonist I’ve ever seen in any type of film. Spirit Of Vengeance was better……but it was just better than the first film. Nothing too spectacular, just not as bad as the original.

    But yeah, I’m all for both returning. I would rather see Ghost Rider first, though, because I enjoy the character more. Vampire hunters are nothing new. But a guy with a flaming skull? Now that’s something different! lol.

    I like Ghost Rider and I even liked the first movie, even though it was made without much substance. The first two Blade movies were absolutely awesome! The third one I don’t even remember, so year, I’m basically up for a reboot of both franchises – giving a slight advantage to Ghost Rider.

    How about none?

    I enjoyed blade 1 and 2, haven’t yet been able to psych myself up enough to watch 3 and I don’t think that remake of blade is a good idea. Vampires have changed since blade so a new blade wouldn’t work because our perception of vampires has changed unless blade changes with it and then it wouldn’t be blade.

    Don’t really care who they redo first. Would like to see both characters again, and in better films(the first 2 Blade movies were sweet!). Blade would be cool to see again with something that was like 1 and 2. The third had its moments, but I really didn’t think they had the right actor to play Dracula. He just didn’t fit. Would like for it to be more dark like the first two or even darker.
    Ghost Rider just needs someone who knows the Rider myth. Now, I don’t it, but I think it has such huge potential. Didn’t really care for Nicholas Cage as Blaze, and thought the first film didn’t do much with the Rider. The second had a better look and feel of the Rider, but was just soooo horrible. Which pissed me off because I kinda like the film style of the dudes that made it. Would look forward to a reboot of both franchises, so lets hope someone out there really believes they can make a good film.

    I would LOVE to see Ghost Rider and Blade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

  • FromHeroesToDust

    Couldn’t possibly care any less for Ghost Rider, but I would love to see Blade come back. I loved the first two, the third was just O.K. for me.

  • Erebus Dirge

    I’m with Dr Lamb go the blaxpliotation route but make all the vampires white. Maybe use some grindhouse filters, I could see the tag line – BLADE – He Hunts The Horrors That Haunts Harlem’s Streets! Don’t just have vampires but have all kinds of crazy shit werewolves and frankenstien monster types with the vamps being the top of the tree Blade has to fight his way RAID STYLE.

  • Aaron Emery

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a return of Blade. I don’t think any of the movies were so horrible that they would kill the franchise.
    I still haven’t seen ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ all the way through and for that I’m grateful.
    I’m really not a huge fan of Marvel/DC films as a whole, not a comic book reader and frankly I get bored with them.

    I liked how the filmmakers risked life and limb for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. But as any filmmaker(myself included) knows that fancy camera work doesn’t make a good film. And they’ve failed twice with Ghost Rider now. BLADE to me is a different story. I enjoyed 1 and 2. Anything with Guillermo del Toro(BLADE 2) I’m usually in to. He’s the master when it comes to monsters films(Minus Mama). But I think with Ghost Rider it should be darker with better writers who know the character well(Like Nolan did with the BatMan/Dark Knight).
