Let it begin! Discuss the Daywalker coming to the MCU.
Wesley Snipes forever! #freewesley
I’m guessing no Whistler since that was a character created just for the movie. But still seems like he needs a partner or someone to have conversations with. I wonder if they are going to do a real origin story or just drop us right into the middle of it, something I appreciated about the original movie.
Nah we all know that Sticky Fingaz is the one and only Blade.
This movie isn't coming out until Phase 5 and who knows how far along it'll be for that. But I'm looking forward to it eventually.
Double Toasted joked that Wesley Snipes could now play Cottonmouth in a rebooted Luke Cage movie.
Since we have a Blade forum now, any chance of taking all the old archived Blade threads from before and putting them in a sub forum for the old Blade films and TV series?
I'm guessing it'll be 2022, maybe '23. We still have a Black Panther, Captain Marvel sequel and the 3rd Guardians after what is already announced. A small role in Doctor Strange 2 isn't out of the question though.
Glad to see this already has its own subforum though
Cannot wait to see MCU vampires!
Yeah, and the next Spidey will probably beat it too.
Exclusive! Wesley Snipes Responds to Marvel Rebooting Blade
Much respect to Snipes, all class. You will always be the patriarch of the modern Superhero genre.
I hope they go the more monstrous vampires route instead of just dudes with fangs. Also helps maintain the PG-13 rating when you're decapitating monsters.
Hopefully Wesley lands a role in the movie as well.
Ali's response to Snipes.
The fact the Marvel could land Ali after the disgraceful way they treated him in Luke Cage j/k lol
Man never would I have imagined he would accept this after the second Oscar but I'm glad I was wrong
Snipes deserves a role in this
Should the try to mimic the leather trench coat with sunglasses look? Feel like Snipes owned that look so well, they shouldn’t try to recreate it.
What about Snipes as whistler?
My vote is no. The laconic black leather wearing half-vampire martial artist version of Blade was (mostly) created by and for Mr. Snipes. There's room to update the character for Mr. Ali without completely turning off fans of the original series.
That would be cool. IMHO, Snipes was the definition of swagger as Blade. It's going to be hard for anyone to live up to him as Blade. Ali is the only one I trust to get close.
Andre Holland needs to be in this. or anywhere in the MCU.
As much as I want the OG wesley in the MCU, I dont want to put him in the Whistler role because it would take away from Mahershela's take.
As I've said elsewhere Ali, with his recent breakthrough roles within the last few years, seems to be superb at playing intimidating men who turn out to be more surprisingly human and vulnerable than expected. Dare I say it I can see Ali play the tragedy that fuels the character,a man who is isolated from humanity yet despises his vampire heritage, far better than Wes did.
They should include this song in the MCU Blade
Blood Rave...the song they played in the original 1998 Blade when the bloodbath happens and Blade makes his entrance into the vampire nightclub
That should be Blade's theme song
Really hoping this is the launch of the Marvel Knights imprint of the MCU. Blade should be Rated R. Not everything has to necessary be connected. I have no need for Blade to team up with Captain Marvel or be in an Avengers movie. Marvel Knights can be mid budget films so that the R rating can be profitable. Blade, Moon Knight, Deadpool and Ghost Rider can all be part of the imprint.
Some mother****ers always tryin to ice skate uphill
Hope they give Blade famous one liners like this
