Wesley Snipes Reacts To Rumors That He’s Returning as Blade

Wesley Snipes Might be Returning to Blade Role Latest Rumors Indicate

MCU has plenty of projects in the works scheduled to be released over the course of the next several years, one of them is the ‘Blade’ reboot, developed to bring in the most notable vampire hunter in the history of comics to MCU.

Mahershala Ali proposed the project and will be playing the titular vampire hunter. The movie was originally supposed to come out in 2023, but the release date was pushed all the way to 2025 (so far) due to Ali not exactly being happy with the script.

A few weeks ago we covered highly viral rumors that Wesley Snipes is returning to his old role, that of Blade. For many fans, he is still the gold standard when it comes to vampire hunters so plenty of fans were elated. The rumor went as far as to claim that Snipes will reprise his role in multiple projects set to be a part of Multiverse Saga.

Now Snipes himself obviously saw the rumor and had a hilarious reaction that quite possibly debunked it.

This doesn’t rule out the possibility that Snipes is lying of course, but due to his age, he might no longer be a perfect candidate for “several projects.” Quick cameo yes, but possibly nothing longer than that.

The upcoming ‘Blade’ had a turbulent development with the story being changed multiple times, and Mahershala even almost dropping out at one point. Plenty of names did drop out of the project like Aaron Pierre due to undisclosed reasons. The latest reports point in the direction of the movie’s story being slashed down to mere basics and the movie now fully revolving around just Blade killing vampires and the shooting is finally ready to start in Mexico. We still can’t claim that Snipes will or won’t appear in the movie, but seeing Snipes’ reaction,yeah…
