How Wesley Snipes Reacted to Blade News

Even though X-Men started the modern comic book movie craze in 2000, and Iron Man pioneered the idea of a massive shared cinematic universe for superheroes, Blade deserves some credit for digging into Marvel Comics before both of them. The half-vampire, half-human character played by Wesley Snipes delivered some solid action and plenty of blood, and it still has some very passionate fans who were not very pleased when Marvel Studios announced Green Book star Mahershala Ali would be the new Blade.
