Watch: Everything Wrong With Blade

Watch everything wrong with the 1998 Blade movie starring Wesley Snipes from the CinemaSins YouTube channel.

The Blade movie grossed $131 million and change at the box office and spawned two successful sequels.

There’s actually be talk of doing more Blade movies with Snipes stating he would come back to the role. Snipes even said he would like Blade to take a bite out of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. There has also been a rumor of Blade being rebooted with a female character.

Blade was directed by Stephen Norrington and written by David S. Goyer also starring Stephen Dorff, Kris Kristofferson, N’Bushe Wright, and Donal Logue.


Wesley Snipes Says Ball Is In Marvel’s Court For More Blade


Will we ever see Blade again?

If Wesley Snipes has anything to say about it, the answer is yes.

Snipes took to Twitter to stay Blade is still a possibility — at least for him.

“When it comes to another BLADE, there’s always a possibility,” Snipes said.

Wesley Snipes then followed up the tweet with, “Balls in Marvels court…”

Snipes starred in the Blade franchise back in the 90s which netted over a billion dollars in revenue.

It’s rumored/speculated Blade may show up in some form on the Marvel Netflix series, quite possibly as a female version.


Blade Trailer, Danger Room & Halloween Revealed For Marvel Heroes 2015

Check out a batch of screenshots and info for Marvel Heroes 2015 including Blade, the Danger Room and the Halloween add-ons.

Playable Blade and Other Halloween Happenings
Is there a more appropriate Halloween addition to Marvel Heroes 2015 thanBlade? As the game’s 52nd playable character, the Daywalker enters the scene voiced by Dave Fennoy and dressed in attire inspired by amazing comic covers designed by Marko Djurdjevic for Blade’s 2006 series.

“On the surface Blade shares many qualities of other Marvel Heroes characters, but what makes him special are his flare and his vampiric powers,” says Gazillion’s Anthony Gallegos, who designed the character. “To really capture both of these, we looked to all pop-culture perceptions of Blade, taking note of what our fans were asking for and seeing how those worked into this storied Marvel character.

“The result is one of the flashier heroes we’ve ever made,” Gallegos continues. “Blade oozes style with his moves, a sort of confidence in his power that only further expresses his ferocity. Combine his awesome movement with his cool vampire-inspired powers and gameplay style, and I think he will play in a wholly different way from any character players have seen before.”

Blade’s original costume from TOMB OF DRACULA #10 is also available now as an alternate look.

Also available for Halloween:
· Franken-Castle enters the scene as a Team-Up – available for a limited time!
· The Symbiote Wolverine Enhanced Costume, inspired by the cover of NEW AVENGERS #35, comes with new animations and new voiceover by the incomparable Steve Blum.

The Infinitely Replayable Danger Room
The Danger Room comes our way November – but what makes it cool? We asked Michael May, Game Systems and Character Designer at Gazillion. “The Danger Room is an all-new experience, built for level 60-plus players of every skill and gear level. Inside, players are able to activate and enter ‘scenarios’ – randomly generated dungeons with affixes that alter the gameplay experience. In one scenario, you might have the challenge of not being able to use a healing medkit, but in exchange, have reduced cooldowns on all of your powers. Another scenario might amplify all enemies in the scenario with a particular affix, while also populating the area with dangerous landmines. The level of difficulty of these scenarios is variable – the easiest ones can be played the moment you reach level 60, but the hardest ones will require a combination of skill, strategy, and gear to complete. You decide how hard you want it to be and what level of challenge you want to play.”

And in Case You Missed It…
·  The “All-New All-Different” content released earlier this month has proven incredibly popular. If you haven’t seen the Spider-Gwen Team-Up or the new looks for Captain Marvel (the new in-game default codename for Carol Danvers, formerly Ms. Marvel), Thor (Jane Foster), Scarlet Witch or X-23 as the All-New Wolverine, what are you waiting for?

Marvel Heroes 2016 has also been announced for next year.

Head to to play.


