Wesley Snipes Wants To Do Another Blade

Wesley Snipes lets it be known he wants to return to the billion dollar franchise with Blade, and he also offers he thinks they can do it better today.

Snipes was at Comic-Con for The Expendables 3, and while there, MTV caught up with the actor and asked if he would like a return to Blade.

Snipes offered:

Yeah. Yeah. I’d be open to it. I think we have some stones left unturned, and there's some latitude for us to build on. I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now. Some of the things we did in the early Blade franchise were experimental, and now they have become customary in the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations.

Blade kicked off in 1998, written by David S. Goyer, spawning two sequels with the movie and merchandising gross coming close to bringing in a billion dollars.

The film rights to Blade have since reverted back to Disney/Marvel, with David Goyer stating back in January of 2013 that he thinks it will eventually be rebooted. 

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also confirmed a while back that Marvel has Blade as well as Ghost Rider and Punisher, but he did offer they need to find the right time to move forward with them.

Who knows? Maybe Wesley Snipes will create some interest and Marvel will move forward with their horror genre, perhaps with Doctor Strange leading the way. Blade was associated with the Nightstalkers, a team of heroes taking on things that go bump in the night. That could work.
