Fans of Wesley Snipe’s portrayal of the superhero Blade will surely understand the importance of the sword, the ebony blade, as the superhero’s legendary weapon. While it’s true that the character could be that of Mahershala Ali, the young actor Marvel hired to portray the next hero, the MCU’s history has proven more than once that anything is possible. Also, it makes sense that the older variants depict members of the Illuminati.

There is a lot of speculation in this theory, including the fact that Blade was never a member of the Illuminati in the comics. However, the MCU is known to base its material loosely on the comics, and the studio isn’t necessarily keeping everything canon. There was actually one member of the Illuminati that fans are sure emerged in him Doctor Strange Follower. In the same image, one of the silhouetted characters is speaking to Doctor Strange, and it’s a dead ringer for the voice of Patrick Stewart – who portrayed Charles Xavier, better known as Professor X in the Fox’s X-Men Franchise. With fans already sure an iconic actor will be making an appearance, Wesley Snipes’ return bodes well.

Wesley Snipes portrayed blade for three films spanning nearly a decade. The character was first created by Marv Wolfman for Marvel Comics in 1973. But it wasn’t until Snipes portrayed the vigilante in the 1998 film that the franchise garnered a monumental following. According to lore, Blade’s mother was bitten by a vampire during labor. This makes Blade a kind of vampire-human hybrid with all the strengths of vampires but none of their weaknesses. Since the sunlight doesn’t harm him, the vampires know him as the “Daywalker”. In the first film, Blade grows into a vampire hunter and swears revenge for his mother. The film quickly became a commercial success, spawning two more films. blade won the hearts of cinema-goers before X-Men or the first Spiderman franchise debuted.
