A source close to We Got This Covered says that Marvel is currently planning an R-rated BLADE movie, and it’s said that Wesley Snipes is likely to be involved in the project. Evidently, the studio has a script which sees The Daywalker training his daughter, Fallon Grey. But this has not been confirmed.
This should be taken cautiously and be considered a rumor now nothing is set in stone.
Snipes said this a while back.
“There are a lot of conversations going around right now, and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something coming from that world again. We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world, and when people see them, I think they’re only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love the most”
Snipes on Marvel’s involvement:
“All the main execs [at Marvel] and my team, we’ve been discussing for the past two years. Everyone’s enthusiastic about it, everybody gets it. But they got a business to run and they gotta square the things that they gotta figure out before they can get to it, I guess. In the meantime, we got a business to run and our own slate of things to do so…But the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now.”
Hopefully we can hear more about it soon with more details.
