Blade, a character who has a special place in both the hearts of comic book fans and the general audience due to a trilogy of films starring Wesley Snipes that stretched from 1998 to 2004.
During an interview with We Got This Covered, Jon Watts expressed his interest in Blade and a few villains for the upcoming sequel, the first being Chameleon:
“Yeah, Chameleon’s cool. I wonder is it that cool of an ability nowadays? Like, we’d have to come up with a way to make him to be more than just that. But Chameleon is great and he’s also one of the earlier day villains. I mainly focused on the bad villains as just a joke because there are so many really silly guys. Like Big Wheel. [laughs] So I’ve kind of done the wrong research so far in who the next villain could be. Swarm…”
The interviewer then decided to bring the villainous, vampiric Spider-Man adversary “Morbius” into the mix, to which Jon gave an interesting response that involved everyone’s favorite Daywalker:
“The tone of the character is pretty dark, but the vampire/Marvel Universe thing is pretty cool. Maybe we could get Blade to show up, too? That’d be neat.”
