It's difficult to think about the Marvel superhero Blade without the legendary Wesley Snipes, who immortalised the "Daywalker". The actor starred in the successful Blade trilogy (1998-2004). Hence, it came as a surprise to many when Kevin Feige revealed at the Marvel Studios Hall H panel during San Diego Comic-Con 2019, that Blade was being rebooted. And who was cast as the new Blade? Two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. While many rejoiced, there were some who were pissed about Wesley being replaced.

In a statement to ComicBook and talking to his fellow Daywalkers, Wesley told his fans to "chillaxx" about the new casting. While the Blade reboot came as a surprise to him, the actor says it's all good and just the "business of entertainment". He sent out peace to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) crew, who he is a fan of. "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," Snipes shared.
