New “Blade,” “Fantastic Four” Rumors

New Blade Fantastic Four Rumors

Another week, and some more Marvel movie rumors are added to the mix.

First up, a new report at We Got This Covered suggests Marvel is quietly working on an R-rated “Blade” movie with Wesley Snipes expected to return in some capacity in a ‘passing of the torch’ style film which will see him training his daughter – possibly Fallon Grey from the comics.

Snipes raised eyebrows last year when he revealed that he has two different “Blade” projects he was having discussions with Marvel about. Disney chairman Alan Horn also recently suggested that under the Fox banner they can make R-rated movies that the studio wouldn’t be able to otherwise.

The same site also reports a rumor that a new “Fantastic Four” film is already in development, this one a cosmic adventure that would see the twenty and thirty-something team exploring space. In addition, Doctor Doom will not be the film’s villain.

Neither report has been confirmed, so treat purely as rumor at this point.
