Wesley Snipes congratulates new ‘Blade’ actor!
It feels like we’ve been holding our breath, waiting impatiently for a new Blade movie for years (15 years, to be exact). After the announcement that a new reboot is finally on its way, Wesley Snipes is thrilled and excited for Mahershala Ali, who replaces him as the Marvel character.
In a recent statement, Snipes said:
“To all the DAYWALKERS losing their minds right now, chillaaxx. 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,” Snipes says. “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.”
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait THREE more years! Blade is scheduled for a 2022 release!