Wesley Snipes Wants Blade To Bite Scarlett Johansson

The past couple of Comic-Cons saw Wesley Snipes make mention he would do another Blade film, with most recently the actor teasing talks with Marvel, and now Snipes offers more while talking with the Huff Post.

“There’s always a possibility,” Snipes said about another Blade movie. “It’s in Marvel’s hands, and they are controlling the pace and flow with that. Conversations have been good. They see the value in it. We see the value in it,. I’m still in shape enough and fit enough to handle the role. We’ll see where it goes. I don’t really know what’s going to happen to it yet.”

The interview continues with mention of Blade being featured in an Avengers movie, with Snipes noting Blade would have to bite someone and jokes it should be Black Widow.

“That would be interesting,” Snipes replied about Blade and the Avengers. “I mean, I know it’s in the comic book. It would be interesting to see where they would place him and where he really would fit in. He’s got to bite somebody. I don’t know who he’s going to bite… Scarlett Johansson [laughs].”

The most recent rumors surrounding Blade have suggested a new female Blade movie, and Snipes has even teased playing a different character that could go toe to toe with Blade.

You can watch the full interview with Wesley Snipes below:


Female Blade Marvel Movie Rumored


While Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow doesn’t look to be getting a movie any time soon, it’s being rumored that Marvel Studios may be going forth with a female Blade movie.

There has been talk as of late regarding Wesley Snipes returning for a role at Marvel, which now may be for the female Blade movie.

Bleeding Cool cites sources in the know that state the reason for the delay in launching the new female Blade Marvel Comics comic book is because the character will be featured in a new Blade movie.

It’s suggested that Snipes may return for a possible fatherly role.

Blade launched back in 1998 becoming a billion dollar franchise and spawning sequels. The rights recently reverted back to Marvel, so if the rumors are true, Marvel may be further diversifying their line with a female Blade flick. Presently, Marvel only has Captain Marvel in the works as their sole female movie project.

Another possibility is the female Blade project may actually be a Netflix series, as Snipes previously hinted at being involved with Netflix as well.


Wesley Snipes Teases New Character Who Can Take On Blade


Back at last month’s Comic-Con saw Wesley Snipes tease a return to Marvel with possibly a Netflix series.

Blade stated he has another project possibly in the works “that’s going to rock’em,” and now we hear more from Snipes who further teased the project at the SDCC.

Snipes spoke with CBR at Comic-Con, who finally published the interview, with Snipes mentioning if he doesn’t do another Blade, there is another character he may go with.

Well, we’ve had some discussions. We have had very positive and favorable discussions about the Blade character and other things they have in mind. We’ll see where it goes. For those Blade fans, if we never reprise Blade, I have another character that will stand toe to toe with Blade any day. It’s not done yet.

It should be noted that both times Snipes doesn’t specifically refer to the character as being a part of Marvel, just that the character can go “toe to toe” with Blade.

Is it possible Wesley Snipes is up for a DC role in their new Expanded Universe?

Or is Snipes in talks for another Marvel role? Any ideas who?


Wesley Snipes Says More Blade Is A Strong Possibility; Teases Netflix (Video)

A couple of days ago saw Wesley Snipes mention he has been in talks with Marvel for more Blade, and now in the above video mentions a further possibility.

While promoting his latest TV series, The Player, IGN asks Wesley Snipes about more Blade.

“I can break this story right now,” Wesley Snipes said, which looks to be taken as sarcasm. “Marvel and I, Wesley Snipes, have decided to have further conversations doing another Blade.”

Snipes then took a slightly more serious approach continuing: “It’s a topic of conversation. It’s inescapable. They have their agenda. We have ours. We are both moving in an accelerated pace to create magic, so we’ll see if it all matches up. There’s a strong possibility, but if not, we have another project that’s going to rock ’em… that will stand toe-to-toe with Blade.”

With Snipes mentioning another project, he’s asked about having interest playing potential other characters, but is pretty mum.

“Yes, there are, but we’ll leave that for our next meeting,” Snipes said. “We’ll talk about that a little later.”

With Daredevil being such a success, Snipes is asked about the possibility of Blade appearing in some capacity on Netflix, with his answer perhaps hinting that is what the talks are about with Marvel.

“You mean Blade on Netflix without Wesley?” Snipes questioned with a laugh. “It will never work. I can’t see that working at all [laughs].” 



Now There Is A Female Blade

Add one more PC character to Marvel’s ever growing list as the latest to get replaced is Blade, which interestingly enough follows the earlier news that Wesley Snipes had talked with Marvel about Blade 4.

Images leaked online from a Marvel Comics retailer exclusive event from Comic-Con revealing the new female Blade and more.

Wesley Snipes Would Do Another Blade


Wesley Snipes is currently at Comic-Con for his new TV series The Player where the actor also let it be known he is interested in doing another Blade movie.

Deadline spoke with Snipes who stated there have been talks.

The project is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things. I don’t know where it’s on their schedule at this point, that hasn’t been decided. I guess it’s still up in the air.

Wesley Snipes also says another potential Marvel role could be seen some time down the road.

That’s a possibility too. I’ve always been a fan of these pieces and adaptations and I’d be nice to be a part of the family again. But if we don’t to a Blade 4 or something else with Marvel, we’ll do something else. We have some other characters and some other concepts that are going to be just as exciting and hopefully just as successful. The first season of The Player will be interesting as well because we have drama and action, which is what I like. It gives me a chance to do a number of different things.

Snipes also comments on whether the “tide is turning” with there being more African-American superheroes, such as Marvel’s Falcon and Black Panther.

I don’t know. It’s takes more than one situation to make it a trend. One wouldn’t qualify it as a trend or a real shift in the tides yet. We’ll have to see how well the films do and how well the characters are presented. Clearly there’s an audience for it, both domestically and internationally. And I know that only a few guys can do this, so it’s kind of hard. Not everybody can do the comic book adaptation thing and make it believable. It is challenging.

Blade kicked off in 1998 and became a billion dollar franchise, and with Doctor Strange being the start of the supernatural side of the MCU, perhaps there is room for more of Snipes as the vampire hunting superhero.


Blade Featured With Howard The Duck & A Racist Watermelon Joke in Battleworld #2

Secret Wars: Battleworld #2 was released this week from Marvel Comics which features none other than Blade and Howard The Duck.

As we all know, Marvel has been going the PC route by “diversifying” their characters.

It seems Marvel ED may have let this one slip by as we are guessing the PC Police wouldn’t be too thrilled with the context.

However, we guess it’s okay because it’s written by Shaft writer David Walker.

Anybody else… well, that’s probably a different story.

Check it out:



Wesley Snipes Said To Be Back For Fourth Blade Movie


A month after Wesley Snipes stated he would like to return to the Blade franchise, it is reported the actor has signed a $3 million deal to reprise in the fourth Blade installment.

It appears the info is coming from The New York Daily News, with other outlets following suit, such as the Toronto Sun.

Snipes recently stated he would be open to Blade, and felt he could do it better:

Yeah. Yeah. I’d be open to it. I think we have some stones left unturned, and there’s some latitude for us to build on. I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now. Some of the things we did in the early Blade franchise were experimental, and now they have become customary in the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations.

The first Blade film debuted in 1998 written by David S. Goyer, which spawned two sequels with the movie gross and merchandising rights bringing in around a billion dollars.

Marvel Studios owns the rights to Blade as well as Ghost Rider. 

If this information holds true (New York Daily News is a gossip site), perhaps we’ll see vampires and the horror element introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Doctor Strange does have a horror director with Scott Derrickson attached; so maybe a Blade Nightstalkers flick could be in the works following Strange at some point.


Wesley Snipes Wants To Do Another Blade


Wesley Snipes lets it be known he wants to return to the billion dollar franchise with Blade, and he also offers he thinks they can do it better today.

Snipes was at Comic-Con for The Expendables 3, and while there, MTV caught up with the actor and asked if he would like a return to Blade.

