Wesley Snipes has been claiming for a while now that he’s been talking to Marvel Studios about reprising the role of Blade, and while most of us have dismissed that as the actor looking to simply get some press coverage, there may just be some truth to his claims. Later this year, Marvel were expected

China has finally lifted it's self-imposed 'summer blackout', which means a barrage of big Hollywood blockbusters are about to hit the country like a tsunami. Terminator Genisys debuted to Chinese audiences last weekend, where it zoomed to number one on international charts, giving the movie a second chance at a full blown trilogy after opening to dismal numbers in the states. Now, Marvel is about to unleash Ant-Man on Asian shores, where the movie is sure to be a big hit.
To celebrate it's arrival in China, Marvel has officially released one of the film's biggest and best moments. Yes, the fight between Scott Lang and The Falcon is available for all to see, offering a look at just one of the Avengers cameos the movie contains. Out since July 17th in the states, the presence of Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson was revealed weeks before the movie opened, with »
A mooted Blade reboot’s been in the planning stages for a while, but concrete news detailing active development has been hard to come by. Things looked up when star Wesley Snipes chimed-in enthusiastically on the subject a few weeks back, and now rumours are leaking that a potential film might focus on Blade’s daughter, Fallon Grey.
This is strictly a rumour, but it does make sense for Snipes to hand over the baton at this point. Due to his own legal difficulties, the actor’s star has waned considerably since 2004’s Blade: Trinity, a film also generally regarded as one of the worst comic-book adaptations of all time. 1998’s Blade and 2001’s Blade 2 were solid hits for Snipes, but it does feel like his moment has perhaps passed. Giving him a daughter to train would allow the actor to bid farewell, whilst pushing the series in a progressive new direction. »

It's been more than a full decade since we last saw the vampire-hunting daywalker known as Blade on the silver screen - but if new rumors are to be believed, then the character may soon be making a comeback. But rather than a movie following the incarnation fans are familiar with from the Wesley Snipes films, it appears that a new movie about the hero could actually center on his daughter. It's been previously revealed that Marvel Comics is launching a new series following the adventures of Blade's offspring, but Bleeding Cool is reporting that issues are being delayed because the comic is being seen as "extremely important by the bean counters, and the multi-media folk" at the company. According to the site's sources, the reason for this is because Marvel Studios is now planning a new Blade film and want the lead character to be the vampire hunter's daughter. »
Earlier this summer Blade star Wesley Snipes made some headlines when he mentioned having "really productive" meetings with Marvel about a project he wouldn't name. Naturally everyone made the leap that Snipes must be talking about starring in a new Blade movie, or perhaps the character making an appearance in one of the approximately 10,000 Marvel TV shows currently in the works. And now a rumor has emerged that would back that up, but with a bit of a twist. According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel Comics was going to launch a new print series that would focus on Blade's daughter. Here's their description of the comic. Fallon Grey is a sixteen year old girl from rural Oregon. Nominated for Prom Queen, Captain of the debate team, most popular girl in her class...

Back before the Marvel Cinematic Universe became the sprawling, successful behemoth it is today, one of the better examples (at least in the first two movies) of movies based on the comic book company’s characters was 1998's Blade. With Marvel now in possession of the rights, there’s every chance it’ll go ahead with a new film set in that universe, but according to Bleeding Cool’s Rich Johnston, the main character might be someone new – Blade’s daughter, Fallon Grey. We’d caution you at this point that this falls strictly in the world of rumours, since the information comes from Johnston’s undefined sources. But the comic book featuring Blade’s vampire-hunting spawn, which had been planned for an October release, has now been delayed. The reason? Nothing confirmed, but higher powers within the company – those in control of other Marvel media – are seeing the character »
There’s been much ado about a potential return of Blade on the big screen over the last several months. During July’s San Diego Comic Con, Blade himself, Wesley Snipes, said that he was in talks with Marvel about a new movie. Snipes played the character in three “Blade” movies, the last of which “Blade: Trinity” was released eleven-years ago in 2004. Bleeding Cool (via Coming Soon) now reports that Marvel Studios is actively crafting the blueprint for a new “Blade” film utilizing the framework of a new comic that focuses on the vampire superhero and his newly-created daughter. The comic was planned as part of the “All-New, All-Different Marvel,” relaunch and was set for release this October. It has since been pushed back, and Bleeding Cool contends that the decision was made by the Marvel higher-ups who are looking to craft a cinematic return for the character based on the comic’s storyline. »

