Ballsy move by Warners committing to so many movies. Provided they get the right mix of talent on board then it could all work out well. If not we might be looking at some Jonah Hex sized clusterfucks.

I just hope they don't follow the shared universe thing as tightly as Marvel have. Don't like it at all, ruins things for me.

Having the same characters appear again and again in the movies homogenises things too much. You're watching the same ensemble piece over and over.

Surprised Marvel hasn't tried to reboot Blade.

I'm sure I read that Marvel now has the rights once again for Ghost Rider & Blade - and they'd kind of fit in the Netflix universe wouldn't they? Along with the Punisher & other "darker" type heroes.

I would love to see a post-Twilight Blade movie. Maybe have Blade get hired by a rich tycoon to rescue his daughter who ran off with a handsome vampire who seduced her into sacrificing her life (she thought she would be gaining immortal love, all she was going to be was food for a vampire demi-god.)

Lol now that would be cool

Especially if the vampires glittered (say they painted themselves to make them look "cool") & Blade disparages it in some way ;)

Fair enough. I can definitely see that point of view. I do get tired of seeing/thinking of seeing some of the same characters in every film.

Are they doing a Netflix deal? That would be awesome. I'd love to see The Punisher, Ghost Rider, or Blade get a new film or series. Especially The Punisher.

Haven't heard anything concrete, however Blade returned to Marvel earlier this year, Ghost Rider reverted in 2013 & Punisher in 2010!! So.....

As all three have been part of the Marvel Knights, along with Daredevil, Iron Fist & Luke Cage (all of which are getting the mini-series treatment on Netflix) it kind of makes sense that they could get introduced in this iteration of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is being built on Netflix (Marvel Netflix Cinematic Universe???).

No reason why they couldn't!

Also, there are apparently teasers for the Punisher already in the MCU, with him supposedly making a cameo in Captain America: The Winter Solider when Nick Fury was saved by a Penske Truck crashing into a car that was trying to run Fury down - Winter Soldier director Joe Russo said "The man who drives that truck is very highly trained. He thinks on his own terms. He's got a plan and a very specific skill set" which a lot of people have taken to mean it was Frank Castle.

Whether that turns out to be the case or not remains to be seen!

God, I love me some The Punisher, but I think he works better without being surrounded by super heroes. I'd be more than interested in another attempt at his own franchise. Be it theatrically, a Netflix miniseries, or otherwise. Just make sure it's dark and gritty. Like Dredd was, tonally.

Did you ever see the not-at-all-Punisher-Punisher short that Thomas Jane starred in. It was called Dirty Laundry.

Produced by Adi Shankar (same guy who has just produced the unofficial animated Dredd cartoons), it starred Thomas Jane & Ron Pearlman & is brilliant. The story was written by John Romita Snr, and it just was so perfect it's a shame Jane wasn't given the chance to carry on the role of Frank Castle.

If you haven't seen it, here it is:
