If the creators of Underworld had their way we could have had a Blade/Underorld crossover. That's right Blade and Selene would have been kicking vampire ass on the big screen.
When it comes to vampire slayers, the list of iconic names is rather short. There’s obviously Van Helsing, Buffy, and D but you’d have to venture into serious fandom to find people who can name folk like Peter Vincent or Rayne. But in the middle of those two categories are the vampire hunters who have attained some measure of pop culture success. It’s here that we find Selene of Underworld fame and Blade, the titular character of his own series.
Now, there’s apparently been a movement to get these two film franchises to do a crossover, much like how A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th came together in Freddy vs. Jason. That idea wasn’t just something fans were eager to see. It turns out that the creators behind the Underworld films wanted to see that happen as well, which is why they explored that possibility. Alas, they ran into the biggest of roadblocks, according to star Kate Beckinsale, who told audiences at a New York Comic Con panel, “No. We had that idea. No. [Marvel is] doing something with ‘Blade’.”

During and interview The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman, once again teased the end of the popular drama. He revealed that the series and comics will have different endings.
Kirkman said the following, according to The Wrap:
“I hope the show ends and the comics keep going. The comic was the comic before the show, so I try to maintain that. I know how I want to end ‘The Walking Dead’…I don’t want it on the show before I get it in my comic. If the show were to ever end at any point and the comic was still going, I would have to sit down with Scott and pretend I have no idea how to end it and then work with him to try and come up with a new ending.”
The Walking Dead will premiere its new season on October 23.
