[Movies] David S. Goyer Discusses Blade’s Influence on Comic Book Films
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.07.2013



- David S. Goyer recently spoke about Blade being the beginning of the modern day comic book films and more. Here are the highlights…

On Blade Being The Beginning of The Modern Day Comic Book Movie: I know, I feel like people have forgotten that a little bit. It's like, "Batman Begins was the first one." I'm like, "No, I'd kind of put Blade there first." Prior to that, I also think it was the first time a comic book figure had been taken seriously. Prior to that, you had Dick Tracy, you know what I mean? Things that were just all primary colors and that was people's perceptions of what a comic book movie should be.

I also know that Blade was the reason why Chris [Nolan] approached me for Batman Begins. He'd seen Blade, but he also read my script for Blade and read Zig Zag, which was a little independent film that I had done. There's a reason why he cited Blade as one of the films that he thought would be helpful for adapting Batman.

Will We See a new Version of Blade on the Big Screen?: Sure. Disney-Marvel owns Blade again. Blade is not the most Disney-fied character, but look, he was a tertiary character; very few people knew who he was. Those films, worldwide, have made a half billion dollars and spawned video games and action figures and things like that. So I think it would be crazy not to see another iteration of Blade at some point.

On Wanting Another Shot at the Character: I don't know. I've done so much Blade. [Editor's Note: Goyer also was behind Blade: The Series] At a certain point you're just like, "How many Blade stories can I tell?" We were scraping the bottom of the barrel even in the first iteration. It was a little hard. Probably not, but you never know.
