The Blade franchise has had a really interesting ride thus far. The original film hit almost all of the marks that it should have. Del Toro’s Blade II was like a fan’s wet dream. Blade: Trinity, which showcased everyone’s favorite comic book vamp hunter facing off against the big daddy bloodsucker of them all, Dracula, lacked any serious bite; and the TV show, while pretty good, was cut short.
There’s been persistent talk of a reboot since around 2007, but it wasn’t until doing press for the upcoming film Brooklyn’s Finest that theatrical franchise star Wesley Snipes expressed any interest. According to Arrow in the Head Snipes said that there has been some talk about a Blade 4 and that he would be interested if the script was right.
So what do you guys think? Secure Snipes, who may be getting a bit too old, or go in a new direction? We say bring back Sticky Fingaz from the TV show. He totally grew into the role.
We shall see.
