Ghost Rider And Blade Are Back With Marvel, But The Studio Seem Gun Shy

Check out these clippings from today’s Entertainment Weekly, taken from their expansive Marvel feature. Much is Iron Man-centric, but there is some talk of other characters under the studio’s umbrella.

Seems pretty clear that Marvel want to put some ground between their own movies and earlier, “failed” incarnations of these characters. I’d argue that they don’t necessarily need to – The Avengers wiped all sorts of Hulk mistakes from memory.

UPDATE: For the record, I’m a very, very big fan of Blade 2. I really do love it. I wasn’t trying to imp,y otherwise, but I think we can probably – mostly – agree that the Blade series ended on a real low.
