You read that right. At San Diego Comic Con in an interview with Deadline, Wesley Snipes confirmed he’s met with Marvel about potentially returning as the eponymous vampire hunter. “The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things,” Snipes told Deadline. “I don’t know where it’s on their schedule at this point, that hasn’t been decided. I guess it’s still up in the air.”
Even if Snipes does not reprise Blade, he said he’d be open to another Marvel role. “I’ve always been a fan of these pieces and adaptations and I’d be nice to be a part of the family again,” Snipes said.
Personally, I would love for Snipes to return as Blade. Much like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Snipes has become synonymous with Blade. Although the actor is 52, there’s no reason he couldn’t return, unless Marvel wanted a younger actor. Nonetheless, whenever Marvel decides to revisit Blade, I think the best bet would be to give it the Daredevil treatment. A grittier Netflix series would do the character more justice as opposed to a feature length film. For now though, all we can do as fans is wait.
