blade - Blade Will Return to the Big Screen

It’s been 13 years since we last saw Wesley Snipes’ Blade on the big screen. Considering how utterly dreadful the third film was, I’m not surprised that it’s been a while, although I do think that it’s a shame that the character hasn’t been used in other ways since then, such as cameo appearances in the MCU or at least a possible Netflix series.

That being said, it sounds like the property is ever present in the mind of Marvel president Kevin Feige, who spoke recently with JoBlo to talk about the possibility of a return to the vampire-laden universe.

We think it would be cool. Someday. My tenure at Marvel started 17 years ago, and there were two things that sort of launched the modern era. One was X-Men, which was the first thing that people said, “Oh, there’s life here.” But a few years before that, there was Blade. A character nobody had heard of at all, had only appeared in a few issues of Tomb of Dracula or something, turned into a big franchise,” Feige states. He further explains, “That was always a great lesson for me, where you go, “It doesn’t matter how well known the character is, it matters how cool the movie is.” Which, many years later, would be the reason we do Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange. I think Blade is a legacy character now, and I think it would be fun to do something with him one day.

The idea of a return to Blade, especially if they can somehow introduce him into the MCU, is pretty damn exciting. Marvel has a lot of horror pathways they can go down and this would be a very obvious choice to do so. However, even though it’s obvious, it bears so much in the way of possibility. The amount of fun they could have with this property is endless!
