Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says there’s no current plans for Blade to appear on the big, small, or streaming screens anytime soon.
But, that doesn’t mean the studio doesn’t want to do something with the vampire-hunting hero.
Speaking after a sneak peek showing of Doctor Strange this week, Feige said the answer to fans’ question is: “We’ll do something with Blade at some point. That’s still the answer.”
He went on to say, “We still think he’s a great character. He’s a really fun character. We think this movie [Doctor Strange] going into a different side of the universe would have the potential to have him pop up, but between the movies, the Netflix shows, the ABC shows there are so many opportunities for the character to pop up as you’re now seeing with Ghost Rider on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that rather than team up with another studio on that character let’s do something on our own.
“What that is? Where that will be? We’ll see. There is nothing imminent to my knowledge.”
Wesley Snipes played Blade in three movies from 1998 to 2004, and he has teased fans over the years about a return to the franchise. But nothing has materialized.
