It seems like every few months, Marvel reminds us all that they still might include vampire hunter Blade in a future Phase or two. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige seems particularly into the idea, and recently said, yet again, that he really wants to get Blade into the MCU — and gave a very good reason for why he likes the character so much.
During Comic-Con Wesley Snipes revealed that he’d had some discussions with Marvel about reviving the Blade franchise now that the rights have reverted back to the studio. It wasn’t long after that a rumor popped up involving a delay in the release of Marvel’s new comic centered on Blade’s daughter, suggesting that Marvel Studios might be working on a project involving that character. And now the Blade rumors continue to flow as Snipes is once again talking about meeting with Marvel, making things seem more optimistic for his return than ever before.
