Wesley Snipes hints at a possible return to Blade

Wesley Snipes' vampire hunter BLADE hasn't been spotted in theaters since 2004, but in a recent interview with Comic Book Resources, he hinted at talks with Marvel about a possible revival of the brand. Says Snipes:

Well, we’ve had some discussions. We have had very positive and favorable discussions about the Blade character and other things they have in mind. We’ll see where it goes. For those Blade fans, if we never reprise Blade, I have another character that will stand toe to toe with Blade any day. It’s not done yet.

We all know how Marvel's schedule is more transparent than the Invisible Woman on a bad hair day, so even if we do get a new BLADE, we'll likely hear about it soon and have to wait a half dozen years, but this could be good news!

At any rate, this news of a new character is certainly intriguing. Considering that we've already gotten three BLADE flicks, this could also be a fun development if the Marvel deal falls through. We could certainly use more Snipes in our lives, no matter what shape he takes.

Extra Tidbit: Would you rather see Wesley Snipes return as Blade or a new character?
