With Marvel setting up what looks to be a Marvel Knights type universe on TV with the proposed Netflix series, I'm guessing that's where we might see Blade again. The movie series was financially solid but not overwhelming. All he does is vampires; he'd be better interacting with Marvel's streetwise characters - Daredevil, Punisher, Power Man & Iron Fist, Moon Knight, Shang Chi - rather than the Avengers.

Heck no, I know were running out of black leading men but lets be real. I actually think Boseman is the perfect choice these days. He's on the rise, he's pretty big and could be a physical freak in no time. Plus he can actually act and has range. And his voice is strong, he could pull of the commanding presence.

Didn't black panther have a brother who turned into a supervillain called White Jackal or something like that? Maybe he turns heel in the movie and teems up with Klaw or something. There are rumors that Black panther is actually going to make an appearance in Avengers 2.
There are many other reasons why I don't want Snipes as Black Panther, but this was a good reason. Old, Hasbeen, and I don't want Blade playing BP. I agree that Chadwick or Chiwetel would both be FAR superior choices. Also, you really want to cast someone that can carry the role for years to come. Another reason Snipes is not a good option. Back in the 90's? Heck yes, I'd agree with you there. But this isn't the 90's.
