Wesley Snipes talks Blade return at Comic-Con: 'I'd love to go back'

28 July 2014 2:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Wesley Snipes has said that he is "open" to a fourth Blade film.

The actor stated that he would be keen to return to the role of Marvel Comics' vampire slayer at San Diego Comic-Con.

He claimed that the New Line Cinema trilogy has proven influential on Marvel Studios' more recent superhero films.

"I'd be open to it," he told MTV. "I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things 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 parts of the franchise were experimental and now they've become customary in a lot of the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations. »

Wesley Snipes Talks Blade 4

27 July 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been almost a decade since Blade: Trinity put a stake through heart of Welsey Snipe’s badass vampire killer, effectively halting future franchise installments, but that doesn’t mean Snipes is happy with leaving the role dead and buried. Blade was one of the first big comic book adaptations to kickstart the whole superhero genre, along with the massively successful X-Men films, and now that Snipes has cleared up most of his personal problems, it seems like a perfect time to start talking about a possible Blade 4.

Sure, Snipes is a modest 51 years old as of now, looking a little more aged than the comic book form of Blade, but he’s got a damn fine pitch that would please pretty much every horror fan if it were to become a reality. While talking to EW about the possibility of another Blade film, he revealed the following story »

Wesley Snipes Wants to Chase ‘Twilight’ Kids in ‘Blade 4′

26 July 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In the current age of superhero and comic book films routinely dominating the box office, it’s sometimes hard to remember a time when that wasn’t the case. Well, one needs only to look back at that long-ago decade known as the 1990s to see just how desolate a wasteland the live-action superhero landscape used to be. While 2000′s X-Men tends to get most of the credit for resurrecting the genre, one other comic book property could also rightfully lay claim to some of that glory: Blade.

Blade may not have been an incredibly massive hit, but it did very respectably, roughly doubling its budget at the box office and earning a large cult following that still ...

Wesley Snipes wants Blade return and Twilight crossover

26 July 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that Blade is back at Marvel Studios, you’d have to assume that there’s absolutely zero chance of the franchise picking up where Blade: Trinity left off, but that has stopped Wesley Snipes from expressing his interest in playing the Daywalker one more time during an interview with MTV (via Cbm) at the San Diego Comic-Con.

“I’d be open to it. I think we’ve got some stones left unturned and there’s some latitude left for us to build on and I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then.

Comic-Con: Wesley Snipes Wants 'Blade 4' to Happen

26 July 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wesley Snipes headed down to San Diego this weekend to promote his action-packed sequel The Expendables 3 at Comic-Con 2014. In two separate interviews, the actor addresses the possibility of reprising one of his most iconic roles, the vampire-killer Blade.

While it doesn't seem that any definitive plans are in place yet, the actor told MTV that he would be open to returning for Blade 4.

"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

Snipes Open To A Fourth "Blade" Movie

26 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has been ten years since "Blade: Trinity," the last movie to boast Wesley Snipes as the famed vampire comic character and a film now mostly remembered for Ryan Reynolds' insanely ripped torso.

Since then, Snipes has famously spent some time behind bars due to some issues with the IRS. He's finally back on the acting scene though, and "The Expendables 3" in a few weeks is set to herald his return to cinema.

Snipes joined the cast of that latter film at Comic Con this weekend and MTV News was there to ask him if he'd like to slip on the fangs to play Blade once again. The actor seemed enthusiastic about the idea:

"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and »

Icons Upon Icons featurette for The Expendables 3

23 July 2014 12:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After dropping a batch of colourful Comic-Con posters earlier in the week, Lionsgate has now released a new featurette for The Expendables 3, which shows off the impressive roster of action icons set to feature in the threequel; take a look below…

In The Expendables 3, Barney, Christmas and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks, who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech »

Who Are The Top 20 Vampires in Books?

22 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Vampires have been and will always be a wonderful creature that runs through the pages of comic books, graphic novels and literary books, but these few stand out as some of the best of the lot. Of course choosing vampires in literature is always a daunting task, and as such, is entirely subjective.

1. Lestat from The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice

Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. “The Brat Prince” has helped form what many see as the template for how a vampire should be in modern day fiction. His boldness, enthusiasm, defiance and charm has made him the iconic vampire of the 20th and 21st century. You can begin to read his exploits in the first book of the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice in ‘Interview With A Vampire‘.

Dark Souls II receives mammoth update ahead of Dlc

21 July 2014 10:28 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dark Souls II's first Dlc is due today, and a new patch has addressed a huge list of issues...

News

The first Dlc for Dark Souls II, Crown of the Sunken King, has probably landed by the time you read this, and accompanying it is a huge update that fixes and tweaks a massive range of features.

You can see the full list below (and it's some list), but highlights include a limit to the amount of souls a player can earn whilst fighting invaders, and the removal of healing abilities during any form of PvP, a common annoyance for those who follow Dark Souls' community created honour system of no healing during a fight.

A good portion of the update deals with balancing, making changes to weapons damage, armour effectiveness, and spells. Some items have been changed too, such as the very handy Gower's Ring of Protection, which has been weakened, »

New poster and World Cup TV spot for The Expendables 3

What’s the World Cup and The Expendables 3 got in common? Well Sylvester Stallone did play in goal alongside World Cup winners Bobby Moore, Ossie Ardiles and Pele in Escape to Victory, and it seems that’s enough of a tenuous link for Lionsgate to tie in to the football tournament with a new World Cup TV spot for the upcoming action sequel, which we have for you below. But first, a new quad poster…

Pierce Brosnan wants to be one of The Expendables

30 June 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sylvester Stallone and his band of geriatric action stars have united on the big screen twice now as The Expendables. The storylines may be generic, and the action may be over the top, but it’s the star power behind the films that really draws in audiences.

Stallone has brought such iconic action film stars as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme into the fold, and is expanding that cast even more in this year’s The Expendables 3Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, and Wesley Snipes will be joining the fray this time around, in what is being marketed as the final film in the franchise.

Of course, if the film makes money there’s little chance the franchise will actually end. So, how do you go bigger once the likes of Rambo, »

What to Expect from The Expendables 3

27 June 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on what to expect from The Expendables 3

Two films into the Expendables franchise, fans eagerly await the arrival of the third instalment. Thus far we have come to expect certain things. Firstly of course, lots of stuff gets blown up. That’s a given considering the cast which is a group of 80’s and 90’s action Gods. Then there’s the referential humour, that in the second film in particular was almost non-stop. Did the first two films entertain? For many yes. Did they fully deliver on the promise? Not really. The balance has never quite been right. The scripts always felt a bit jumpy and in many cases some key cast members felt wasted (namely Mr Van Damme in number 2).

Now, expectation and the end result can often be two very different beasts. Many felt upon the first announcement of the original Expendables film that this »

Meet The Citizens As ‘Gotham’ Posters Arrive

26 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gotham is one of autumn’s most hotly anticipated television pilots. The series will tell the story of Jim Gordon as he makes his way through the police ranks. Being set in the fictional city of Gotham of course means that along the way we will encounter many characters, good and bad from the Batman universe.

Gordon is to be played by The Oc’s Ben McKenzie, with Blade actor Donal Logue onboard as his mentor. The newly orphaned Bruce Wayne is being played by David Mazouz, the boy who brilliantly portrayed the role of mute Jake in Touch alongside Kiefer Sutherland. Wayne will be looked after by everyone’s favourite Dog Soldier Sean Pertwee, with Jada Pinkett-Smith also joining the project as a brand new to the world role.

To help promote the Fox show, a series of posters have gone, see below:
