The movie series "Blade" will be rebooted in the Marvel Universe starring Mahershala Ali. This film will be very different from the main works of the series, but it cannot completely ignore them.
The first film of the Blade trilogy was first shown in 1998 and was the first work based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was a great success in the cinema. Later, two sequels called "Blade 2" and "Blade: Trinity" were released, and the low quality of the third film led to the end of this series. The world of cinema and television is back. This one-season series is the last image that the audience has seen of this character. Finally, Marvel Studios announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 that it plans to reboot Blade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Mahershala Ali plays the main role in this work and her voice can even be heard in the scene after the end credits of the movie "Javadangan". Blade wants Dean Whitman's sword for himself
The film Blade, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will be responsible for reintroducing this character to modern audiences. However, even with this, the influence that the Blade movies (especially the original Blade) had on superhero movies cannot be ignored in any new work on the character. By making such an undeniable impact, Blade made it possible for Marvel's new reboot to still be influenced by Snipes' films.
When Blade first came out in 1998, the landscape of superhero movies was completely different than it is today. Comic book adventures were less noticed in the cinema and did not attract much positive opinion from the audience at that time. Marvel in particular had virtually no live-action success except for The Incredible Hulk TV series. Blade overcame the interference of the production studios and became a big hit, and it didn't take long for everything to change from there. With the success of "Spider-Man" in 2002, the doors opened and the superhero movie boom began. Admittedly, comic book movies have had many ups and downs during this time, such as the Blade franchise itself and the flops "Blade 2" and "Blade: Trinity". 2008 is usually referred to as the turning point in which comic book movies completely took over the cinemas with the works of Marvel and DC as well as "The Dark Knight". However, Blade earned its own success, and more importantly, it was successful at a particular time and was instrumental in propelling superhero movies to where they are. "Blade: Trinity" took the series away, but the original Blade planted the idea of much bigger events in the minds of the creators.
The original Blade and the Blade of the Marvel
Cinematic Universe are presented in a very different
Blade was nothing more than a Marvel character before the release of the original. Blade had appeared in several episodes of the animated series "Spider-Man", but was still far from a well-known character to the public. The studio's marketing for Blade made it clear that superhero movies were not firmly established at the time. Blade received very little attention from a comic book perspective, to the point where many audiences would easily buy a ticket and sit down to watch the movie without knowing that Blade, the vampire hunter, is a Marvel character. Blade was marketed as the Hollywood equivalent of a Hong Kong action film starring Wesley Snipes fighting vampires. It is clear that the success of Blade shows that this strategy paid off, but this will not be true for the relaunch of Blade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With 30 movies out (along with multiple series), Marvel's Blade has to do whatever it takes to make a movie seem non-comic. The Blade reboot also takes place in a world full of superheroes, which is a big contrast to the Snipes films. Known for having friends like Whistler (played by Kris Kristofferson in the Snipes movies), Blade may be going solo this time around. Even Blade's connection to Dean Whitman (Kit Harington) hinted at at the end of "Immortals" isn't solid, and it's unclear if Blade is an Avengers-level team player or an occasional ally for other heroes. Despite the many differences it will have in its marketing, Marvel's Blade Movie still can't quite make it destroy the impact of Snipes' films.

Why will the blade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continue to be influenced by the original movie?
Given that Blade was a marginal character in Marvel at the time of the first movie, Blade Movie is a rare example of a comic book adaptation that It had more influence than its source. By introducing him as a human-vampire hybrid, that film caused his comic book story to be updated to match the film. Blade was introduced to the general public and his character changed from a British character to an American one, and Marvel's reboot will no doubt keep the story of him being a vampire with immunity to vampire weaknesses. Blade's influence on the relaunch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe does not end there.
Blade was the prototype of a comic book suitable for the 17+ age group that became a huge success at the box office. "Deadpool" and "Logan" reached this position years later, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe has not yet entered this field. The release of series like "Moon Knight" and the return of Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) to the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows that the studio intends to move in that direction. The first real work suitable for over 17 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be "Deadpool 3". Considering the original trilogy, Blade seems to have the potential of a 17+ movie, and Marvel Studios is certainly considering the pros and cons of this title, and we will have to see if the studio continues its previous trend or makes a change.
Marvel Studios' Blade will certainly try to offer a fresh take on the vampire slayer, but there's no way it'll completely ignore what the original Blade movies did. Usually, a reboot departs significantly from its predecessor to refer to what it planned, but Marvel's Blade, which was supposed to be released for Halloween and was canceled, would be the studio's first attempt at this. In honor of the original Blade movies and their influence on All superhero movies, Marvel's Blade will essentially be an anomaly in the field.
