Wesley Snipes returning to Blade 4?
I really hope that this suggestion that Wesley Snipes is set to return to a new Blade film, and that there’s going to be a new Blade film, turns out to be true, for the character, the actor and the films are exceedingly enjoyable and good fun.
While he’s been out talking about the new film he’s starring in, Brooklyn’s Finest, a film that hopefully will project him back to the fore, he revealed that there has been talk about a fourth Blade, but how much?
The question isn’t really answered by the news from AITH through HorrorMovies.ca, and what we really need to know is whether this is Wesley Snipes talking about the idea of a Blade IV, perhaps asking about it and suggesting it himself, or if he’s been approached about the possibility.
Remember, and this is something that I’ve talked about time and time again, with the new spread of online reporting it’s easy for an actor to plant the seeds of an idea about them appearing in a role, and we’ve seen it time and time again, Ryan Reynolds has done it himself and it’s worked out well, so is Snipes doing it here?
If he’s not then there’s the chance that he really has been approached about a fourth Blade and we might see him return to the character. Considering the current trend of Hollywood on remakes and reboots, it wouldn’t be surprising if they followed this route, although perhaps a reboot would be more to their liking.
What would you want to see? A reboot with a new actor and starting a new, younger franchise? Or would you prefer to see Snipes return to the role?
