Before the MCU existed Marvel had their first hit film in the form of 1998’s Blade starring Wesley Snipes as the day walker. The film has become a cult favorite and spawned two sequels starring the vampire hunter. Given that, many fans have begun wondering when Blade will finally be introduced into the MCU and more importantly who will play him.
Well none other than Wesley Snipes himself has weighed in on who he feels should take on the role. In a recent tweet Snipes gave his take on the question of who could be the next Blade.
And it’s not too surprising that Snipes thinks he is the perfect person to play Blade in the MCU. He has made his hopes to return as the vampire hunter clear in the past and has even discussed the possibility of a Blade 4 with Marvel Studios.
Whether Marvel Studios would allow Snipes to return to his character is unknown, as they have thus far recasted characters from unconnected Marvel films, such as Tom Holland taking over as Spider-Man from Andrew Garfield.
