Asked if he would ever revisit the character of Blade, Snipes said, "It would be nice to fulfill some of the really cool plans we had for Blade, but didn't get the chance to go live with."
Released back in 1998, Blade made superhero movies commercially viable properties for studios again, helping to redefine the summer blockbuster.
"Some people forget or overlook my/our contribution to this current trend," Snipes told us. "The 'Gaming' community knows and the streets give us credits, but the movie world frequently plays us like the 'ugly step child' or the 'kitchen help,' especially when the conversation revolves around the 'boys in tights' or 'the bat'.
"Getting asked this question all the time, my response is: 'Under the right circumstances, with the right team, yes, I'd do another one.' But don't get me wrong, I'm not waiting around for the opportunity. I've got plenty to do, plus an unraveled character in the works who I think will give Blade a helluva run for his money."
