Wesley Snipes tells fans to ‘chillaaxx’ about MCU’s Blade announcement

Blade Wesley Snipes

Blade is a Marvel film that helped push the wave of superhero movies like X-Men and Spider-Man, and now the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. He’s a popular character who got the trilogy treatment, and during the Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con, fans cheered when it was revealed that Mahershala Ali (Netflix’s Luke Cage) was cast as the Daywalker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What does Wesley Snipes, the actor who played the vampire slayer in the original films, have to say about the news? He wants everyone to “chillaaxx.”

“To all the DAYWALKERS losing their minds right now, chillaaxx,” Snipes revealed in a statement. “Although the news comes as a surprise, it’s ALL good. Such is the ‘business’ of ‘entertainment!’ Much peace to the MCU crew – always a fan. Honor and respect to the grandmaster Stan. Congratulations and Salaam to Mahershala Ali, a beautiful and talented artist whose expressions I look forward to experiencing for many years to come. Inshallah, we will someday work together. Most importantly to my loyal fans, the incredible outpouring of love is overwhelming. I am grateful for the never-ending support. So, ‘nah fret nah worry, it’s not de end of de story.’ Welcome to the Daywalker Klique.”

There’s a lot of mystery surrounding the new Blade film along with other projects like Fantastic Four and mutants under the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What we do know is that we’ll have to wait a bit since they will be in the MCU’s Phase 5.

Marvel Studios has a lot of movie projects in the works including Black Widow on May 1, 2020; The Eternals on November 6, 2020; Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on February 12, 2021; Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on May 7, 2021; and Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021. Series that will be headed to Disney+ include The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in Fall 2020, WandaVision in Spring 2021, Loki in Spring 2021, What If…? in Summer 2021, and Hawkeye in Fall 2021.
