Wesley Snipes Criticizes Blade Recasting?


Earlier this week Wesley Snipes congratulated Mahershala Ali after he was cast as Blade in the role made famous by Wesley back in the 90s [click here if you missed that].

Now Wes is singing a slightly different tune...

In a cryptic message posted on social media Wesley Snipes seems to imply Marvel Cinematic Universe is making a grave mistake.

Hes not dissin'...he wants them to at least put him on as a consultant...and why the fuk wouldnt they? He can contribute a great deal to the project....i know now he probably wishes he had some ownership in the franchise...Hopefully, they bring him aboard....its only right & Blade fans eould eat that shit up...

I don't see why they had to recast this role, did they not want to pay his worth? just like Spider Man: Tobey Maquire will always be Spider Man for me, he was the perfect Spider Man and brought that role to life. Same with Blade, but the recast is not a bad look as it's another heavily melanated brother with a certain look, that can pull off that characters swag. Only time will tell if he brings the same Blade energy to the role. Some roles cannot be recast as it loses the essence of the original actor that played it.

People tend to forget that Wesley Snipe as Blade, saved Marvel. Had it not been for Blade, none of these franchises would exist. Respect that man.

What the fuck does Hollywood owe Wesley Snipes? Nothing abso-fucking-lutely, NOTHING.

Honestly, I don’t understand why he can’t continue being Blade. He’ still looks better than a lot of men half his age. It wouldn’t take long if he needed more muscles. He can still kick ass. Atleast allow him to consult with the new guy as long as he isn’t intimidated by Wesley.

I really like Mahershala a lot, but not as Blade. He's lanky with a skinny head. lol Maybe I am just used to Wesley whose form seems more portioned for a half vamp/ half human? However, the James Bond franchise has like 6 Bonds and so it might work.....Nothing lasts forever. Wesley does deserve more respect in Hollywood because he has been on the scene since the late 1970's early 80's. He was in film before both Sam and Denzel. Only Morgan has him beat in years on film.

I think events like this can make the overall status of the society to improve. It is a nice idea from the professionals to conduct such a giving day to help the people who are left helpless in the society.Jogos 2019

No studio wants Wesley Snipes' dusty almost 60 year old ass as the star of the BLADE reboot. LOL
