The good news is that a number of Marvel comics properties are back in the hands of Marvel Studios and may once again be seen on screen.  The bad news is that the feature treatment ain’t happening for all of them.  Marvel’s Kevin Feige talked about a number of planned and possible superhero films coming up in the next few years, including an adaptation of the lesser-known property Inhumans.  More recognizable names – like Blade, Punisher, Ghost Rider and Daredevil – are also under Marvel’s control once again, but will have to find the right time, place and treatment to fit into the studio’s current plans.  Hit the jump for updates on the above-mentioned properties and more, including the chances of a Marvel Zombies one-off.

New Teaser Trailer for BLADE Animated Series

by     Posted 2 years, 352 days ago


We’ve already seen a few images and a teaser trailer for the forthcoming animated series adaptation of Blade, but now the January 13th premiere of the new anime is right around the corner, and now there’s a new teaser trailer to get you psyched. While it takes a lot for me to truly get excited for an anime product (it’s just not my style), the action does look like it’s going to be pretty killer, and since it’s following everyone’s favorite vampire hunter (sorely needed in these Twilight Saga clogged days), it could very well be worth checking out.

Check out the new teaser trailer after the jump. Blade premieres January 13th.

Teaser Trailer and First Images from BLADE Anime Series

Though the franchise pretty much died off with Blade Trinity, one of your favorite vampire slayers is making a return, albeit in an animated form. Over in Japan, a Blade anime series will debut on July 1st, and Comics Alliance has stumbled upon the first images and a quick teaser trailer for the Marvel adaptation. Though we still don’t know when/if the series will make its way to the United States, this still looks like a pretty killer animated take on the vampire slayer. Story details are sparse due to some spotty translation from the Japanese site for the series, but the series will apparently have Blade teaming up with a young vampire hunter from Japan, Noah Van Helsing and his dog Razor against the evil Deacon Frost and his minions in Asia. Here’s hoping the series makes it overseas sometime soon. Check out the images and trailer after the jump.

G4 To Air Four New Marvel Animated Series Written by Warren Ellis

by     Posted 4 years, 147 days ago

Four brand new Iron Man, Blade, Wolverine, and X-Men series will all appear on the G4 TV network in the U.S. in 2011, according to a press release we were sent, and some readers might immediately wonder what is going on. As great of a network as G4 might be, it isn’t incredibly mainstream nor is it a prime place to air something that is usually reserved for the various network’s Saturday morning blocks or dedicated cartoon cable channels. That’s when I did a bit more research and found something interesting.

Warren Ellis, whom you might recognize for his numerous comic runs on various properties, was recently at Comic-Con on behalf of the adaptation of Red, which he created back in 2003. Apparently the 12 different 30-minute episodes he wrote based off of various storylines already in existence were intended for the south east Asian market, and he got the news that G4 would be airing them here just as soon as we did; today. The interesting part that the press release fails to note is that the four different series, according to Ellis, “will either be dubbed or subtitled.” They are being made by Madhouse in Japan, and it will be in anime style, so this isn’t some wild bid that G4 won. For the full press release and more details, including a trailer for the Iron Man series, hit the jump.

News just broke that David Goyer, heavily involved in Christopher and Jonathan Nolan’s other DC franchise (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), will be writing the next Superman film, according to Latino Review. Goyer has extensive experience with comic book films adapted to the big screen, and even wrote and directed Blade: Trinity. No, he likely won’t be directing this, but it does appear that this is one step closer to getting a good Superman flick.
