Should Marvel decide to bring Blade out of retirement, who should be next in line to play the iconic vampire superhero? Original Blade actor Wesley Snipes sure has his own opinion, check it out below.

With Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige having recently commented on the fan-favorite character Blade, and how he might fit into the MCU, there's been plenty of speculation about who should play the character. While Idris Elba has been a popular choice among fans of the character, original Blade actor Wesley Snipes has weighed in on the debate.

Taking to social media, Snipes, the star of the original Blade trilogy, tweeted out a pretty definitive response to the question over who should play the "next" Blade.


It's been about 13 years since the 55-year-old actor last portrayed the iconic vampire superhero, but Idris Elba seems to agree with Snipes. Elba recently told ScreenRant that "No one can do Blade better than Wesley."

It's worth noting that we don't even know if there will be another Blade movie. Marvel acquired the film rights to the character in 2012, and in 2013 there were rumors that Marvel had a working script for a movie. We haven't heard much since then, but Feige did address the character earlier this year. "I think Blade is a legacy character now, and I think it would be fun to do something with him one day," he said.
