Marvel’s preeminent supernatural hero, Snipes’ first two movies paved the way in which for the superhero style because it now exists. No Blade, no Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And that’s why it’s so shocking that Marvel, regardless of holding the keys to the Blade bandwagon, have been so reluctant to make use of the character. Snipes once more made noise a couple of potential reboot simply the opposite week, and Kate Beckinsale herself stated that plans for a Blade/Underworld crossover had been shelved on the behest of Marvel themselves however a number of quick years in the past.
