As far as I know, the Blade series has never really delved into the concept vampiric cannibalism. However, from what I understand of the Blade universe's version of vampirism, it's disease based rather than supernatural. If we consider the TV series of Blade (its one season, that is) as canon, that would mean Blade's unique traits are differences in how ...

There were no plans before Snipes went to prison. Marvel couldn't have made a Blade film until sometime around 2012 when, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film rights reverted to them from New Line Cinema: More recently, Marvel welcomed Blade back from New Line, which made a trilogy starring Wesley Snipes as well as a TV series. Any plans for a ...

The most usual explanation in most vampire folklore has to do with the purity of the blood. As more generations go by, the original blood of a vampire get mixed with and diluted in human blood and thus younger vampires tend to be less powerful than older vampires who has a more pure, uncontaminated blood.

Blade is a dhampir. That means he is a half-vampire. Blade CAN be turned into a full vampire. This has come up in the comic books many times and was even discussed in the very movie that TV series spun from. Usually in Marvel comics a vampire has to drain you and then feed you some of his own blood to work the change. As for Morbius, yes, Morbius was ...

No as was said in the movie, only in the vicinity of the city. Also since Daystar didn't kill Blade because he is a hybrid, the same thing should be true for Drake as he was THE hybrid: the first known king.

According to the Marvel Handbook, Blade has greatly reduced aging due to his partial vampiric heritage.

The script makes no mention whatsoever of Blade having any kind of mental superpowers. REINHARDT: The vampire mercenary clutches Blade's sword in his hand, but the weapon provides him with little sense of security given that he's just seen a dozen of his men slaughtered. The automatic sprinkler system is on now, spraying water down upon Blade ...

I think that the producers did not base Gordon on Blade, but it is more like a nod to Marvel's character "Blade". Both are African-American vampire hunters (like you stated). And also, Gordon's last name "Walker" hints at Blade whom the vampires call "Daywalker" for his ability to walk in daylight (Blade is half vampire). The producers did not give any ...

Although, Morbius isn't a normal vampire; he's a ...
