Marvel Bites: 'The Wasp' Won't Be In 'Avengers: Infinity War,' Update On 'Blade' Plans and More

Oct 10, 2016

With so many Marvel movies in the works in some form or another, it's not easy to keep track of them all. Well, we're here to help, and we've got a few updates on some future movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:


Marvel Has Plans for Blade  

We can apparently be certain Marvel has some plan for the return of Blade, according to Kate Beckinsale. How is she an authority on the property or anything in the MCU? She plays a part-vampire character similar to Blade in the Underworld movies and since fans have been calling for a crossover, she's been privy to whether or not that could happen. She was at New York Comic Con over the weekend promoting Underworld: Blood Wars, and again she was asked about Underworld's Selene meeting Blade. She answered, "No. We had that idea. No. They’re busy. They’re doing something with Blade.” [via /Film]


No Wasp in Avengers: Infinity War

Evangeline Lilly confirmed to Blastr that she and her Marvel character, Hope van Dyne, will not be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War, because "they really want to preserve that reveal for Ant-Man and the Wasp." The reveal she's referring to is the origin of van Dyne taking on the role of The Wasp. Infinity War arrives on May 4, 2018, and that Ant-Man sequel arrives just two months later on July 6. Then, as she says, Lilly will appear as The Wasp in the following Avengers movie due out the next year. Watch the interview below [via Blastr].


Trippy Doctor Strange Featurette 

With less than a month until the release of Doctor Strange, promotion of the movie is ramping up. The latest must-see video is a featurette spotlighting the effort to adapt Steve Ditko's psychedelic comic drawings from the 1960s to the screen and how we have the technology now to make it happen. Watch below.
