Wesley Snipes would be keen to have his Marvel character Blade join an upcoming 'Avengers' movie if the storyline was right
Wesley Snipes wants Blade to feature in the 'Avengers' franchise.
Although it's been over 10 years since 2004's 'Blade: Trinity' was released, Wesley insists he's still physically fit enough to portray the Marvel comics human-vampire hybrid again on the big screen and he would be interested in joining the 'Avengers' team.
He said: "That would be interesting. I mean, I know it's in the comic book. It would be interesting to see where they would place him and where he really would fit in. He's got to bite somebody. I don't know who he's going to bite."
However, Wesley would also be happy for another standalone 'Blade' movie, if Marvel agree.
He told Huff Post Live: "There's always a possibility, you know. It's in Marvel's hands. They're controlling the pace and the flow with that. Conversations have been good. They see the value in it. We see the value in it.
"I'm still in shape enough and fit enough to handle the role. We'll see how it goes. I don't really know what's going to happen to it yet."
The original 'Blade' movie was released in 1998 and was Marvel's first significant box-office hit.
Since then, the movie studio has enjoyed incredible success with some of its other comic book characters, such as 'Iron Man', 'Captain America' and 'The Avengers'.