Well, if a new rumour from Bleeding Cool is to be believed, it seems Marvel is in development on a new Blade movie, although it will feature on the Daywalker’s daughter Fallon Grey, who is set to feature alongside Blade in the relaunched ‘All-New, All-Different’ comic book series.
According to the site, the potential movie is the reason that the upcoming Blade comic book has been delayed from its original October release date. Here’s the official description for the series:
Fallon Grey is a sixteen year old girl from rural Oregon. Nominated for Prom Queen, Captain of the debate team, most popular girl in her class. But there is another side to Fallon. A feeling like there’s something more inside of her. »

Remember not too long ago when Wesley Snipes was spilling the beans about meeting with Marvel Studios, and the topic of their conversations seemed to be the actor stepping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in order to reprise his role as Blade? Well, it seems as if Snipes may have really been onto something if the rumors of his participation in the McU turn out to be true. Only they don't seem to be... Read More »

Over the course of Comic-Con, while promoting his new NBC series The Player, Blade star Wesley Snipes confirmed that he'd had meetings with Marvel about reprising the character. Now comes word that, while this may be true, the next incarnation of Blade on the big screen may not focus on Wesley Snipes's vampire hunter. Instead, it will focus on Marvel comics new female hunter.
Marvel is set to launch a new version of the Blade comic books that focuses on Blade's daughter, though they have been delayed. Bleeding Cool claims this delay is in effect because Marvel and Disney want the publication to fall in line with what they have planned on the big screen. What was once known simply as Blade 4 has suddenly become very important to those at Marvel in terms of multi-media, and the renewed interest is partially due to the overwhelming response Wesley Snipes »
In 2013, Marvel got back the rights to Blade. Since then, there have been on-again, off-again rumblings of a new Blade movie or TV show — some of it coming directly from Blade himself, Wesley Snipes. Now a new report adds an interesting wrinkle to the ongoing speculation. Rumor has it the next Blade movie won’t […]

Talk of a new Blade movie stirred up again when Marvel regained the rights to their iconic daywalker. While no hard and fast plans have been put in motion, it’s not out of the question for the comic studio behemoth to have renewed interest in the franchise. The huge success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe twinned with the Sony deal reintroducing Spider-Man into that world is proof enough. Marvel Studios knows how to do its own material justice – and Wesley Snipes has even batted the idea around in several interviews.
According to a source over at Bleeding Cool, the studio is well aware of the comics’ popularity and plans to reboot it for the big screen. Except, with one significant change. Instead of following the exploits of Blade himself, he’d get backburnered in favor of his own daughter. Fallon Grey assumes the Blade mantle in Marvel’s rebooted universe, »

When we found out Marvel had regained the rights to the Blade character, excitement began to build about the possibility of seeing another movie or a TV series featuring the popular vampire-slayer. Wesley Snipes even hinted that he'd been having discussions with the studio about reprising the role, though in later interviews he seemed to play that down - maybe because he was told to? Bleeding Cool has heard from a "well-connected source" that the Marvel higher-ups have begun to take notice of the popularity of the character, and see the potential in producing another big-screen outing... with one twist: the site also hears that it would be the new Blade, Fallon Grey, that the movie would focus on. In the new comic series Fallon's father is also a prominent character, so there's every chance Snipes really is in talks to return in more of a secondary, mentor-like capacity. Nothing concrete for now, »
Now, Bleeding Cool (via Cbm) reports that according to a source of theirs, Marvel has taken notice of the popularity of the character and are considering another big-screen outing.
There would be a twist though - the character wouldn't be based around the classic Blade which Wesley Snipes portrayed in the previous films. Instead, the story would focus on Fallon Grey, his daughter from the comics.
Wesley Snipes has previously hinted that he's been having discussions with the studio about reprising his role - if this report is true it would make sense, seeing Snipe return in a mentor-style capacity. »

The Marvel Age of Movies is an ongoing feature that will profile every film produced by Marvel Studios from 1998 to the present. What started as a production company became a Hollywood powerhouse in its own right, and this column will chart the course of that unprecedented success beginning with adaptations across a handful of studios to the creation of a large and expansive cinematic universe involving dozens of characters. Marvel changed comic book movies, and it changed Hollywood in the process. This is the story of the Marvel Age of Movies.
Blade wasn’t supposed to be the big comic book movie of 1998. A little over a year before, all eyes were on Superman Lives, the Tim Burton adaptation of the Man of Steel starring Nicolas Cage as Superman/Clark Kent. But then they closed up shop in the wake of overwhelming fan criticism.
It was more or less the »

Wesley Snipes is a gracious man ... instead of having regrets about passing on playing Lucious Lyon ... he's got nothing but love for the show and its star. Snipes was walking into Bootsy Bellows Tuesday night and told our photog there's no torment over turning down the role that eventually went to Terrence Howard ... and he'd even be open to a guest spot on the show. Not sure where Snipes will find the time ... he's got »
