The “Blade Universe” Could Return To The MCU…?

Published

on

The rumor mill has been up and down about the return of Marvel’s most popular vampire hunter, Blade. Wesley Snipes over the years has expressed interest in returning to the property but A lot has changed in the world of comic book film, since the release of ‘Blade’ back in 1998. The Blade trilogy has grossed over $415 mil world wide. Which by modern day standards amounts to about an opening weekend average per film. With that being said, the day walker has been widely regarded as a necessary and missing piece to the MCU.

 

With Marvel’s Phase 4 shortly underway, we know that there will be room for other projects to work their way into the new direction of Marvel. Well, it would appear that fans of the franchise just might get their wish! In a recent interview with Vice, Snipes faned the flames for the return of the Day Walker:

“There are a lot of conversations going around right now and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something coming from that world again. We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world and, when people see them, I think they’re only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love the most.”

Now, a conversation with Marvel execs doesn’t really mean a whole lot. I’m sure ideas are tossed their way on a daily basis. But, Snipes went on further to explain how hopeful he is for the return of Blade:

“All the main execs [at Marvel] and my team, we’ve been discussing for the past two years. Everyone’s enthusiastic about it, everybody gets it. But they got a business to run and they gotta square the things that they gotta figure out before they can get to it, I guess. In the meantime, we got a business to run and our own slate of things to do so…But the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now.”

Though exciting to hear, it sounds like even Snipes is skeptical about his chances of returning to the big screen as the vampire killer. Considering two years of conversation hasn’t amounted to much, it’s still exciting to hear, that if Blade returns, we will see a “Day Walker” the likes of which has never been seen!
