Deadline have reported that Wesley Snipes has met Marvel HQ to discuss bringing his iconic character, Blade back and becoming part of the Marvel Universe. Marvel have already acquired the rights to any future Blade productions – so if we get a Blade 4, and it looks like we are, then it’s going to be set in the Marvel Universe.
Here is what Mr Snipes had to say on the subject…
“Blade 4 is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things. 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. That meeting centered on returning as Blade, but may have offered up other opportunities as well.”
I am looking forward to hearing more about this. I am a huge fan of Blade, but not of all the movies. There is so much that can be done with such an awesome character. I hope Marvel take him down a dark path and we get some hardcore R rated vampire slaying.
