Goyer Reveals Details on Blade TV Series

Writer/director David Goyer tells whether Wesley Snipes will be back, when will the show air, plus comments on Flash and a Batman Begins sequel.
Batman Begins writer David S. Goyer spoke to SCI FI Wire about producing the hour-long television series based on his Blade movies for Spike TV which will begin airing next year in June.

"We're doing a Blade TV show," Goyer said in an interview at CBS' fall press preview in Beverly Hills, Calif., where he was promoting his upcoming SF series Threshold. "I'm co-writing the pilot with [comic writer] Geoff Johns, and it's going to be Spike's first dramatic show, and it's going to air next June."

Goyer said that the network has ordered 13 episodes of the new series, which will center on the vampire-killing hero of the Blade films, which Goyer also wrote.

"It'll be Blade, but it's different than the movies, that's all I can say," Goyer said, adding that a new actor will be hired to portray the iconic character, who was played by Wesley Snipes in the movies.

In addtion, Goyer is writing a screenplay for a movie adaptation of the legendary DC Comics character The Flash.

"I'm writing it as we speak," he said.

"I'm the co-show runner [on Threshold], so I go back and forth. I was there for about three hours today, then I was working on The Flash, [then] we had a little Batman meeting. I multitask."

The meeting was to discuss the expected sequel to Batman Begins, which Goyer wrote for director Christopher Nolan. As for the sequel, he said simply: "We had a meeting. That's all I can say."
