There's a pretty good interview with Neil Jackson over at FlickDirect. While there's no real word on the future of the Blade series, there's some good info on some of Jackson's other projects as well as what he would like to see if there was a second season of Blade.
From the interview:
What changes would you have liked to see in your character if there was a second season of Blade?
Power is an aphrodisiac, and I would liked to have seen Marcus become obsessed by his own power. He was so calm and collected in the first season, it would be great to see him lose it a little.
What is your role in your upcoming film "The Thirst"?
I play 'Duke', an eighteenth century fop, turned vampire (seems to be a theme here!). I actually shot this before getting Blade, and they had to release me from shooting early one day to make my meeting with Peter O'Fallan for the role of Marcus.
As you can see, he doesn't really go into the odds of whether or not Blade will be coming back. He definitely sounds like he'd very much love to bring out some even darker sides to Marcus - something I think we'd all like to see.
It's also interesting that he's been cast as yet another vampire in a new movie. Hopefully he doesn't get locked into doing only vampire roles (I doubt that this will happen), because he's a great actor and I'd love to see him take on some different characters in the future.
