To say Marvel is killing the movie game would be an understatement. Like, just this weekend we learned that after only two weeks in theaters, Captain America: Civil War, has officially earned over $1 billion at the box office. That's insane.

Snapes tweeted that he's open to the idea of becoming Blade once more:
