    Will Wesley Snipes Play Blade Again For Marvel?

    Fresh from San Diego Comic Con comes word that action veteran Wesley Snipes has spoken with Marvel about a possible revival of the ‘Blade’ movies. Snipes produced and took the lead in the three ‘Blade’ movies made between 1998 and 2004 for New Line Cinema, and the original film about the vampire hunting anti-hero is often regarded as one of the key turning points for Marvel movies. The film rights to Blade have long since reverted to Marvel, but there has been no word thus far on whether the studio had any plans for the character.
