BLADE RETURNS: SOON WE HOPE
in 1998, Wesley Snipes brought us Blade, is one of the films that serves as the cornerstone for the building of the Marvel Comics Universe on film. It was and still is one of the coolest, edgiest modern day vampire slayer film.
Blade is a classic action film about to get a reboot. Blade is a fun, dark, delightfully violent action movie. The protagonist isn't really a good guy but he's doing us all a big favor by taking out his revenge on the vampires he hunts.
Blade possesses all of a vampire's strengths but not their weaknesses. His superhuman strength, stamina, senses, and accelerated healing works perfectly for this incredible skilled fighter.

The character will be played by Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali. Details about this Blade reboot are not being shared with any of us, but stay tuned.
