We’ve been hearing rumors about a new Blade movie (or possibly a TV series) for some time now. Marvel Studios now holds the rights to the character, so it’s really up to them to figure out if — and how — they want to bring him back. Wesley Snipes himself recently revealed that he’s met with the studio, but things are “still up in the air.” Maybe they aren’t as up in the air as Snipes said.

We don’t yet know how deeply the next Guardians of the Galaxy will delve into the history of its core five (save for Star-Lord’s pappy), while Disney XD’s upcoming animated series has taken care to introduce detailed origins glossed over by the films. Next up is Drax the Destroyer, whose history with Ronan the Accuser may have been more complicated than we realize.
Cosplay has moved beyond simple hobby into an outright dedicated art form with professionally-shot photos and carefully constructed, very accurate costumes. It is, in the eyes of some, the ultimate display of devotion to fandom. And after years of cosplayers taking over conventions, Marvel is giving some of the best ones some very cool recognition by putting them front and center on new variant covers of their comic books
Marvel’s Jessica Jones doesn’t yet have an official photo to its name, but already Netflix successor Luke Cage may have his big bad. Alfred Woodard has reportedly joined the series in a majorly antagonistic role, one adapted from classic Luke Cage villain “Black Mariah.”
A few months back, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans were surprised to learn Marvel and ABC intended to develop a spinoff around Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter, ostensibly two of the strongest additions to the main series. That project was quickly shelved, but will apparently fly again with a pilot order for Marvel’s Most Wanted on ABC.
Daredevil, you’ve done it again! The Netflix man without fear’s Twitter account has issued yet another cryptic tease that has fans in a tizzy, this time inspiring debate over the Daredevil costume itself. Could Matt Murdock suit up with some new duds when Season 2 premieres in 2016? Sure, but not today! Allow us to explain.
The fluid design of Netflix’s website has occasionally given way to early gaffes among the original series, including an early House of Cards Season 3 leak, and Daredevil’s red costume, so might Jessica Jones follow suit? All 13 episode titles from Marvel’s next Defender have reportedly emerged online, some of which could tease a Power-ful climax to the season.
If you’ve somehow avoided seeing Ant-Man just yet, then be warned that this post is filled with spoilers, obviously. With all the dudes fighting in their mechanized superhero (and villain) costumes in the film, there was one character who didn’t make it into a super-suit: Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne. But according to Lilly, it may not be too much longer before she suits up for Marvel.
One of the more interesting elements of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series has afforded movie-influenced backstories to each character, that while not necessarily canon, offer insightful looks into the character history James Gunn could only exposit in the film. Next up comes Rocket Raccoon, whose gruesome origins are a tough one to tackle for Disney XD.
The Iron Man Experience was first announced back in 2013 as a new attraction for Hong Kong Disneyland — yes, that means unless you want to pony up the cash for a vacation to China, you won’t get to hang out in Stark Tower. Yesterday at D23, the studio revealed some concept art and new details about the immersive experience of their first Marvel attraction.
