22. Marvel Movies – Blade (1998)


Captain America: Civil War is coming soon, as is X-men Apocalypse, so this list was due.

I am not 100% sure the world was ready for Blade.  I also believe most people didn’t know Blade is from Marvel Comics.  I know some people took it as just a cool vampire movie.  Honestly that is great, it is taken as a movie first and a Marvel Property second.

Blade is great, from the action packed opening scene to the boss fight in the end.  Wesley Snipes perfectly played Blade, like he was born for the role.  I don’t know if Blade helped usher in the X-men movies or if it were just time.  Blade put an end to the nearly 20 year reign of DC movies, 4 Supeman and 4 Batman films in that time.  The birth of the Marvel movie came with the Daywalker.
