Is Blade 4 actually happening? According to the buzz that’s circulating the internet, it is a very strong possibility. In 1998, we were introduced to the day walking vampire hunter, and Marvel entertainment never looked back.

Blade slashed his way into theatres, and achieved box office success, the same kind expected of Marvel standalone hero’s at the time.

The only problem that Blade ran into was that the sequels that followed, couldn’t measure up to the success that X-men had achieved in 2000.

Will Marvel (and Disney) let Wesley Snipes star in Blade 4?

If you pair this with the fact that Marvel really didn’t see a way to include him into the mainstream world, and give him his own standing comic series—you can certainly understand why the buzz died quickly, even after it saved horrible comic book movies such as Batman and Robin, and The Phantom.

The NY Daily news seems to think that Snipes has the chops to pull off a huge comeback with his reprisal.

[email protected] has learned Wesley Snipes is set to reprise his lead role in “Blade,” the 1998 vampire thriller that made more than $130 million and generated two sequels. Sources close to Snipes tells us the 52-year-old actor’s comeback after being released from prison in April 2013 (after serving two and a half years for tax evasion).

Is “looking good” and that he’ll make $3 million from this film, plus a cut of the profits.

Wesley Snipes has begun a career comeback, with his most recent entry of The Expendables 3. While his role was more of a supporting casting, it still was enough to let fans know, he still has he moves to play Blade if Marvel gives him the chance.

The only obstacles in his way that we can foresee are:

1. With Marvel being so PG-13 now, can a rated R film like Blade 4 achieve box office success with the Avengers and new Marvel Universe? Honestly, probably not. They could give him his own arc, but how successful would it be exactly?

2. Now that Disney owns Blade, we can’t seriously expect him to show up in the theme parks like the Avengers, or Spider-Man, so what could they do with him as a character?

3. Knowing that New Line Cinema was the leading producer of the first three Blade films, and Warner Bros. was the executive producer, while Marvel was the parent it raises many questions.

If Blade 4 comes to theatres, we have to wonder if we’ll get extra footage, if Marvel will bring him back into prominence, and if Snipes will be Blade once again.

We could get a new actor entirely if the movie is greenlit, just so Snipes won’t receive royalties for repackaged movie combo packs.
