Wesley Snipes Is Interested In Making BLADE 4 Or Being Another Character In The MCU

Wesley Snipes is up to return to the silver screen as Blade…or really anybody in the MCU for that matter. The actor recently spoke to THR and said he’s down for whatever Marvel may want to do with him, be it reprising his old character or casting him as a new one:

I am very much open to all of the possibilities. If Blade 4 comes along, that is a conversation we can have. And there are other characters in the Marvel universe that, if they want to invite me to play around with, I am with that too. I think the fans have a hunger for me to revision the Blade character, so that could limit where they could place me as another character in that universe.

Kevin Feige Explains Where BLADE Currently Stands With Marvel

One of the first non-terrible modern comic book movies to be made was 1998’s Blade with Wesley Snipes. Most people tend to credit Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, but it was really Blade that started the journey of modern superhero films. That movie was badass!

Some people would love to see Blade make a comeback at Marvel Studios! There’s no doubt that they’d do something awesome with the character. Apparently, a while back the producers of the Underworld franchise tried to set up a crossover film that would include Blade. Marvel told them no because they were planning something with the character. During a recent interview with CinemaBlend, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked about this, and he explained where Blade currently stands with the studio, saying: Continue reading

Marvel Bringing Moon Knight, Ghost Rider and Blade to Their Netflix Lineup?

It’s been a rough week for Marvel’s television properties, with the news that ABC would not only be cancelling the well-received Agent Carter due to its disappointing ratings, but also would be passing on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff series, Marvel’s Most Wanted. And let’s not forget those comments from S.H.I.E.L.D. star Chloe Bennet, who told fans that Marvel doesn’t acknowledge the events of the series because the studio “doesn’t seem to care” about the show.

But now comes some good news, in the form of a new rumor about the future of Marvel’s Netflix offerings. Continue reading

Tons of Famous Movie Characters Meet at Hell’s Club in This Magnificent Mashup

Editor Antonio Maria De Silva has created something magical with Hell’s Club, a mashup that features tons of characters across movie history interacting in the same fictional club. This is a Twilight Zone-style place where Ewan McGregor’s young version of Obi-Wan Kenobi can walk in and make eye contact with Ewan McGregor’s character from Trainspotting, or Tom Cruise in Collateral can catch the eye of Tom Cruise from Cocktail behind the bar. It’s a place where John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever can bust a move on the dance floor while John Travolta from Pulp Fiction watches from above, and where Blade fights The Terminator for no reason whatsoever. It doesn’t make the slightest bit of sense, but it’s pretty awesome! I don’t normally post this kind of thing, but I feel it’s a must-watch, so here we go!

Wesley Snipes On ‘Blade’

Wesley Snipes brings a lot of legacy to the San Diego confab today and not just because he was here last year as one of the ensemble of The Expendables 3. The actor debuted as Blade back in 1998 when some of those in the current crop of Marvel movies were still in short pants. That vampire hunting character and the trio of pics that Snipes fronted as Blade will certainly be on the minds of many fans in Room 6A of the SD Convention Center for The Player panel this morning.

Before today’s SDCC appearance, Snipes chatted with me about his new NBC series from the team behind that other Comic-Con regular The Blacklist as well as the possibility of more Blade, other potential Marvel opportunities and some more action he has planned. Continue reading
