During an appearance at New York Comic-Con to promote “Underworld: Blood Wars,” actress Kate Beckinsale was asked whether her vampire warrior character of Selene might ever cross paths with Snipes’ Blade, to which she responded that a new “Blade” project is already in the works, The Independent reports. Unfortunately for fans hoping to see both characters in the same film, Beckinsale said she is not involved in the upcoming “Blade” project.
This isn’t the first time talks of a fourth “Blade” film have been swirling around, as Snipes himself told attendees at Comic-Con last year that he had “a really productive and a wonderful meeting” with Marvel in which they discussed making another “Blade” movie. »
