This is the third and final film in the Blade trilogy, and a few cancelled future projects later, the rights to the character have now transferred back to Marvel. Marvel has said that a new "Blade" is in development starring Mahershala Ali, but back in 2004 Wesley Snipes was still shooting the silver bullets. After stopping the Blood God and Nomak, Blade is now up against his deadliest enemy: Dracula himself.
The sequel that the studio feared wouldn't materialize is here! Instead of the Blood God, the villain that would have been set up by the original ending of "Blade", our hero is fighting the Reapers. This new villain is a strain of vampires that feeds on... vampires. Fighting these new vampires will force Blade to team up with... vampires.
Ah, 1998. It was such a simpler time. A time when vampires could just be good, old-fashioned, garlic-allergic vampires. Those were the days when only two people in the world stood a chance against a vampire. One of those people was a super-powered high school cheerleader in the Whedonverse. The other, of course, was Blade.
