Classic Marvel Figurine Collection Magazine # 6 Blade the Vampire Hunter Eaglemoss

Blade appears in a trilogy of live-action films from New Line Cinema, portrayed by Wesley Snipes. The first, Blade, was released in 1998, and presented the character as stoic while revising his powers and weaknesses. Rather than a normal human with immunity to vampirism, the film version is a dhampir with vampiric powers and a bloodthirst, the latter of which is controlled through a special serum. The financially successful film received two sequels, Blade II (2002) and Blade: Trinity (2004).

By August 2012, the film rights to Blade had reverted to Marvel Studios, and a script for a new film was ready by May 2013. By July 2015, Snipes and Marvel had discussed the actor reprising his role. A crossover with the Underworld film series had also been discussed, but was rejected because Marvel Studios wanted to introduce Blade into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Mahershala Ali had been cast as Blade in July 2019. In 2021, Stacy Amma Osei-Kuffour was hired to write the script in February, while Bassam Tariq was confirmed to direct in September. The film will begin principal photography in October 2022 at Tyler Perry Studios, Atlanta. Blade is scheduled to be released on November 3, 2023 as part of Phase Five of the MCU.

Ali has an uncredited vocal cameo appearance as Blade in a post-credits scene for Eternals. Just as Dane Whitman is about to pick up the Ebony Blade, an unseen Blade asks him whether he is actually ready for it.
