RUMOR: DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE Rumor Claims To Set Record Straight On Plans For Wesley Snipes' Blade - SPOILERS

Wesley Snipes' name keeps coming up when it comes to a possible MCU cameo and, just days after fans were left convinced they'd spotted Sticky Fingaz in Deadpool & Wolverine, we have an intriguing update.

There's been chatter online about Wesley Snipes returning as Blade for months now. With Multiversal movies like Deadpool & Wolverine and Avengers: Secret Wars on the horizon, rumours like these are par for the course and chances are the majority will be proven false.

That was the case with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, though we'd be remiss not to point out that social media scoopers spoiled plans for John Krasinski to show up as Mister Fantastic weeks before the sequel arrived in theaters. 

Snipes showing up in the upcoming Deadpool threequel always seemed unlikely given his past with Ryan Reynolds and, earlier this week, many fans were left convinced that they'd found the small screen Daywalker played by Sticky Fingaz in a still for the movie. 

Well, scooper @MyTimeToShineH has chimed in today, confirming Snipes' Blade will appear in Deadpool & Wolverine

That's all we have for you right now but if this is correct, then it's going to make a lot of fans very happy. Snipes played the iconic vampire hunter in Blade, Blade II, and Blade: Trinity, with the latter featuring Reynolds' Hannibal King. 

This isn't the first time we've heard this rumour, of course, but it may be the closest we've come to "confirmation."

"It's always overblown," Reynolds previously said of supposedly clashing with Snipes on set. "My personality is the polar opposite of Wesley. I never met Wesley, I only met Blade, and he is a method actor. Say what you want about that style of acting, I have the utmost respect for whatever it takes to get through this process."

"We all say that these actors make so much money and they live such a life of leisure and privilege, but that is a vulnerable process, stepping onto the set everyday and performing in front of 110 judgmental souls. So whatever it takes for him or anyone else to get through that in a way that is artistically fulfilling to them, I have the utmost respect for."

"I don't know if I ever got him to laugh, the guy's Blade," the actor added. "Hopefully on the inside, he's laughing kind of on the inside, I don't know? It was a challenging process. I've never experienced anything like that."

Here's how Snipes recently reacted to claims he's set to appear in the MCU:

Shawn Levy directs Deadpool & Wolverine, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Matthew Macfadyen. The movie is written by Ryan Reynolds & Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Zeb Wells & Shawn Levy.

The trades have confirmed that Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra, with Wesley Snipes, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Dafne Keen, Channing Tatum, Blake Lively and even singer Taylor Swift among those rumoured to make an appearance. 

Kevin Feige, Reynolds, Levy and Lauren Shuler Donner produce with Louis D’Esposito, Wendy Jacobson, Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, George Dewey, Simon Kinberg and Jonathon Komack Martin serving as executive producers.

Deadpool & Wolverine arrives in theaters on July 26.

I have a scoop for you: every main character that has appeared in a non-MCU Marvel movie will appear in D&W. And if they don't appear there, they'll show in Secret Wars

@bkmeijer1 - or Star Wars for epic but failed crossovers.

If true i'm so hyped to see him even if it's just for a few seconds. Maybe it's nostalgia playing tricks on me maybe this is a bad idea but I wants to see it.

@Typhoon20 - We've seen a lot of universes since this multiverse saga began. But I doubt there's even one where Snipes coming back as Blade is a bad idea.

Guessing we'll get a "rumour" in a few days saying Wesley isn't in it.

I'm sure Blade will ask Hannibal what the hell happened to his face.

Would be awesome, and we all know it. No need to trust it though. We’ll see.

Not only would it be great to see Snipes, but I could almost guarantee Snipes wouldn't be like he was in Trinity...off set.

That burned his reputation and he hasn't made anything of note since. Plus with the whole tax evasion fiasco years back, he could probably use any scraps thrown at him to help repair both issues.

Snipes is a great actor with a phenomenal resume and he deserves a lot better than a throwaway joke in an MCU cluster[frick]. They should just give him another Blade movie or like Jungle Fever 2 haha.

I would normally call BS but Snipes making the Twitter post he did makes me think otherwise.

Might even be setting him up for Secret Wars too.

Guess we shall see.

Just have him play Blade in the actual MCU flick and retroactively make his trilogy part of the sacred timeline on a broad strokes level.
