The last time Wesley Snipes played Marvel’s Vampire Hunter was nearly 12 years ago in Blade: Trinity. With Marvel getting the rights back and rumors circulating that Snipes was set to reprise his role, it left fans wondering what was next for Blade. Today during an interview at SDCC Wesley Snipes shed some light on the future of Blade.
When asked if he would be bringing the Vampire Hunter back Snipes said the following
While it’s great to hear he’s talking with Marvel about returning some of you might think he’s too old to play Blade. If you’re one of those people who wouldn’t want Snipes to return as Blade, but instead want him to play a different role in the MCU you’re in luck. During the interview Snipes spoke on the possibility that he could wind up playing an entirely different role in the Marvel universe.
I think Snipes still has the chops to deliver a good performance and watching The Expendables 3 showed me he’s still capable of fast paced action sequences, so I think he could still pull it off. What do you guys think? Would you want Snipes to return as Blade on the big screen or should they cast someone else? Sound off in the comments!
