Scoop: Wesley Snipes Discussed For New 'Blade' Villain
Written By Mikey Sutton • Editor-in-Chief • Owner
Wesley Snipes won't be Blade anymore, but according to sources there have been private discussions of having him appear in the rebooted franchise.
1998's Blade is Marvel's first successful theatrical film. In a historical context, it's importance cannot be questioned. Marvel Studios would love to have Snipes participate in the new movies. From what I heard, they are discussing of having him as the villain, perhaps the MCU version of Dracula or even as Blade's mentor, Abraham Whistler.
With no creative team attached to Blade yet aside from actor Mahershala Ali, it might take a while for other casting decisions such as this to be made; however, Snipes is on their mind.
