Silver wanted none other than Meryl Streep to play Stallone’s long-lost offspring.

In a couple of weeks, Black Panther will be hitting the big screen as the latest franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chadwick Boseman is playing the superhero, who was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, but his first big screen appearance almost happened over 25 years ago when DC Comics was dominating the superhero movie scene and leaving Marvel in the dust…and when Wesley Snipes was at the top of his game.
That’s right, the 1990s almost saw an adaptation of Black Panther that would have featured Wesley Snipes as a comic book character years before he became Marvel’s vampire hunter Blade. For the first time ever, Snipes recently opened up about the development of the project, who was on the shortlist to direct, and what drew him to the superhero in the first place.

Over the years, there’s been speculation, rumors, and stories about how or when we might see Blade return, but rarely is there any news confirming any movement on another Blade film. We heard about Wesley Snipes‘ desire to play the daywalker again, a possible Netflix series from Marvel Studios, a rumored film about Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey, and, just the other day, Kate Beckinsale said they once discussed bringing Blade into the Underworld franchise. Beckinsale said Marvel had plans for the character, so that’s one of the reasons why it didn’t work out, but according to Marvel President Kevin Feige, there aren’t any immediate plans for the vampire slayer.
Below, get the latest Blade update from Feige.

Over the past couple years, there has been plenty of discussion about the future of Marvel’s vampire hybrid character Blade. Brought to the big screen before the comic book craze truly began with X-Men in 2000, Blade was played by Wesley Snipes for three films, including one directed by Guillermo del Toro and one starring future comic book star Ryan Reynolds. But since then, fans have been hoping for more.
We’ve heard rumblings of Blade 4 with Wesley Snipes coming back as the titular character, a potential Netflix TV series from Marvel Studios (who reacquired the rights to the character in 2013) and even a movie following Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey. Now confirmation of some kind of Marvel project comes from a surprising source: Underworld star Kate Beckinsale.
