EW is reporting that Oscar-winning writer and producer of 12 Years a Slave, John Ridley, is teaming up with Marvel Studios for a new superhero television project on ABC.
Details are being kept under wraps, but the article does make the claim that the deal involves reinventing an existing Marvel superhero character or property for the network. It should be noted that this project is not the same as the rumored Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff series, but rather an entirely new project.
With a vast amount of characters currently existing in the Marvel Universe, the options are limitless, but one character that could make sense would be Blade. Marvel reacquired the rights to the character back in 2013 and since then there has been no news on a resurrection of the property. Could now be the time to see the Vampire hunter make his return?
