Robert Pattinson may like Blade, but Blade isn’t returning the love.
Last year, MTV asked Robert Pattinson: Who is your favorite movie vampire of all time?
“I really like Wesley Snipes [in the Blade movies],” Pattinson said. “I think Wesley Snipes is great.”
But Blade, the heroic half-vampire from comic books, has a different attitude toward Pattinson, at least in a story that Marvel’s releasing in August.
Writer Mark Millar, whose comics inspired the movies Kick-Ass and Wanted, is now writing Ultimate Avengers, and the next storyline, starting in August, features Blade. According to Millar’s recent interview on Newsarama, Blade apparently isn’t too keen on Pattinson.
“[There's] a scene where Blade has a dream sequence, a kind of fantasy thing, where he sort of skewers Robert Pattinson,” Millar said with a laugh. “He puts a stake through Robert Pattinson.”
Millar said he couldn’t resist writing the moment. “With Twilight, you know, I kind of hate it, but I kind of love it as well, because my daughter loves it,” he said. “I get some pleasure from it by osmosis, and the fact that my 11-year-old daughter is so obsessed with it, and so are all her friends. I think it’s kind of lovely.
“But I still couldn’t help myself in the comic,” he laughed. “My 40-year-old self just had to get in some kind of comment on Twilight.”
