"Blade" was the unofficial start of the current comic book movie boom, with the 1998 original debuting two years before the first "X-Men" film. And it looks like there's at least a chance that Wesley Snipes will return to the Marvel vampire hunter that he's played three times on screen.
In an interview with Deadline on his upcoming NBC series "The Player," Snipes commented that he's met with Marvel about potentially returning to the role, though nothing is currently in motion. "The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things," Snipes told Deadline. "I don't know where it's on their schedule at this point, that hasn't been decided. I guess it's still up in the air."
Snipes also said it's possible that even if he doesn't play Blade again, he's open to another Marvel role. "I've always been a fan of these pieces and adaptations and I'd be nice to be a part of the family again," Snipes said. "ut if we don't to a 'Blade 4' or something else with Marvel, we'll do something else."
Snipes last played Blade in 2004's "Blade: Trinity." "The Player" debuts this fall on NBC.
