Wesley Snipes was in San Diego for Comic-Con this past weekend promoting his new show The Player on NBC but there was on question everyone had: Is Blade coming back? Snipes famously portrayed the day-walking vampire for a trio of films in the ‘90s and early 2000s and with the hotness of comic book movies in the past few years, Snipes is getting bombarded with Blade 4 questions.
“The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things,” Snipes told Deadline. “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.”
As far as joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as another character?
“That’s a possibility too,” Snipes said. “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.”
Snipes is also in Spike Lee’s upcoming film, Chiraq, which also stars Common, Jennifer Hudson, and John Cusack.
