Kevin Feige Fighting To Make R-Rated Blade Movie With Wesley Snipes
Sorry if this is a repost
No no no friend.
Thank you for posting this.... cuz I think some people need to see this.
There’s been a lot of things said in other threads about Disney, their plans with Hulu and they plans for Rated R properties.
A lot of jokes...... just want this to breath for a bit and see how they respond
Thank you for this.

I'd prefer a BLADE TV SERIES w/Snipes as Blade on Hulu.
If it happens great, what's the "fight" about. I thought Hulu was ready to do R rated content day 1?
If they do a tv series it probably won't be with Snipes. That would be downgrade from his successful franchise.
it seems like we either get toContinue the Film Franchise with Wesley,
Or get a reboot of the sticky fingaz Blade show with some random unknown that will probably suck.
Between those two choices i want the Movie. Wesley is really the primary reason that character is good. it hasn't worked with other actors. Because you need the mixture of charisma and martial arts ability. That combination is rare. Like Anthony Mackie meets Michael Jai White. I don't know of any viable candidates who can do the character justice.
Didnt think they were coming back with Wesley... if they weren’t, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II would fit
Give this brother a shot
What movies has he been in? You can't get some non acting ass person in there and expect it to be as good as Wesley Snipes portrayal.
I hear you say that.....
Then it reminds me if the overall masses that never heard or or saw the work it Sebastian Stan, Chris Pratt, Brie Larson, Tom Holland, Chris Helmsworth, and etc new face that Marvel has ultimately on the biggest stage debuted.
Not saying he’s on that level but theoretically the same concept.
Not everyone watched HIMYM, a lot of people have no idea who Colbie Smoulders is.
Also, I guess you’re right. And it depends on what kind of Blade film do we want.
Do we want something with “action action ACTIONS” catering to the people that claimed they didn’t enjoy the Endgame experience due to a lot of acting and storytelling?
Do we want more storytelling, character moments, monologues, and acting with a couple of fight scene sprinkled in?
So I guess it depends
I don't get the point you made. Chris Pratt , Brie Larson Chris Hemsworth people like them did work prior to marvel. But more than that their characters shoots laser's and fly and shyt. Blade is a martial arts film. Not super man.
Sebastion Stan would be the closest to this argument. Be even he is an actual actor who has been in movies and tv since he was a child actor. Has the guy you showed even been in a movie before?
Is this your personal blog? I've never heard of this website. What sources do they have that wouldn't have been picked up by the usual suspects?
Is dude an actor? Has he ever acted before?
Because I don't get this idea that just because a guy can do the moves means he is perfect for the role. Perfect to be the stunt double maybe but that is about it if dude is not any kid of actor.
This part from the article:
Has me kind of wanting to see Fiege's idea as a series. That passing the torch story seems like something that would benefit from having more room to breathe.
It's a legit site but it does run a lot of rumors that more mainstream sites probably wouldn't.
I think this info is true but I wouldn't take it at face value. What I mean is, it's possibly been leaked by Marvel to drum up interest in Blade and/or assuage fears that Disney won't let them make R rated content....there's no way in hell Feige would have to fight with anyone after "Endgame" just did $2.6 billion. Least of all Hulu.
Point being.... THE MAJORITY
Brother I thought I was very clear with that
Unless you been a fan of these guys work (or in some cases live in the guys same country to see their work) THE MAJORITY of the Blockbuster tickets buyers have and never had any idea of any of these actors not named RDJ, Sam L, Chris Evans, Don Cheadle and a few other folks.
It’s kinda like the WWE with there are guys that worked in others places for damn near 10 years and yea a few of them were big in their respective little markets.
But the moment the made it to the WWE and then later a Wrestlemania was the moment they really took off.
Hell even on a smaller scale The Walking Dead cast. Everyone of them was unknowns until they got on there.
Also said, not saying he’s on that level. As far as his work. I’m gonna be honest with you my guy, I have no idea.... but it’s just like when I first heard Brie Larson, Chris Helms, and a few others.
As you said though, Blade is a martial arts film and I think it would be cool if they got a black guy that can do martial arts.
