The “Blade Universe” Could Return To The MCU…?

Published

on

The rumor mill has been up and down about the return of Marvel’s most popular vampire hunter, Blade. Wesley Snipes over the years has expressed interest in returning to the property but A lot has changed in the world of comic book film, since the release of ‘Blade’ back in 1998. The Blade trilogy has grossed over $415 mil world wide. Which by modern day standards amounts to about an opening weekend average per film. With that being said, the day walker has been widely regarded as a necessary and missing piece to the MCU.

 

With Marvel’s Phase 4 shortly underway, we know that there will be room for other projects to work their way into the new direction of Marvel. Well, it would appear that fans of the franchise just might get their wish! In a recent interview with Vice, Snipes faned the flames for the return of the Day Walker:

“There are a lot of conversations going around right now and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something coming from that world again. We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world and, when people see them, I think they’re only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love the most.”

Now, a conversation with Marvel execs doesn’t really mean a whole lot. I’m sure ideas are tossed their way on a daily basis. But, Snipes went on further to explain how hopeful he is for the return of Blade:

“All the main execs [at Marvel] and my team, we’ve been discussing for the past two years. Everyone’s enthusiastic about it, everybody gets it. But they got a business to run and they gotta square the things that they gotta figure out before they can get to it, I guess. In the meantime, we got a business to run and our own slate of things to do so…But the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now.”

Though exciting to hear, it sounds like even Snipes is skeptical about his chances of returning to the big screen as the vampire killer. Considering two years of conversation hasn’t amounted to much, it’s still exciting to hear, that if Blade returns, we will see a “Day Walker” the likes of which has never been seen!

Loki | Fun And Entertaining As It Feels Wholly Original

Published

on

This will be an entirely spoiler-free review of episodes 1 and 2 of Loki.

The last time we saw the God of mischief was in 2019. Well, it was actually 2012- but in 2019. If you cast your mind back to Avengers: Endgame, we last saw Loki when the Avengers travelled back in time to 2012. The Hulk bursts out of the stairwell causing the Tesseract to slide across the floor, landing right at Loki’s feet who picks it up and escapes in a portal to who knows where. Well, now we get to find out where exactly that version of Loki from 2012 went and what happened to him next.

I won’t divulge any plot details from either of the first two episodes that aren’t featured in the trailer so that when you watch them you can go in completely fresh, but the first two episodes of Loki set the show up in a really fun and dynamic way and it really feels like the start of a good TV show and not just a 6-hour long film.

The show kicks off right where we last saw Loki and he ends up imprisoned by the TVA- the Time Variance Authority. The TVA help make sure the timeline stays intact and Agent Mobius (played by Owen Wilson) and Loki must work together to stop a threat to the timeline.

Even from just the first two episodes, Loki already has such an energetic and mischievous feel to it. It feels very much akin to a crime thriller, but it still has that fun, Marvel tone to it too. Much like WandaVision it also feels quite different to some of the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But it is still rooted in that Marvel style and feel so fans of the MCU will absolutely still enjoy it, but Loki is still bringing something new to the table and it feels fresh and original.

Loki is fun and entertaining as it feels wholly original but it’s also very emotional too. As with any new Marvel project, there will of course be call-backs to moments in previous films and in the character’s past. Whilst perhaps there’s a bit more Thor: The Dark World than you might want the character Loki is such a fascinating and compelling one and in the first two episodes alone we get to see the emotional and sensitive side of him much more.

Tom Hiddleston, as always, is absolutely great as the God of mischief and he looks like he’s having such a fun time playing Loki. Also joining him is Owen Wilson who’s also really good and makes a welcome addition to the MCU. The two of them have a really strong chemistry together and make a good on-screen pairing, and when you add in the nice, fresh production design, overall Marvel have got yet another winner on their hands.

Much like the two other Marvel shows this year, the first couple of episodes are a really intriguing set-up with lots of promise for what’s to follow. It will be interesting to see where Loki goes as a character over the rest of the series; WandaVision saw Wanda’s evolution into the Scarlet Witch and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw Sam Wilson take up the mantle of Captain America so as to where Loki ends up at the end of episode 6 we’ll just have to wait and see. But the first two episodes are hugely entertaining, with the second being my favourite of the two. It’s different, it’s mischievous and if the first two are anything to go by, it looks as if there are lots of surprises and a lot of excitement coming our way over the next few weeks.

Loki starts streaming on Disney+ June 9.
