Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

Buried within a news story about Robert Downey Jr.'s contract negotiations for The Avengers 2 and 3 is a revelation about other possible Marvel projects in the pipeline.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Marvel has a writing program it uses as a concept generator and has scripts for Blade and Ms. Marvel features, for example. Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Black Panther and The Runaways are other projects on the horizon. The company slowly has been reacquiring licenses to characters it lost during the 1990s, snapping up Blade, Ghost Rider, Power Man and Daredevil in the past year alone."

For a long time, the screen rights to Power Man (Luke Cage) and his partner Iron Fist were held by different studios, but with them now back in the Marvel fold there's a better chance than ever that we could see the Heroes for Hire together onscreen.

Interesting look at what we might be getting in the future from Marvel.

It would be interesting if Marvel manages to get a Ms Marvel movie out before Wonder Woman. I hope they go with the original costume for Carol if it happens.

Also Blade reboot? It was only going to be a matter of time.

Also good news that Luke Cage and Iron First rights have reverted back to Marvel.

Re: Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

So, given Luke's catch phrase (WHAT'SMYNAMEJUNKIE!!? No, "Sweet Christmas"!) this has got to be a Christmas movie however, Iron Fist is going to lose a toe if he's wearing those dinky slippers in New York half way through December.

Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel?

Does anyone say "Ms." anymore?

I'm not a fan of the new Captain Marvel name for Carol. I think Marvel will be worried that it will confuse audiences since there is already a Captain America. Both Cap and Carol wear red and blue costume with star on chest...

Re: Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

Superhero names are very rarely used in Marvel movies anyway.

I dunno...Thor got used pretty often.

If they do make a Carol Dancers film I hope they go with "Captain." I still mainly associate Captain Marvel with the Big Red Cheese but that's highly unlikely for a movie... And Carol's earned it.

I am. I think that it's not only appropriate, but long-overdue. And as Guy said, nobody uses "ms." anymore.

Anyone find it sad that we might be getting a Ms Marvel movie before a live action Wonder Woman movie is released?

Re: Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

Wonder Woman is always going to almost have another new movie... Captain/Ms. Marvel has probably got one or two chances before Marvel files for bankruptcy and the licenses become far too complicated.

Re: Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

They'll use "Captain Marvel", because of the Hollywood perception that female superheroes don't sell.

Re: Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

I'd prefer them to use Ms. Marvel, although even if DC did go ahead with a Captain Marvel movie they would probably call it Shazam.

I'm not too fussed about a Blade reboot, but the news of Ms. Marvel and Luke Cage is exciting.

Re: Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

Jarvis raised a point last week that Major Danvers is demoting herself by assuming the rank of Captain Marvel.

Major Marvel?

I have no real interest in seeing either character on the big screen. Definitely vampired out at this point and unless they set Ms. Marvel in space fighting with the Kree or something her Earthly adventures would bring no excitement to my life.

Re: Ms. Marvel Movie and Blade Reboot

As far as I'm concerned, we don't need one more military character. The MMU has quite enough of them.
