    Blade

    Apparently Marvel is bringing back the vampire hunter Blade to the big or small screen. With Wesley Snipes. No official word from Marvel though so could just be Snipes trying to get it to happen.

    Wesley Snipes, who just recently reflected on the impact of the Blade franchise, may be returning to the role. If you believe an item in the New York Daily News, that is.

    According to the newspaper’s celebrity gossip column, “sources close to Snipes” say the 52-year-old actor has struck a deal to once again play Marvel’s daywalker, for which he’d make $3 million plus a cut of profits.

    However, Marvel Studios, which revealed in 2011 that it reclaimed the Blade rights, has given no indication it’s bringing the character back to the screen. Although Marvel has demonstrated a willingness with Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming Doctor Strange to venture away from straightforward superhero fare in its films, Blade would seem like a better fit with its Netflix plans, which will focus on more street-level characters like Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.

    Still, secret projects are always in the works in Hollywood, so we’ll see how this shakes out.

    Snipes, who starred in 1998′s Blade, 2002′s Blade II and 2004′s Blade: Trinity, told MTV during Comic-Con International that he’d be open to a fourth installment.

    “I think we’ve got some stones left unturned, and there’s some latitude for us to build on,” he said. “I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things that 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.”

    Why not? The movies were alright and he could certainly use the money.

    Fuck this, though. Make a new "U.S. Marshals" while Tommy Lee is still alive.

    Pretty much the same idea Marvel was going with for the Blade comic that never happened after Secret Wars.

    I love Wesley Pipes. I'll watch it. And if y'all haven't checked Brooklyn's Finest, his role is great and that's a great movie overall.

    Those movies don't hold up well, at all. A reboot would be welcome.

    It's ok, you can like bad things. I like the Jurassic Park sequels. That doesn't make them good movies.

    Blade 3 was pretty good. I'll leave it on in the backround when it's on TV, which feels like it comes on at least once a month.

    I'll watch any and all Blade movies, so a series or whatever this is supposed to be is fine by me since Snipes is in it.

    Blade 2 wasn't bad at all (it was better than most hero movies out at the time) and Snipes was great as Blade.

    I enjoyed Blade Trinity, compared to the other 2 it felt more like a comedy movie.

    I'm excited for anything related to Snipes
