The original Blade movie was first released back in 1998 and starred Wesley Snipes as the half-vampire, half-mortal vampire slayer. The movie eventually went on to span two other movies each getting subsequently worse reviews.
Speaking to Deadline at Comic-Con, Snipes was asked about the possibility of another installment in the Blade series and mentioned he has had a meeting with Marvel about it.
The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things. I don’t know where it’s on their schedule at this point, that hasn’t been decided. I guess it’s still up in the air.
Snipes went on to say that even if Blade 4 doesn’t come to be, there are other opportunities within the Marvel universe that he could become involved with instead.
I’ve always been a fan of these pieces and adaptations and I’d be nice to be a part of the family again. But if we don’t to a Blade 4 or something else with Marvel, we’ll do something else. We have some other characters and some other concepts that are going to be just as exciting and hopefully just as successful
Do you think a Marvel produced Blade 4 would do well, or do you think it would do better as a TV series? Do you think Snipes should return as Blade or should someone fresh step into the role? Let us know in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
