Was going to happen sooner or later, so it could also have happened now. When the new actors take up the torch of the superheroes that were already played For other actors, apparently it is law that the veteran actor will have to speak about the matter. Mahershala Ali is going to be playing blade in a few years, and that means Wesley Snipes must give some kind of verbal blessing for all of us to see, lest Ali turn down the role of shame.

Snipes was recently asked about his thoughts on the recast, and he clearly stated that he supported the casting and that’s it. “The issue of him being cast wasn’t between us,” Snipes said, “I don’t walk like Blade, so I’m not attached to the character that way.” Furthermore, he added that there is no “emotional loss” in not playing the Daywalker again, and the only advice is that Ali should avoid getting hurt and “enjoy it while it lasts.” (“Looks great” was not said, because Ali already looks great most of the time).

Snipes has been the only actor to play Blade in the movies, albeit in the short duration Sword series for SpikeTV, was portrayed by Kirk “Sticky” Jones. Given that it hasn’t been endlessly rebooted yet as Spider-Man or the Fantastic Four and hasn’t really been in lengthy cinematic narratives like most Avengers, no one really knows what to expect from this remake other than that it will be killing. vampires That, and also eventually crossing paths with whoever counts as an Avenger these days.

Whenever the new Sword gets to release, you will have more freedom to play with canon something loose the character has had in comics throughout the decades. Maybe some of that involves a cameo for Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, and anyone else who’s willing to show up … which probably includes Ryan Reynolds as well.
