There have been rumblings lately that Marvels vampire hunter extraordinaire, Blade, could be returning to screens as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Its purely idol gossip at this stage, but the star of the original trilogy, almost-action hero and epic tax cheat Wesley Snipes, has been open to a return when asked. Some have been suggesting that Blade could return as a mentor to a new, younger vampire slayer who is less encumbered by the franchises past, whilst some think that Blade might work best in Netflixs darker corner of the MCU alongside Daredevil, the Punisher and Jessica Jones. Regardless of how it work, theres no question that a return for Snipes day-walker would be nothing but welcome, even after the suck-fest that was Blade Trinity seemingly derailed the franchise for good over a decade ago. If however youre still unsure as to why Blades particular brand of vampire dicing should be brought back to the big screen then I would argue that its been too long since you watched the original Blade from 1998. Blade has wrongly become a footnote in the story of comic book movies to date, so heres why its actually the most underrated Marvel movie around.
