Wesley Snipes Talks Blade's Future and Other Marvel Projects

10 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Even though we haven't seen the character in over a decade, it sounds as if Wesley Snipes is interested in bringing Blade back to the big screen. In an interview with Deadline at San Diego Comic-Con, Snipes was asked about the future of Blade and a recent meeting he had with Marvel. "The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things," Snipes said. "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." Unlike a few of their other high profile characters, Marvel does own the film and TV rights to Blade. However, let's not celebrate just yet. The current Marvel Cinematic Universe films don't exactly match the tone of the uber-violent, R-rated Blade films. That being said, he could always show »

"Blade 4" Is A "Possibility" Says Snipes

10 July 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Before "Spider-Man," before "X-Men," it was 1998's "Blade" that really ushered in the current wave of successful comic book movie adaptations. Even though it has been more than ten years since Wesley Snipes slipped on his Daywalker outfit in "Blade: Trinity," the actor is still inexorably identified with the role.

With Marvel Studios now in control of the character again, there's always the possibility of the vampire hunter returning. Appearing at Comic Con this week, Snipes was asked if he would return to the role and surprisingly he revealed to Deadline that Marvel themselves have been considering the possibility:

"The project 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."

Wesley Snipes Met with Marvel About Blade 4

10 July 2015 4:22 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When Wesley Snipes was released from prison and "Blade" rights reverted back to Marvel, fans started wondering whether there was a chance to see Snipes return for "Blade 4." In a new interview with Deadline, the actor confirmed that he recently had a meeting with Marvel about just that. "The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things," he said. "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." The first "Blade" movie was released in 1998 and grossed $131 million worldwide. The sequel followed in 2002, grossing $155 million on a budget of $54 million. "Blade Trinity" was then released in 2004 and earned $129 million on a budget of $65 million. So a fourth film with an aging star seems incredibly unlikely to happen. »

Blade 4: Wesley Snipes confirms Marvel talks

9 July 2015 10:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel and Wesley Snipes have met up about a possible further Blade adventure. Snipes holds the door open for further Marvel work too...

Since Blade: Trinity, er, 'disappointed', there's been little more than the occasional murmur about a possible fourth Blade movie. Wesley Snipes' ability to make movies was curtailed a little at one point afterwards, due to the fact that he was in prison, but he's been ramping up his career this past year or two.

His next project is The Player, an incoming TV series. And while promoting that, he was asked what the position was on Blade 4. "The project 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", he said. »

The Future Of Blade, According To Wesley Snipes

9 July 2015 6:26 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite making his cinematic debut before the modern superhero movie craze, Blade’s been missing from the big screen for a while. Wesley Snipes last portrayed the character in 2004’s Blade: Trinity, and other than the short-lived Spike TV series, he hasn’t seen live-action since. While Marvel later got the rights to Blade back from New Line Cinema in 2011, they haven’t announced any plans to use him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Snipes has expressed enthusiasm about doing a Blade 4, and now it appears he’s talked with the House of Ideas about Blade’s future. In an interview with Deadline, Snipes mentioned that he has met with Marvel about bring Blade back, but the character’s status is still uncertain at this point.

Wesley Snipes Says Blade 4 'A Possibility'

9 July 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

“It’s absolutely clear that there’s still a market for Blade and we could bring it back,” Wesley Snipes told Empire last year. "If we had it we would do it." The people that do have it, of course, are Marvel, and while a new Snipes-starring Blade is no nearer happening, there's a slight update to the saga this morning in the news that Snipes has at least been into the Marvel offices for a chat. "The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things," Snipes tells Deadline at Comic-Con. "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."And if Blade 4 doesn't end up happening, Snipes says some other involvement with the Marvel Cinematic Universe "is a possibility too. »

'Blade 4' Could Happen with Marvel and Wesley Snipes

9 July 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wesley Snipes just got out of his Comic-Con panel Q&A for the upcoming NBC series, The Player. And while it is a decidedly different kind of drama, one that might not necessarily play to the Comic-Con crowd, fans turned out to hear if Wesley Snipes has any plans to return as his iconic Vampire slayer, Blade. The property reverted back to Marvel over a year ago, and after starring in three sequels, kicking off in 1998 with the original Blade, many have wondered if the actor will return to the franchise. Well, that is as yet undecided. But it sounds like Wesley Snipes, who left the spotlight for a spell after being arrested and jailed for Tax fraud, does want to return. He tells Deadline that talks for Blade 4 have in fact happened.

When Wesley Snipes was released from prison, it seemed like the question on everyone's mind was whether he would be up for a fourth film as Blade.

Wesley Snipes Met With Marvel About Playing Blade Again

9 July 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Many attribute the success of the contemporary superhero genre to Bryan Singer’s X-Men, which hit theaters in 2000 and helped usher in a new wave of comic book adaptations. However, the first successful Marvel Comics adaptation was Blade, which arrived in 1998 and starred Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire superhero.

The Blade franchise, while initially highly successful, came to a screeching halt with 2004’s Blade Trinity (and certainly wasn’t helped by the terrible 2006 series starring Sticky Fingaz), and since then the rights to the character have reverted back to Marvel Studios. We’ve heard rumors that the studio could be bringing the character to the darker, bloodier Netflix side of the McU, and expected that the role would be recast. According to Snipes himself, however, there’s a chance that he may don Blade’s fangs again after all.

Wesley Snipes brings a lot of legacy to the San Diego confab today and not just because he was here last year as one of the ensemble of The Expendables 3.
