In the comics, Blade did appear in in the Civil War comics, after registering under the Superhero Registration Act and fighting with S.H.I.E.L.D. The Day Walker was later revealed to be fighting under the identity of Ronin in a comic book series known as The Mighty Avengers, the first officially registered heroes. There were various different versions of The Mighty Avengers, with team members including Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, Hank Pym, Luke Cage and Monica Rambeau.
Do you think Wesley Snipes' Blade would make a good addition to Earth's Mightiest Heroes? It's worth noting that we know virtually nothing about Marvel's plans for Phase Four so it's possible that they could find a home for the Day Walker there. Hopefully we'll find out more about this potential crossover soon, so stay tuned for more details.Read More
The Punisher was recently announced for Marvel's Daredevil, with Jon Bernthal playing the character. Many have speculated that the half vampire-half human Blade will not return in his own solo sequel, but will instead be incorporated into one of the four Netflix series, which also include Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel's Iron Fist and Marvel's Luke Cage. Though, it's hard to say whether or not Wesley Snipes would return for a Netflix series, or which particular show would be able to incorporate the character.

After a long absence away from the spotlight, Wesley Snipes made his long-awaited return on the big screen in last summer's The Expendables 3. He is now ready to take on a more permanent position, signing up for a role in NBC's new drama The Player. It was one of two new shows ordered by the network this weekend, the other being the drama Game of Silence from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation's Carol Mendelsohn. NBC has also renewed the medical drama The Night Shift for Season 3. This news comes just one week before The Night Shift Season 2 finale is set to air.
The Player comes from the team responsible for NBC's mega-hit The Blacklist. Set in Las Vegas, the action thriller follows a former military operative-turned-security expert (Philip Winchester). He is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out. Seeking revenge for the death of his wife, his goal is to take them all down. Charity Wakefield and Damon Gupton co-star.Read More

Wesley Snipes headed down to San Diego this weekend to promote his action-packed sequel The Expendables 3 at Comic-Con 2014. In two separate interviews, the actor addresses the possibility of reprising one of his most iconic roles, the vampire-killer Blade.
Back in May 2013, Marvel Studios reacquired the rights to Blade and other properties such as The Punisher, Ghost Rider and Daredevil. Later that month, we reported that Marvel is developing a Blade reboot, but that would essentially mean that we won't see Wesley Snipes return to reprise his famed character, which he played in 1998's Blade, 2002's Blade 2 and 2004's Blade: Trinity.Read More
