With the first installment of the Blade trilogy, which launched Marvel’s top vampire hunter to life, Wesley Snipes helped usher in a new age of superhero movies over 25 years ago. Wesley Snipes has had a significant return of sorts, but it wouldn’t be absurd to claim that his star doesn’t shine as brightly as it once did. Could this all lead to the 59-year-old actor accomplishing a longtime ambition by joining the Star Wars franchise?
Wesley Snipes still longs to visit a galaxy far, far away despite having made a career out of killing vampires and generating revenue at the box office. The Blade and White Men Can’t Jump actor, who had been a fan of the Star Wars series since the debut of Star Wars: A New Hope never had the opportunity to participate in the film series.
‘Ah, Mandalorian, that’d be fun too’ – Wesley Spines
The Blade actor revealed to ComicBook that he has been a fan of Star Wars since the very beginning and would want to participate in some form, maybe by appearing as a guest on The Mandalorian.
“Well, it would’ve been cool to be a part of the Star Wars universe,” Snipes explained. “Clearly I’m a fan from the ’70s. I remember going in the theater, having no idea what my friend was taking me to see, and mad at him for bringing me there initially, because I thought there was some Kung Fu movie that was a much better choice, and then being totally immersed into the world that they created, amazed by how they pulled it off, inspired in terms of, from an actor’s perspective. That would’ve been fun to be a part of.”

Snipes spoke of present Star Wars TV star Ming-Na Wen, who was his co-star in production back in 1997 when the notion of The Mandalorian came up as a potential opportunity for him to potentially join the franchise.

“Ah, Mandalorian, that’d be fun too,” he said. “She and I, the actress, Ming-Na Wen. We did a wonderful piece that was an award-winning piece, a drama, very different from the Marvel films that we’ve done after that. But it was called One Night Stand, it’s wonderful. You have to check it out one of these days, a relationship movie.”
Star Wars with Wesley Snipes? You can be sure he’d be a welcome addition to the story if he were given a few action sequences to show off his renowned ability to kick people in the face.
