The 1998 movie Blade starring Wesley Snipes as Eric Brooks a.k.a. Blade saved Marvel’s cinema prospects entirely, and also revived the superhero genre. Much of the success was due to Wesley Snipes performance as the half human half vampire hero. Before the Blade film came out Marvel filed for bankruptcy in 1996, and was in grave financial trouble at the time. They were forced to sell off Spider Man to Sony, The Incredible Hulk to Paramount, Daredevil, X-Men, and The Fantastic Four to 21st Century Fox. Things weren't looking good for Marvel, but they took a gamble on the Blade film, and it paid off. Marvel spent 45 million making the first Blade film and earned 131 million making the movie a box office success. The Blade Trilogy of films made 415 million in their entirety. What makes this a remarkable story is that Blade in the comics is a C list character, but Wesley Snipes breathed new life into the character, and made it a profitable venture for Marvel when they were in dire need of money.

The first Blade film that was directed by Stephen Norrington was well received, as was the second film that was directed by Guillermo Del Toro. The third film that was directed by David S Goyer had a lukewarm reception due to the storyline. Wesley Snipes had a different vision for the third film, but was forced to go along with the script. Wesley's vision for Blade 3 was one of a post apocalyptic future where vampires took over. Sadly we never got to see his vision realized, but a fourth movie in the series would fix that, and could bring Wesley's vision to reality.

Eight years after the third film was released vicious rumors were spread about Wesley's composure, and behavior on the set of Blade 3 by a minor actor in the film. Some of which were completely false while others were embelished greatly. The truth is that Wes was rightfully upset about the changes to the story, and turned against the project. This caused friction on the set of the third film, and in hindsight Wesley was right because the third film is the least liked in the trilogy. Many critics also don't seem to realize, or want to acknowledge that Wesley was not only the main star of the movie, but he was also one of the film's producers. This means that he was an authority on the set of the film, and he had every right to contest things on the set of the movie that he didn't like.  

Things went quiet with the Blade series for many years, but then in 2018 word got out that Wesley Snipes was in talks with Marvel to reprise his role as Blade. Wesley Snipes fans, and Blade fans rejoiced. Then came the crushing news that Mahershala Ali interfered by calling up Kevin Feige at Marvel asking for the role, and they just gave it to him. Wesley Snipes fans were, and still are furious about the decision to recast the role instead of letting Wes reprise his role as Blade. Snipes helped Marvel when they were in desperate need to survive, and Marvel stabbed Snipes in the back. That's completely, and utterly unacceptable. Marvel needs to right their wrong by making a Blade 4 movie with Wesley Snipes, and we will not stop until it happens. Join us in our fight to bring back Wesley Snipes as Blade, and sign the petition to make Blade 4 a reality !!!
