RUMOR: Marvel Studios' MIDNIGHT SONS Movie Enlists BLADE And LOGAN Writer Michael Green

It seems Marvel Studios may have enlisted a reliable hand to pen the script for its planned (though still not officially-announced) Midnight Sons movie...

Marvel Studios may have taken a big step forward in the development of its planned Midnight Sons movie, as a new rumor is claiming that the project has enlisted a writer.

According to Nexus Point News - who previously broke some significant scoops as DCULeaks - Michael Green has been hired to pen the script.

Green wrote the original script for the long-awaited Blade reboot, and has also worked on the likes of Netflix's Blue Eye Samurai, Kenneth Branagh’s Hercule Poirot trilogy, Blade Runner 2049 and Logan.

While Green would almost certainly be a popular pick, it's important to keep in mind that a Midnight Sons movie has yet to be officially announced - although we'd say Marvel Studios assembling their supernatural characters for a team-up at some point is inevitable.

Multiple characters have been a part of or associated with the team in the comics over the years, but according to another recent rumor from The Cosmic Circus, the MCU's line-up will most likely include: Wong, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Blade, Werewolf by Night, & Man-Thing.

"Other names I’ve heard, from most to least likely, include Black Knight, Scarlet Scarab, Elsa Bloodstone, Dr. Strange, and even Agatha Harkness. But if I had to guess how many members I’d expect for this team lineup, I’d say between 6-9 members."

Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac showed interest in reprising his role(s) for a Midnight Suns project in a recent interview.

"I thought there was an interesting opportunity with Midnight Sons. There’s such interesting characters in there, and now that we’ve set the groundwork with learning who Marc, Steven, Jake are, it could be an interesting opportunity to see him as part of a team and what that dynamic would be. So I think that would be exciting, I think for me, I definitely hope there’s some room to explore that possibility."

As for who could wind up in the director's chair, we've previously heard that both Michael Giacchino (Werewolf By Night) and Fede Alvarez (Alien: Romulus) are on the studio's radar.

What do you make of this rumor? Would you like to see Green pen the screenplay? Which characters do you think should be part of the team? Drop us a comment down below.

"Stephen Strange, AKA Doctor Strange, gathers a loose-knit confederation of mystically powered heroes, originally called the Nine and eventually the Midnight Sons, to serve as mankind's first line of defense against the Mother of Demons, Lilith, and her children, the Lilin."

Wake me up when any official announcement is made. Here's hoping at SDCC or D23.

@MCUKnight11 - both expos have the chance to be great. I'm expecting that we'll know the full movie and tv slate up until the end of the saga after D23

@MCUKnight11 - are you implying that you don’t trust reliable outlets “nexus point news” and “cosmic circus”?

@JFerguson - Just wait until Hollywood reporter, deadline, or Variety say something before believing anything.

@bkmeijer1 - They can't just be great. They have to be the greatest presentations they've ever had because for the first time in their history they will have to do something they have never had to before. Get people back on board and excited. IMO, Ghost rider, Doom casting, and the first details of X-men like director, logo, and release date are the way to go.

@MCUKnight11 - it’s expectations like this that cause dissapointment my dude

This needs to be the greatest thing ever mentality needs to end.

bkmeijer1 - 6/11/2024, 5:29 PM
@MCUKnight11 - absolutely. Think both the MCU and the DCU could go all out at SDCC by revealing full slates for Phase 6 and Chapter 1 respectively, with the former also having the other announcements for D23

Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo.

Yeah, this movie isn't ever getting made.

@Skestra - i hope deadpool sings this in deadpool 3. It would be perfect.
CaptainFlapjaks
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/11/2024, 2:35 PM
Maybe the blade movie is secretly turning into a midnight suns movie instead
Mrtoke
Mrtoke - 6/11/2024, 2:40 PM
@CaptainFlapjaks - That makes more sense than a solo blade movie.
HashTagSwagg
HashTagSwagg - 6/11/2024, 2:51 PM
@Mrtoke - Sounds like a downgrade considering the OG was able to have his own trilogy.
Vigor
Vigor - 6/11/2024, 2:55 PM
@CaptainFlapjaks - yes. Just do that
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/11/2024, 2:56 PM
@CaptainFlapjaks -that’s certainly possible but if true , this sounds like it’s a separate project rather then Blade being redeveloped
Mrtoke
Mrtoke - 6/11/2024, 5:12 PM
@HashTagSwagg - it'd basically be a supernatural GOTG. The MCU has been "real" for the most part. How would they factor in mutants and werewolves and vampires after the Infinity Saga? Multiverse was conjured up to say they're from this universe and whatever. That's lame.
HashTagSwagg
HashTagSwagg - 6/11/2024, 5:31 PM
@Mrtoke - I just look at what the did with Spider-man and picture the most mediocre idea's possible.
CaptainFlapjaks
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/11/2024, 8:20 PM
@TheVisionary25 - it probably is but if blade still has issues they might just decide enough is enough. Its just weird that they got the blade writer to do this when blade doesnt even have a fully ready to shoot completed script. Hope they get their act together
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/11/2024, 8:23 PM
@CaptainFlapjaks - or maybe it does and that rumor is bs?
CaptainFlapjaks
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/11/2024, 8:32 PM
@TheVisionary25 - again. Possible. I hope for ali's sake that it has one.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/11/2024, 8:47 PM
@CaptainFlapjaks - I hope so too.
Mrtoke
Mrtoke - 6/11/2024, 9:01 PM
@HashTagSwagg - yeah mcu Spiderman is the overrated thing they've done. Nothing special about him. Good portrayal though.
CaptainFlapjaks
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/12/2024, 8:43 PM
@Mrtoke - i would have had it that the mutants have always been around. Just in hiding. Either underground or perhaps placed in a pocket dimension where the government would not find them. And now im beginning to believe scarlet witch will play the main role in bringing them in as a reverse house of m moment
Mrtoke
Mrtoke - 6/11/2024, 2:39 PM
Can they focus on just blade for now? Or cancel it? At this point, Ali will be 50 when his first outing as blade is released and 65 when his sequel comes out.

''If I had to guess'' are the magic words when it comes to rumours.

Anyway, I don't see a Midnight Sons happening (soon). Think that it fits the tv medium much better than a movie. It's too many characters, and it has a different audience.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/11/2024, 4:10 PM
@bkmeijer1 - idk about different audience but yeah

The amount of characters like we discussed with Young Avengers does lend itself to a series format since you can flesh them out more etc.
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 6/11/2024, 5:26 PM
@TheVisionary25 - absolutely. Horror does do well on the big screen, but I think it's more accessible on streaming. Especially if it's r-rated

I have a positive feeling that things are back on track at Marvel. XM97 was awesome, the reshoots of CAP 4 are for the best and D&W is going to be a blast. Scale down was the way to go.

MCU ghost rider is probably my most anticipated unannounced character right now.
soberchimera
soberchimera - 6/11/2024, 2:49 PM
They really need to establish Blade and Ghost Rider in the MCU first.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/11/2024, 2:51 PM
Interesting if true…

If they have indeed hired Green for this then they must be happy with his script or draft for Blade (he wrote the most recent iteration that we know of , not the original) which makes me think about the rumors of them starting over or something aren’t true which I hope is the case.

The guy has a good resume from what I know of his work so I’m down for this!!.

Dam, I must be late...I didn't even know this movie was being planned... Blade ain't even got a production start date, so I won't hold my breath

@UniqNo - It’s never been announced, just rumored.

Blade is going to be a one and done or they could make the sequel Blade and the Midnight Suns
