Not too long ago there was a rumour doing the rounds of Blade making a comeback as a news series. Then there was news circulating that Marvel are keen to make a new movie, based on the latest Blade comic book series. Well Wesley Snipes has most recently spoke to Huffington Post and once again teased about returning as the Daywalker.
There’s always a possibility, you know. It’s in Marvel’s hands. They’re controlling the pace and the flow with that. Conversations have been good. They see the value in it. We see the value in it. I’m still in shape enough and fit enough to handle the role. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t really know what’s going to happen to it yet.
Off the back of the slew of hit movies Marvel have been producing, I am sure they would make a fantastic Blade movie. Although to be honest I would prefer to see this character developed for the small screen. With the amazing production quality we have seen being used to make series and with studios getting more risky with their stories and visuals, they could do so much with this story.
Regardless of which direction they decide to go, it will great to have Snipes back to his sword-wielding escapades and I’m sure he wouldn’t mind the work either. Now I just need to try and get this great theme song out of my head!
