Anthony Mackie Expresses Interest In Playing Blade

Anthony Mackie has landed one of the best roles in Hollywood- he plays the superhero Falcon in the incredibly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, although Falcon is certainly a great role, Mackie has recently expressed interest in another comic book character. At WizardCon, Mackie stated that he would like to play the role of Blade, the vampire slayer previously portrayed by Wesley Snipes. Here’s what he had to say:

“I pretty much want to grow up to be Wesley Snipes. If we can bring back Blade, I’d definitely be Blade in every Blade movie.”

What do you think of Mackie’s comments? Would you like to see Mackie star in a Blade movie?
