Blade to get a reboot: Wesley Snipes says he has not been approached by Marvel

One of the most underrated superheroes of Marvel is yet to be introduced to the new generation of Marvel fans. Can you guess which one is it?

Well, don’t worry we have got you covered!

It is none other than our very own vampire hunter character, based on the Marvel comics- Blade. The Blade is set to make its appearance in the MCU with a reboot version of Blade: The series.

Marvel Studios relaunched the blade in the 2000s as a film series. Wesley Snipes played the character The blade in the trilogy film series. After his role as Blade in the three movies, fans are expecting to see him again in the reboot version.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness introduced many characters from the non- Marvel franchise like Professor x played by Patrick Stewart and Black Bolt. Keeping this in mind, is it possible that we can expect The Blade to reprise his role?

With only weeks away before filming the reboot series of The Blade, Marvel is gearing up to introduce the character to the new generation of Marvel fans. This also means we can expect Blade to be seen in the future of Marvel projects.

But, given the reappearance of other non- MCU characters in the sequel movie of Doctor Strange, is it possible that we get to see Wesley also play the role of Blade in the upcoming reboot version of The Blade?

Well, answering this question the actor said- he hasn’t been approached for the role yet-“No, not as of yet. I’m still working on my acting skills. So when I come up as an actor, maybe they’ll reach out and say, Let’s have a conversation,’ or maybe they don’t feel I’m an ensemble player.

In a conversation with Yahoo!’s Kevin Polowy, the actor said-” We spoke. The issue of him being cast wasn’t between us, I’m cool with that, I don’t walk around as Blade, so I’m not attached to the character like that. I feel no emotional loss, zero, and I’m happy that he’s being recast and will more than likely do a great job.”

However, it is not been confirmed yet as to who will be cast for the upcoming reboot version of The Blade. The official dates of the release of the reboot version of the show from Marvel Studios are yet to be released.

The Blade trilogy is streaming now on HBO Max.
