Wesley Snipes recently responded to his rumored return as Blade in an upcoming MCU project.

For the past few months, there have been rumors around the web that Snipes is set to reprise his signature role in Deadpool and Wolverine and potentially another MCU film such as Avengers: Secret Wars where it is also expected to be cameo-heavy.

So far, Marvel Studios has not made any confirmation surrounding Snipes's return, but a lot of fans would love to see the veteran actor get another shot to play the iconic daywalker again.

In his recent post on X, Snipes addressed the rumor surrounding his return as Blade in the MCU.

He shared an article that reported his rumored return as the daywalker and accompanied it with the brief caption "Whuhuuuut?" and an eyes emoji.

While Snipes was playing coy in his reaction to the rumor, a lot of fans can't still help but speculate on whether the actor was hinting that the reports might be true after all.

We've seen recently in the MCU that they now have the penchant to bring back the actors who starred in the Marvel movies that predated the current franchise such as the Fox X-Men actors.

Fans have also been clamoring for Snipes to return as the daywalker, especially with the multiverse aspect of the MCU at the moment and it would be great for them to see the actor explore the character at this particular time.

For now, let's wait and see whether Snipes' return as Blade will come to fruition and perhaps we will be able to find out soon enough in the upcoming release of Deadpool and Wolverine this summer.
