Blade screenwriter David Goyer has said he firmly believes Marvel Studios will reboot the vampire movie series.
The rights to the comic book property returned to the Disney-owned studio in 2011 and the Dark Knight Rises scribe believes a revival is inevitable.
“Now that Marvel/Disney have recaptured the rights, I’m sure it will be [remade]. They made too much money on that character to not reboot him at some point,” he told Crave Online.
“I mean, look, between merchandise and whatnot, that little character generated almost a billion dollars.”
New Line Cinema released a trilogy of Blade movies starring Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire hunter between 1998 and 2004.
The character was created for Marvel Comics by Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan, making his debut in 1973’s The Tomb of Dracula #10.