Snipes offered:

Yeah. Yeah. I’d be open to it. I think we have some stones left unturned, and there’s some latitude for us to build on. I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now. Some of the things we did in the early Blade franchise were experimental, and now they have become customary in the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations.

Blade kicked off in 1998, written by David S. Goyer, spawning two sequels with the movie and merchandising gross coming close to bringing in a billion dollars.

The film rights to Blade have since reverted back to Disney/Marvel, with David Goyer stating back in January of 2013 that he thinks it will eventually be rebooted. 

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also confirmed a while back that Marvel has Blade as well as Ghost Rider and Punisher, but he did offer they need to find the right time to move forward with them.

Who knows? Maybe Wesley Snipes will create some interest and Marvel will move forward with their horror genre, perhaps with Doctor Strange leading the way. Blade was associated with the Nightstalkers, a team of heroes taking on things that go bump in the night. That could work.


David Goyer Explains His Comic Book Origins: How Batman & Blade Led To Da Vinci’s Demons


David Goyer‘s new TV series, Da Vinci’s Demons, premiers this month on Starz which has been compared to Batman as well as Dracula.

Now in a guest-column for Wired, the writer explains how everything came to be, from early on with his first comic book to the Man of Steel and beyond.

Goyer says that growing up, a large influence on his life was one of his first comic books, an issue of Marvel Preview featuring Blade that he shoplifted.

My path to creating the TV show Da Vinci’s Demons began with petty larceny. It was 1975—I was 9—and my meager allowance allowed me to purchase just a single comic book a week. I got around that limit by shoplifting. Shameful, yes, but one of the first items I stole set my entire career in motion. It was an issue of Marvel Preview, a secondary line that showcased characters who were too violent for mainstream comics. The one I swiped featured a vampire hunter named Blade. That first exposure piqued my interest in Dracula; as a child, I even wrote a story in which Batman and Blade teamed up against the bloodsucker.

David Goyer continues with mention of how that led to the devlopment of the Blade movie and into Batman and the new Superman film.

Blade gave birth to the modern comic book film. Back then Marvel had zero interest in exploiting a tertiary character. But the picture got made, and it spawned sequels, action figures, videogames, even a TV series. Its success convinced studios that there was a market not just for iconic creations like Superman but for minor characters too. Years later Christopher Nolan read my Blade script and asked me to help him reimagine Batman—that’s where the electrostatic flocking of the hero’s cape came from. Suddenly the character I most wanted to write was there on a silver platter. Batman Begins became a trilogy and led to my modernizing Superman for Man of Steel.

From there we are told how his latest project, Da Vinci’s Demons, came to be, and it started with Batman Annual #18 which featured a story about Leonardno da Vinci.

The year I pitched Blade I also bought a copy of Batman Annual #18, in which a Renaissance-era Batman gets entangled with Leonardo da Vinci and a coup attempt known as the Pazzi Conspiracy. 

Goyer continues with mention that the BBC wanted him to pitch a show about a historical program, but the writer had no interest in the past, with the BBC countering they wanted the Batman Begins version. And that’s when everything came together.

I told them I preferred envisioning tomorrows over yesterdays; they countered by saying they wanted the Batman Begins version of yesterday. So I thought. And I recalled that Batman creator Bob Kane had based Batman’s cape on da Vinci’s glider wings. Kismet. Then I remembered my Batman Annual #18 and realized that da Vinci shared other characteristics with Bruce Wayne: Both men had traumatic experiences in caves, both were inventors, both had daddy issues.

Goyer then pitched Da Vinci’s Demons with the series getting green lit on Starz. 

And the sixth episode features Dracula.

As I was cleaning out my office while prepping to shoot the series, I found that tattered old Marvel Preview again. I did some research and discovered that Vlad Dracula, the historical antecedent for Dracula, had been alive when our series took place. Full circle. Vlad and da Vinci share an adventure in episode six—just a few weeks before Man of Steel opens in June. Thank my life of juvenile crime.

Da Vinci’s Demons premiers April 12th at 10pm ET on Starz.
