It’s damn near impossible to kill Blade.
The Marvel Studios planned reboot of the 1998 Wesley Snipes-led Blade may be on life-support right now–having lost its director this week–but there’s always the original trilogy to fall back on. And the first three Blade films are hitting Hulu starting tomorrow, Oct. 1, according to a report on comicbook.com.
The original Blade–directed by Stephen Norrington from a screenplay by David S. Goyer (and based on the Marvel Comics vampire hunter)–stars Snipes, Stephen Dorff and Kris Kristofferson.
In the film, Blade–a human-vampire hybrid–battles vampire hordes, especially targeting the vicious Deacon Frost. Blade received mixed reviews from critics, but established a strong cult following–earning $131 million worldwide.
The original was followed by Blade II (2002)–directed by Guillermo del Toro and again written by Goyer–and Blade: Trinity (2004)–written and directed by Goyer.
The Marvel Comics Blade character–created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist Gene Colan–debuted in The Tomb of Dracula No. 10 way back in 1973.
