In this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, Marvel movie head honcho Kevin Feige casually dropped the news that the movie rights for the Punisher, Blade and Ghost Rider have returned to Marvel. Awesome.

Feige indicates he's in no rush to make new movies for the characters, partially because Marvel has enough on their plate, and partially because no one's really clamoring for the return of these characters thanks to their lackluster original movies (with the exception of Blade II). Add these guys to Daredevil, who Marvel also recently got back, and the Cinematic Universe got a whole lot more crowded.

It's a shame Marvel still doesn't have Spider-Man and Wolverine back, because we're halfway to the greatest Fantastic Four reboot of all time.

None of this means anything without HOWARD THE DUCK.

Then they'd be in a position to bring along Man-Thing, make the best Marvel Knights movie you've ever seen.

And for the record, the first Blade was the best one. The rest of you are just trying to ice-skate uphill.

(In all seriousness, I would rather see team-up movies with these characters, rather than solo films. I don't want Ghost Rider 3, I want Ghost Rider VS Blade! On the other hand, you know that when these movies get re-cast, they'll get total nobody's. We're not getting the likes of Cage and Snipes again, for better or for worse. They'll just be a bunch of young punks I've never heard of, from TV shows I don't watch.)
