Has it really been 13 years since we last saw Wesley Snipes tearing it up in a Blade film? Well, we feel it’s about time for the character to make a return, don’t you think? Good news, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige wants to bring back the vampire superhero to the big screen.
Feige recently spoke with the guys over at JoBlo, where he revealed a possibility of a new Blade film in the future. No word on whether Snipes will be involved or not, but we sure as hell hope he comes back.
“We think it would be cool. Someday. My tenure at Marvel started 17 years ago, and there were two things that sort of launched the modern era. One was X-Men, which was the first thing that people said, “Oh, there’s life here.” But a few years before that, there was Blade. A character nobody had heard of at all, had only appeared in a few issues of Tomb of Dracula or something, turned into a big franchise. That was always a great lesson for me, where you go, “It doesn’t matter how well known the character is, it matters how cool the movie is.” Which, many years later, would be the reason we do Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange. I think Blade is a legacy character now, and I think it would be fun to do something with him one day.”
Sounds like a dream come true for fans wishing to see another Blade entry, especially if it’s on the big screen. We will keep you posted on this breaking news story.
