How does /co/ feel about Blade?

>>79658193
The first two movies starring Blade as Blade were great, the third one wasn't. There was also a shitty tv show with some actor pretending to be Blade that was lame. And in the comics he's kind of lame and doesn't really act like Blade.

He gave me an important piece of wisdom that I'll never forget-Some muthafucka's always trynna ice skate uphill.

Shut up, cracker.
>>
>>79658341

I read somewhere that the director heard Snipes use that line in a conversation and decided it needed to be in the film
Wesley Snipes is a god
>>
>>79658411
WHY WOULDN'T HE OPEN HIS EYES!?
>>
What are some blade comic recommendations?
>>
>>79658628
The ones with Blade in them. There's only thirty so it won't take you that long to read them all.
>>
I'm kind of torn on Blade. On the one hand, I think it's cool that Marvel has these characters who are dedicated to putting down supernatural threats and generally don't stray outside of that wheelhouse or interact much with the more traditional heroes - similarly, I enjoy it when characters who have history in that area go back to it, like when Union Jack ends up having to take on some vampires or Moon Knight has to put down a werewolf. On the flipside, when characters like Blade DO interact with the mainstream guys, it feels pretty lame and forced. Especially in Blade's case, since he was retrofitted to match his movie portrayal, which was as far removed from mainstream Marvel as it's possible to be
>>
>>79658193
I don't understand why he isn't a bigger charcter nowadays.

His movies where relatively successful and he's a long standing Black hero.

Is it because Vampires are limited?
>>
>>79659058

I'd say it's the limited part, yeah. Blade kills vampires. That's what he does. He doesn't take on supervillains, he doesn't fight crime, he has one thing and it's stabbing bloodsuckers. Which is cool and all, but it's not the kind of thing that can carry a long-running series
>>
>>79659142
Hey, Buffy's on the line and she'd like to talk to you.
>>
>>79658193
I feel like they're pretty good movies. Even the 3rd one is enjoyable in its terribleness.
>>
>>79659058
Because Blade was an edgy dark hero loved by people who grew up in the 90s who liked typical badass stuff

This current generation wants fun lighthearted bullshit because the "geek culture" has been infiltrated by ironic hipsters, girls, and homos who don't like anything that's too "mean spirited"
>>
>>79658448
HE JUST DIDN'T
>>
>>79659207

Buffy the show also deals with some magic and various monsters and has a large cast that can each have their own plotlines to keep things going
Blade is a guy who generally works by himself and sometimes with one or two people like Hannibal King who devotes himself 100% to killing vampires and generally doesn't have much of a personality outside of "Badass Man"

>Blade
>Edgy

>>79659375
So why doesn't Marvel try to re-invent him? Blade only has three fans, and it's not like Marvel is above pissing old fans off.
>>
>>79659443
>So why doesn't Marvel try to re-invent him?

Easy, Blade is not a super hero per say, in the 90s it was cool to like comic characters who weren't part of the bright spandex crowd and did something different, these days the bright spandex crowd IS the gimmick....people don't feel like they're in on the trend if they don't like SUPER HERO heroes, what would be the point of liking comics then if it didn't get you nerd points?

People would like Blade if they made him a teenager, gave him a colorful suit, and made him an Avenger

>>79659415
Yeah, Blade is edgy. You do realize that word existed before this place turned it into a meme, right? And that in pretty much every context outside of 4chan, "edgy" is actually a compliment?
>>
>>79659550

Edgy, anon
Blade

The live action series basically flopped because:

"It's not muh Wesley Snipes! Waaaaa!"

People are this stupid. There is no hope for humanity.
>>
>>79659981
Live action shows back then never worked, did they?
>>
>>79660223
The Blade series is pretty much the reason for embargos. It was damn good and very well-produced and true to the comics and the movies. The only thing it didn't have was Wesley Snipes, and that is the main reason people gave back then for refusing to even watch it.
>>
>>79660270
I MUST SNIPE IT OFF

So, any word of the Seeley series?

What's wrong? I thought you liked diversity?
>>
>>79664075
I don't see what your point is supposed to be...
>>
>>79664101
I don't know, I would read a story about Wesley Snipes believing he is a vampire killing high school cheerleader.
>>
>>79662537
stealth canceled. He made an announcement regarding it on twitter.
>>
>>79658193
Is he still black? Marvel's been doing some race-bending, you know. Wouldn't surprise me if they made Jubilee the new Blade, or at least his sidekick, Stiletto.
>>
>>79663904
Creating a new character and giving them the name of an old character is not the same as revitalizing an old character

This is why Marvel is shit
>>
>>79664169
Wesley The Vampire Slayer. Transgender black cheerleader only wants to gain the top spot on the cheer squad...when his destiny crashes the party, and he must embrace a power he never knew he had: the power of a Slayer. I'd pay money to see Key and Peele do a trailer for this shit.
>>
Hold up...why has Marvel never done a series about teenage Blade? We don't really know shit about him but his origin. Everything between his birth and current days has just been skimmed in a rather half-assed manner.
>>
Whatever happened to that Blade series featuring his daughter?
>>
>>79664161
His point is that Valiant is for patrician capefans.
>>
>>79664860
Stealth cancelled pre-release.

Yes. He was basically Luke Cage but shittier and even more overlooked. You can imagine the chuckle fit I had when I unlocked this costume in MUA.

