Blade

This is one of those moments in filmmaking where we have to accept the way things are and just move on. Characters being recast in reboots is one of those things that just happens. But when news broke that two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali will be playing the title role in a new Blade movie, the reaction was mixed.

While some have praised the casting, others aren’t so fond of it and consider Wesley Snipes to be their Blade. Now Snipes has made a statement, and has called upon those Blade fans to “chillaaxx.” More on the report below.

Blade title card Marvel Studios

It never ceases to amaze me what surprises Marvel Studios can bring to any geeky convention, especially one as large as the San Diego Comic-Con. While we can expect to hear about sequels and confirmations of certain titles, they have been known to catch everyone, and I mean everyone, off guard. Take, for instance, them announcing that Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali will play the title role in Blade.

Marvel Anime: BladeMarvel Anime: Blade
DVD | Instant Video
Directed by Mitsuyuki Masuhara
Written by Warren Ellis
Starring Harold Perrineau, Kim Mai Guest, JB Blanc, Troy Baker
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
Release Date: July 31, 2012

Marvel Anime: Blade is the last of the first wave of Marvel DVD releases of anime versions of their characters produced by Japanese animation company Madhouse. These anime series aired in Japan originally, were dubbed in English, aired on G4, and were then collected on DVD and Blu-ray.

Blade is Eric Brooks, a half-human, half-vampire hybrid known as “The Daywalker” because sunlight does not affect him. While Blade’s mom was pregnant with him, she was attacked by the vampire Deacon Frost, resulting in Blade’s unique nature. Blade struggled to control his bloodlust until he met Noah Van Helsing, an old vampire slayer. He taught Blade to control his urges and Blade began training and traveling the world, vowing revenge on Deacon Frost and seeking the destruction of the vampire race.

Patton Oswalt Gets Brutally Honest About The Failures Of ‘Blade: Trinity’

Patton Oswalt

When the first Blade movie hit theater screens in August of 1998 it became a surprise smash hit and accomplished several noteworthy goals: it gave Wesley Snipes an iconic movie hero in the mold of Rambo and John McClane to call his own, spawned one of New Line Cinema’s most lucrative franchises since the heyday of Freddy Krueger and the Ninja Turtles, and it proved that Marvel Comics characters could successfully headline their own motion picture adventures, thus paving the way for Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Avengers to rule the box office in the years that followed. It took four years for a sequel to come together but with Guillermo Del Toro at the helm, Blade II surpassed the original in every way and became one of the best comic book movie sequels of all. The rapturous reception from moviegoers and critics that greeted Blade II helped revive Del Toro’s American directing career.

Expectations were high for a third Blade movie; at one point German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall) was rumored to take the reins for a post-apocalyptic sequel that would have had Snipes’ monosyllabic vampire hunter continue his neverending battle in a world dominated by the bloodthirsty undead. Instead David S. Goyer, the screenwriter who was instrumental in bringing Blade to the big screen, signed on to write and direct the movie that would be released in December 2004 as Blade: Trinity. The end result has since been deemed by many to be one of the worse comic book movies ever made, if not the absolute worse. Make no mistake friends, if you’ve never seen the movie you’re not missing anything at all. It’s atrocious. In the annals of superhero it ranks with the likes of Superman IV: The Quest for Peace and Elektra. Blade: Trinity makes other maligned third chapters of comic book movie franchises like X-Men: The Last Stand and Spider-Man 3 look like masterpieces in comparison.

Sony To Use 9-Year-Old David Goyer Script For ‘Ghost Rider 2’
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Ghost Rider

Collider was able to talk to producer David Goyer recently, and he shared a fun little fact about the sequel that very few are looking forward to seeing: Ghost Rider 2. Goyer is best known as a writer who penned all three Blade movies and both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight (co-writer). He’s also done some directing, like his horror movie The Unborn; as well as a producer, bringing us the latest TV hit, Flash Forward.

The catch here is that when Goyer wrote the script, he wrote it in the same light as Blade: dark and violent with a hard R-rating. Sony, of course, wants nothing to do with that, so their plan is to clean it up and work it around to get the same PG-13 the first movie had.

Geeks of Doom's Exclusive Coverage of SDCC 2009

Warren Ellis at SDCC 09There were some big announcements this weekend at the Marvel Animation panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, the biggest of which had to be the line up for the Marvel Anime films. These films will be produced by Studio Madhouse, which been making some of the best anime for the last 25 years and had previously handled the artwork on the recent Hulk Vs. movie.

The four anime style films being made are Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men, and Blade. Comics writer Warren Ellis will handle the script for all four films. On hand at the panel was Madhouse Producer and Co-founder Masao Moruyama said that they will do everything in the power to get the films out as soon as possible.

The Iron Man and Wolverine films are scheduled to be out in (late) 2010, with the other two to be released presumably in 2011. Test animation for the Iron Man and Wolverine films was shown at the panel and it looks A-Maze-Ing! Ellis reported that the films are still in an early stage and he is actually still writing the Iron Man film. The Iron Man film will be set in Japan, and the preview showed Iron Man in a suit that looked very similar to the film suit as he battled across Tokyo. Ellis said that the Wolverine script will closely follow the Chris Claremont/Frank Miller miniseries from the 80’s. As a comics fan and an anime fan, I absolutely cannot wait for these.
