Blade was as much a “minor character” And then there’s the guardians of the galaxy

Blade is currently an Avenger and also a member of Strikeforce (Avenger off-shoot team) so even he's getting a bit of exposure at the moment. Also no doubt to build up interest in the character.

No argument there, but the difference is that Blade has already been introduced in mainstream media. Morbius, as Burn said, has only been pushed in comics mainly, and I myself only know of him from his story in the 90s Spiderman cartoon, which was also used to introduce Blade.

How is there any difference here?

Prior to the live action Blade films, The only main stream media that Blade appeared in was that very same cartoon, Both characters are pretty much getting the same treatment

Blade already has a series of live action films, as well as a short-lived live TV series. Morbius doesn't. Yet. So if Blade gets another big-screen treatment, the character will already be more familiar to general moviegoers.

So again, what’s the difference, they are both following the same steps

Maybe I misunderstood what you were originally trying to say

I'm not sure how much clearer I can make it. Blade already had a run in a series of live action movies starring Wesley Snipes, so therefore he's more well-known to general moviegoers. As far as the general audience is concerned, Morbius is a new(er) character. Those of us who followed Spider-man close know about him, but I guarantee you that if you stop 100 random people on the streets of a city and ask them about Blade and Morbius, a lot more of them will know about Blade. That's the difference. Notoriety, which might factor into a difference in box office. I'm stating this referring to the event that Blade might get another turn in the live action movies, this time as part of the Spider-man universe, and thus the MCU.

I went through your post several times thinking maybe I misunderstood you but I really Don’t think so

Earlier you said Morbius is such a minor character it's surprising he gets his own movie.

I pointed out that Michael isn’t the first minor Marvel character[(s) to get a film, citing Blade and the Guardians as examples

You replied but the difference is that Blade has already been introduced in mainstream media. Morbius, as Burn said, has only been pushed in comics mainlqqy

And as I pointed out, there is no difference here
When the movies starring Wesley Snipes were made , the chaaracter of Blade had not really entered the public mainstream media eye.....at that time the character of Blade was not well known outside those like us, the character had really only been (as you pointed out about Morbius) been Published in comics mainly and had an appearance (or 2?) in the 90s Spiderman cartoon.

so therefore I don’t understand your surprise about a minor character like Morbius getting a film, the same exact thing was done with Blade

No difference at all

The explanation is in my previous post. I'm talking about in the event a new Blade movie is released NOW or in the NEAR FUTURE. Not BACK THEN. If a new Blade movie follows Morbius, as the characters were connected in the Spider-man cartoon, he won't be considered a minor character, because he's had a live action series in theaters already. People will know about him due to previous exposure. That's the difference between Blade and Morbius. I hope that's clear enough. Like you said, you must have misunderstood, and focused on the wrong part of my point.

I must have, thanks for clearing it up

The thing I’m wondering in all this is the connection to the MCU, half guessing it going to be a “soft” connection if you get my meaning

You mean that Blade won't appear with other main MCU characters?

My biggest question about Morbius is whether they keep the suction cups on his hands or if he'll use fangs the whole time. :lol:

I think he meant morbius rather then Blade and he's right about it being a soft connection as I think while this film will reference the MCU, I don't think Leto will appear in any other MCU (which is good for me)

Yes, Pretty much this

To be more precise I think all the characters that fall under the Sony banner will have a soft connection to the MCU.....and there might be a few References to MCU events but that even those references might be a bit vague