What a fucking honkey.

The reason why shows like Supergirl refuse to show Superman or why the Flash may get axed once the movie comes out.

Honestly he'd be better in the DCU. They know how to handle magic and supernatural shit in DC alot better.
>>
disney sucks too much to do anything cool with Blade
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIGtgooCe9U
>>
>>79674308

I think he'd be a lot better if they just did a Punisher MAX on him and put him into his own universe
>>
>>79674308

The DCU has Constantine, Swamp Thing, Frankenstein, and various other characters for that.

Marvel basically has Blade and Doctor Strange. Let them at least keep half of their supernatural roster bro.

>>79674623

This is basically true.

Though I could see a good Blade Netflix show.
>>
>>79677060

Punisher Max isn't actually in his own universe. It just largely ignores the main universe. Nick Fury straight up is in the story where he sends Castle to Russia so Fury can reclaim S.H.I.E.L.D
>>
>>79677351

That's because Fury MAX is a thing and so they put them in a shared universe. If you read Fury MAX, it's pretty clear it's not the same SHIELD as 616
>>
>>79677351
Punisher MAX is it's own universe...

The point of it being no people with super powers exist, this means Fury, Kingpin, Bullseye, etc can exist with no problem
>>
>>79658193

Needs a reboot movie.
>>
>>79677576

But still with Wesley Snipes, right?
>>
>>79677576
No, just a new movie. That ignores Blade Trinity.

If his weapon of choice was a flail, instead of a Katana, would his name still be blade?
>>
>>79658246

Getting real edgy in here
>>
>>79659058

Snipes hated doing it, the introduction of the Blood Pack didn't stick, then Snipes went to jail.

It basically killed itself. Had Snipes taken it seriously and paid his taxes he could have been an Avenger.
>>
>>79662537
>>79664171

I didn't see his tweet but I assumed he went DC exclusive and Marvel got screwed out of a writer.
>>
>>79677804

I thought Snipes loved playing Blade. He wanted to play Black Panther too.
>>
>>79678031

Yeah. I'm pretty sure Snipes really enjoyed playing Blade. I'm not sure where >>79677804 is getting their info from.

Also, there was a recent interview where Snipes was saying he's been in talks with Marvel about maybe something to do with Blade.
>>
>>79677601
>>79677602
I'd be cool with a movie based on the canned comic about his daughter, with older Snipes playing her cool dad
>>
>>79677752
No, he'd be Morningstar
>>
>>79678272

Nice.
>>
>>79678031
>>79678129
He hated doing the third movie. It was awful and he knew that while making it.
>>
>>79664860
>>79664171
>>79677988
Seeley's progress so far on ANAD Blade is two issues worth of scripts. Artist Logan Faerber is working on an untitled indie comic with writer Fabian Rangel Jr. Alonso said twice in his CBR column that there are no updates yet on that Blade comic.
>>
>>79658981
It's a perfectly natural reaction; Marvel can't resist putting hit characters in their crossovers, no matter how poorly they fit.

I mean look at what they did to Guardians of the Galaxy, and they can't blame the movie either, Gunn wants nothing to do with Earth.
>>
>>79660270
What? No it's not.

WB has that stupid policy because the movie division doesn't want the TV division to do better than them. That's all that ever was.

People can handle six different Batmen, they can handle a TV series.
>>
>>79659301
I'd be much more inclined to believe that if most successful modern TV shows didn't feature prominently murderous edgy "badass" characters that are beloved by the people who you say hate those things.
Have you seen how people took Breaking Bad? It was Scarface all over again, except this time nobody went "think of the children" because all the soccer moms were applauding in unison.

Yes, I'm a bit upset.

I remember late at night on Jetix, Spiderman came on and it was the Blade/Vampire arc.
I always thought this was the weirdest shit because I was used to Blade 1/2, and not weird energy sword Blade.

That Spiderman series is what got me into capeshit, I owe Jetix everything.
>>
>>79679445

Wasn't his last big appearance as the new Ronin, of all things? Why was that a thing?
>>
>>79679643

Why is Blade white and cosplaying as Ghost Rider

Also yeah the Spider-Man cartoon changed a lot of shit to make it kid-friendly. The Punisher only used stun guns or something, and Morbius sucked people's "life energy" out through his hands instead of biting them
>>
>>79663829
canceled before it began
>>
>>79679658
Nah, when he takes off his helmet he's a little bit more brown.

But seriously, I thought the '90s were more lax with this kind of stuff.

>>79659550
You're jaded as fuck, anon.
Fun fact: normies think Batman is an edgy badass, not the no-kill boyscout in spandex he actually is.

In some cases they were, but not all. Remember SWAT Kats? That was taken off the air for being "too violent"

He had a MAX series, and it was initially vague as to whether it was set in the main one, though it eventually was confirmed as being 616.

The little twitching leech mouths he had on his hands were actually kind of fucked up.
>>
>>79683388

Yeah I read that, I don't remember it being anything special but I think it's the right direction for the character. Just cut off from 616, maybe introduce some alternate version of a supernatural hero that fits better than their mainline version. Remember the Doctor Strange that was in Thor: Vikings? That kind of thing
>>
>>79683447
Yeah. Honestly creepier than just biting them, though his design still has fangs.

so how about that blade anime? i thought it was alright
