Blade. Blade was, quite possibly, the opening shot in the Marvel salvo of awesomeness. Sure, there were some misses, but Blade was a bullseye. It doesn’t matter if Blade 3 wasn’t the greatest. Blade and Blade II were excellent.
So, how do I feel when I hear that Mr. Snipes has been in talks with Marvel? Marvel… you know, the guys who make a living out of skating on thin ice. The same Marvel who made Guardians of the Galaxy work. The same Marvel who WILL be making another Howard the Duck movie. I feel giddy. Marvel likes to make money, and making another Blade would be like an easy trip to the bank.
DEADLINE: Well, will you be bringing the vampire hunter back?
SNIPES: 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.
DEADLINE: Could we see you going the ever expanding Marvel Universe in another way?
SNIPES: That’s a possibility too. 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. The first season of The Player will be interesting as well because we have drama and action, which is what I like. It gives me a chance to do a number of different things.
