Rumor: Wesley Snipes to Reprise His Role in BLADE 4

Wesley-Snipes-The-Expendables-3

The Expendables 3 star Wesley Snipes is reportedly eager to reprise his role as the vampire hunter, Blade for fourth time.

A source told the New York Daily News newspaper’s Confidenti@l column that Snipes is set to reprise his lead role in a new installment of Blade for $3 million plus a cut of the profits.

This is shortly after the actor said to MTV that he would be interested in doing another Blade movie:

“I’d be open to it. You know I think we got some stones left unturned and there’s some latitude for us to build on. I’d love to get back in the suit and do some things that I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now. You know, some of the things that we did in the early parts of the franchise were experimental and now they’ve become customary in a lot of The Avengers films and other comic book adaptations.”

As of May of 2013, the rights to Blade have went back to Marvel/Disney and they haven’t even hinted this. It would be nice if Studios did a series of less family centric movies like Blade and Punisher, but I see them becoming a part of Netflix’s shows and not movies.

Prove me wrong, Marvel!
