Wesley Snipes’ may return as Blade as Marvel Studios is reportedly planning on bringing back the veteran to MCU.

“Looks like they have little faith in the one with Mahershala Ali”: Wesley Snipes Reportedly Returning as Blade as MCU’s Reboot Keeps Running Into Delays

Wesley Snipes’ Blade Trilogy has a cult following with a loyal and dedicated fandom. As MCU is set to reboot the franchise with Oscar-winning star Mahershala Ali, fans have long sought the reappearance of Snipes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, a recent rumor suggests that there is still room for Snipes’ Blade in the MCU.

Nothing is beyond possibility, at least in the multiverse saga. Spider-Man: No Way Home is a prime example of that, as the Tom Holland starrer movie created the spectacle bringing back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield alongside their iconic villains. In its essence, the speculation might just come true as Marvel is reportedly planning big for Avengers: Secret Wars.

Wesley Snipes’ Balde return is fairly possible, but the Blade reboot has not been in a good light. After the confirmation of the movie, the Mahershala Ali-starrer vampire hunter flick has faced several delays. Also, nothing has been revealed about the movie. As of writing the piece, there is no confirmation of who will accompany Ali in the film.

Insider Daniel Richtman revealed about Snipes’ return as Blade in the Multiverse Saga. Snipes’ return to the MCU is quite promising, but his return is not directly associated with Ali’s Blade. Rather, if the speculations come true, he will return in MCU’s huge preparation— Avengers: Secret Wars.

Also, Snipes previously revealed that he is open to reprising his iconic Marvel character. Speaking with ComicBook.com, the actor shared his interest in reliving the character again. “Never say never. Long as I’m healthy and in shape,” Snipes said.

“I can rock with them. Yeah, as far as my predictions on if something like that happened in future, I don’t know. I don’t know. It seems to me if it would’ve happened, it would’ve happened already. But hey, never say never. No, [Marvel Studios has not approached me] as of yet. I’m still working on my acting skills. So when I come up as an actor, maybe they’ll reach out and say, ‘Let’s have a conversation,’ or maybe they don’t feel I’m ensemble player.”

At that point, Marvel Studios did not approach the 61-year-old Demolition Man star. Snipes has been a legendary action star, and his Blade trilogy has remained the spectacle of his glorious career.


Fans Went Nostalgic With The Wesley Snipes’ Blade Speculation

Nostalgia works. Spider-Man: No Way Home and then the most recent MCU’s Disney+ series X-Men ’97 has proved the essence of revisiting the vintage in the MCU. Although it is unclear the actual reason behind the delay of Ali’s Blade, fans speculate that Marvel Studios’ faith in Ali is questionable, especially after the nostalgia factor worked in their favor.



Regardless, Snipes’ return could be a huge thing for the MCU, but most likely, it would be a one-time thing. Although much of Ali’s Blade is under wraps, the adventure of the vampire hunter is set to begin in 2025 as the anti-hero is scheduled to appear on the big screen on 7 November 2025.
