Midnight Sons coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

One of my favorite comic book story arcs is the “Rise of the Midnight Sons”, which saw Doctor Strange overseeing the formation of a team of supernatural heroes – Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze, Morbius, the Nightstalkers (Blade, Hannibal King, and Frank Drake), and Darkhold characters Vicki Montesi, Louise Hastings, and Sam Buchanan – who were brought together to battle Lilith, the Mother of All Demons, and her evil offspring, the Lilin. There have been different variations of the Midnight Sons over the years, with other team members like Daimon Hellstrom, Jennifer Kale, Werewolf by Night, Man-Thing, The Hood, Doctor Voodoo, Elsa Bloodstone, Moon Knight, Iron Fist, Scarlet Spider, Kushala, Magik, Wolverine, and Nico Minoru coming and going. The latest version of the team was even called the Midnight Suns rather than Sons. Now Cosmic Circus has shared the RUMOR that a version of the Midnight Sons might be coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Cosmic Circus recently posted an article looking at the various storylines Marvel is either working on or rumored to be working on. There’s talk of the Kingpin storyline set up in Hawkeye and Echo carrying on into Daredevil: Born Again and the next Spider-Man movie. Captain America: Brave New World will supposedly lead to a huge event centering on the Hulk. Ironheart and Armor Wars are meant to wrap up the “legacy of Tony Stark” storyline. They’re building a Young Avengers team. There’s more to come from the story that began with WandaVision. The X-Men are being worked into the MCU. Some of these are obvious, and you can read more about them at the Cosmic Circus link. Then there’s the Rise of the Midnight Sons.

The report says, “One corner of the MCU that Marvel is keen on exploring for these next few phases is the supernatural corner of their universe. Projects like Moon Knight, Werewolf by Night, and WandaVision have already introduced some critical components for this corner of the MCU. Projects that will continue to explore this corner of the MCU include Blade, Ironheart, Marvel Zombies, Moon Knight season 2, the continuation of Werewolf by Night, and other unannounced projects. This arc aims to unite the heroes of this supernatural corner against a significant threat to humanity, giving rise to the Midnight Sons. Some sources have mentioned that Lilith or Mephisto villains have been considered the big bad of this arc. One source has mentioned that the potential lineup for the Midnight Sons features the current Sorcerer Supreme, Wong, as one of the leaders of the team, alongside Mahershala Ali’s Blade.“

This is exciting news as far as I’m concerned, especially since it was rumored a while back that Mia Goth might be playing Lilith in the Blade movie. (But that project has been given a creative overhaul since then, so we’ll have to wait and see if that idea sticks.) There’s one very important character I would want to see introduced to the MCU during this Midnight Sons story arc: the #1 hero of my childhood, Ghost Rider!
