BLADE 2 SCRIBE SPEAKS
Scribe David Goyer spoke about the upcoming BLADE 2 while at the Comics Continuum recently. Here's what he had to say:
'If you consider T2 and ALIENS two of the best sequels, what they both did in some ways kind of turned the first movie on its head. They didn't just do, 'OK, it's an alien again.' We tried to do something similar. OK, what would be the last thing you would expect Blade to do? Which is to have him to team up with the vampires.
'With this movie, we went in just a completely different direction. Also in this film, we've already dealt with his back story. He's made peace with who he is and we went sort of deeper in vampire mythology. In the first movie, we learned that there's this whole subculture.
'In this movie, we delve even deeper into that, the way the vampires get their money and their language. There's barely any humans in the second movie. Because the vampires are the ones being hunted - and not just by Blade. The Reapers are hunting the vampires in the second film.'
