I respectfully doubt this.

I believe it for a number of reasons. 

1)Snipes has been teasing it for months/years.
2)Disney said they ARE in the business of making R-rated Marvel movies, up to and including keeping Deadpool R, once the Fox deal is finalized (which should be any day now, oddly enough).
3) They apparently already have a script ready. It's said to feature his daughter who they were gonna use in a cancelled Blade comic.

I also don't think Snipes would agree to a Blade movie in the MCU unless they agreed to drop the cuffs and let him get the movie HE wants to make (read: R-rated, balls-to-walls vampire-slaying goodness, much like the comics and New Line Blade films), which is coincidentally what Ryan Reynolds said about Deadpool (that he won't do it unless it's R, he's said this repeatedly).

Snipes has zero leverage to make Disney do anything.  He's been an actor willing to work any Direct-to-DVD film someone will pay him to show up for since Blade Trinity.



The film that started it all. Saved Marvel, ruined Marvel, all because someone wrote a directly a half decent vampire film in the 90s.



Hmm, pie.

I liked Blade and Blade II. Hope it's true.



Playing this month : Death Stranding, Gears 5 and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.

This probably means Singer's X-Men is safe. NO ONE TOUCHES MY QUICKSILVER!



It was Britain, it is America, tomorrow France and next year, the world...

    Disney will just hire a new unown/less popular black actor for the role of Blade. I feel like they'll do what they did with Ant-Man where Wesley Snipes will play as the original Blade but will need to train a new younger Blade.

    That's basically what they said they're gonna do: he's gonna be training his daughter.

    I won't mind it too much if they treat it like X-23 (Laura) and Wolvie's relationship in Logan: he has a daughter figure very much in his shadow throughout the film, but he still plays a big role. If they do it like this, I feel he should have a bigger presence than Whistler had in the New Line Blade trilogy, but less than what Wolverine had in Logan.



    they have fantastic four and xmen, i hope they stop making movies about characters no one gives a shit and bring the big dogs, Wolverine team up movie with deadpool ? that would be amazing, start fresh with xmen, make fantastic four good, sick of mediocre shit like antman and wasp, captain marvel seems to be garbage also and spiderman deserves better than this mediocre shit we getting.

    That would be David S. Goyer.  Which means Blade actually ruined DC.



    This is good news for snipes
