Anthony Mackie wants to be the new Blade

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'.
