“She worked with her father, Blade, mostly as an intelligence operative,” they continued. “Eventually Blade’s daughter was bitten. and that awakens her vampire powers.”

“Well apparently Tariq knew this script was a loser and did his best to change it before filming began,” the source continued. “[But] it all went to hell when Kevin Feige refused to change anything and so the director left the project.”

The Daywalker’s disastrous direction was also corroborated by Doomcock’s second source, who is said to have been “on the set” and allegedly could prove that she personally read the original script.
