Wesley Snipes says he's been in contact with Marvel about multiple projects set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - including, potentially, a return to his role as Blade.

"There are a lot of conversations going around right now and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something coming from that world again," Snipes told Vice when asked about the potential for a fourth Blade film. "We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world and, when people see them, I think they’re only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love the most."
It's unclear whether Snipes' potential Marvel projects are specifically tied to Blade, or are based on other Marvel properties. As for when any of these projects may surface, Snipes says the ball is in Marvel's court.
"All the main execs [at Marvel] and my team, we’ve been discussing for the past two years," Snipes explained. "Everyone’s enthusiastic about it, everybody gets it. But they got a business to run and they gotta square the things that they gotta figure out before they can get to it, I guess. In the meantime, we got a business to run and our own slate of things to do so…"
Still, Snipes is confident more Blade related material will find its way to fans.
"But the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now," the actor concluded.
