Anthony Mackie wants to be the new Blade

03.23.2017by: Mike Sprague

Just the other day I was thinking about how I'd love to see a surprise BLADE appearance in one of these Marvel movies. I am truthfully getting a bit bored with them and there would have been nothing better to make DOCTOR STRANGE a bit more entertaining than if BLADE would have shown up and cut some "ice-skatin'-uphill" motherf*ker to ember-sparking pieces.

Turns out Falcon, aka Anthony Mackie, feels the same way. He was recently talking to ScreenGeek and told them he really, really wants to play BLADE. I say? Sh*t yeah, give the man the movie!

Anthony Mackie tells ScreenGeek:

“I pretty much want to grow up to be Wesley Snipes. If we can bring back Blade, I’d definitely be Blade in every Blade movie.”

Hurm... I wonder if the MCU will allow Mackie to portray both Blade AND Falcon. I guess it could happen. It would be a much cooler role than Falcon anyhow. It's what Mackie deserves at this point.

Anyhow, the last update on BLADE and his cinematic future came from Kevin Feige back in October:

“We’ll do something with Blade at some point. That’s still the answer. We think he’s a great character, a really fun character... the universe has fun potential for him to pop up, and between the movies, the Netflix shows, the ABC shows, there’s so many opportunities for the characters to show up... rather than team-up with other studios with that character, we’ll do something cool on our own. What that is and what that will be? We’ll see. There is nothing imminent to my knowledge.”

Nothing imminent, huh? Well, we'll see about that. Sure, BLADE is an R-rated character (and should stay that way), but with all the R-rated comic heroes popping up now, maybe it's time for Blade's return?

I know he'd at least fit right the f*ck in on Netflix's DAREDEVIL show... BLADE vs PUNISHER...

BLADE TRINITY star Jessica Biel

Extra Tidbit: Jordan Peele would direct the f*ck out of BLADE. Just sayin'.

Mackie would be great in the role, but I'm not ready to see Blade rebooted. Isn't Wesley Snipes still in shape? He IS Blade to me and Trinity was so disappointing that I'm just waiting for at least one more to leave that series on a high note. If Harrison Ford can still play Indiana Jones and Arnold Schwarzenegger can still play the Terminator, I see no reason why Welsey Snipes can't still be Blade 15 years later.

I can't see Blade fitting in the main MCU. But he could definitely fit in with DareDevil and Punisher. Introducing Blade opens a whole new can of worms, cause you're introducing vampires.

He is Falcon, so no way he will be Blade

And don't put Blade in some shitty ABC show. I would love to see him on Netflix though, it would be more successful than a movie. Unless they put out the first R rated Marvel universe character... Then they would need to bring in Spidey or Dr Strange to take down vampires... But they would never let anyone other than Blade be in an R rated movie, and look how they ruined Ghost Rider on that horrible Shield shitshow.
