Marvel’s got the Blade, Punisher and Ghost Rider movie rights back
In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, Marvel movie head honcho Kevin Feige casually dropped the news that the movie rights for the Punisher, Blade and Ghost Rider have returned to Marvel. Awesome.
Feige indicates he’s in no rush to make new movies for the characters, partially because Marvel has enough on their plate, and partially because no one’s really clamoring for the return of these characters thanks to their lackluster original movies (with the exception of Blade II). Add these guys to Daredevil, who Marvel also recently got back, and the Cinematic Universe got a whole lot more crowded.
