When Marvel regained the rights to Blade back in 2013, talk of another spin at the vampiric franchise has fired up every now and again, often a result of Wesley Snipes dropping wee hints to interviewers about studio meetings. Even though there’s no official confirmation on the movie, a new piece of intel suggests the series is headed in a different direction.
According to the folks over at Bleeding Cool there is another Blade on the way, with their sources suggesting Marvel is developing the reboot in response to increasing fan interest. There’s just one difference: it won’t centre around the Eric Brooks character played by Snipes, instead shifting the titular mantle to his daughter, as was the case in the recently revamped comics run.
While this latest tidbit doesn’t come with the studio’s seal of approval, it’s still an intriguing spot of intel to chew over. If Snipes were to return – and it sounds like he wants to – it would most likely be in a supporting capacity.
