After a 10 year hiatus, the “Blade” franchise will be returning to the big screen, and actor Wesley Snipes is reportedly coming back to fill the boots of the titular Marvel vampire hunter once again.
So Marvel is continuing where WB left off? Interesting. Blade will definitely be connected to the MCU but will the original films be connected? Make a Ghostrider/Blade crossover and my money is yours!!!!! A rebooted Ghostrider of course.
yes my friend, since they got the right back, Im sure they will be part of the same universe as the rest of the Marvel Characters from Disney. I would love a Ghost/Blade crossover against a real Black Heart or a real Dracula My only concern about Wesley is that he might be too old for the role
Really? I feel as though he's aged very well since Blade 3. Huge props to Marvel for going with Snipes! My only concern is that Blade: Trinity will be part of the MCU. I personally didn't like Thor1, Cap1, or IM2/3 but Blade: Trinity was alot worse than any of Marvel's weakest flicks. Bring back Kris Kristofferson and continue from Blade 2 and i'll be so happy! :D And yeah Dracula & Blackheart deserve a decent flick. They were completely sh*t on in their appearances. I feel bad for Dr. Doom :(
I dont think Wesley is too old for the next Blade movie, just look at Silvester Stallone, that guy still rocks at action movie like Expendable even though he is not getting any younger.. Oh btw wesley was on Expendable 3 film too..
My problem isnt that he's too old but hes aged and he isn't meant to. I know I'm nitpicking but the dudes half vamp Is the dirctor of tne first film available.... it was my best blade marred only by that cg ending
Actually blade ages like A human according to the movies, don't know about the comics. Watch blade 1 for reference.
Actually according to the first blade movie.. he has all their strengths, none of hteir weaknesses, but he still ages like a human though.
My fave of the 3 films was part 2, had some bad cgi but I liked the action and the antagonist was actually pretty cool.
This will be awsome
Good. Please no extra $h!t like Ryan and Jessica.
Well bloody said.
Screw that Ryan should be in it but only if he's playing Wade Wilson
Hmmmmm I like how he's returning although I would of preferred an actor who is British like Blade in the comics and it's set in the UK.
are talking bout idris elba? Well I dont know Snipes to Blade is like RDJ to Ironman
Yeah man, Snipes IS Blade.
I like him but I don't know how someone can be a character who is way different in the comics Least RDJ as Stark nailed it completely
To be fair , Blade was pretty much made to look and feel like Snipes' version , since the 00s . All while somehow keeping his core self
@Baka-akaB what also made it a perfect blend, was snipes natural charisma which added to his blade persona. Since then, Blade in the comics was modeled after Wesley Snipes in looks and character. My favorite line is still "Some Motherf*ckers are always trying to ice skate uphill"
Nope... Snipes as blade forget the comics..
Yeah, bad ass attitude. Blade 2 was dope.
blade 1 and blade 2 were just perfection.
I am sure Snipes will quickly get into shape for the role, he has aged well.
lol he looks like he hasn't aged so much in those years after trinity
Yea and it's crazy how long he was locked up for over taxes.. Government is all fucked up, you can get away with murder but when it comes to taxes........ You're fucked.
Maybe he's a Vampire for real.LOL
The first Blade is still one of my favorite Marvel films ever. I just hope they keep that hard R rating.
Nice...Snipes is Blade. Can't wait for this.
Can we say "Rise of the Midnight Sons". That would be one dandy of a movie. Blade, Ghost Rider, Doctor Strange Oh My!
If inner Moka and blade ever met.Moka would tell him "Know your place blade" XD LOL But seriously i'm stoked that Wesley Snipes will reprise his role.Looking forward to seeing it!
Wesley sure did age well. In the expedables 3 he looked like he took a sip out of the cup of eternal youth.
Good for him, it was thanks to Blade that this whole renaissance in comic book movies were kicked off in the first place. I feel like Blade doesn't get enough credit, nor Snipes.
It's interesting that they made room for Blade, but not Punisher. I rather see Punisher start making some cross over appearances, with thomas Jane of course.
