Blade Appearing In Deadpool & Wolverine Would Continue Ryan Reynolds" Comic Book Movie Trend

  • Reynolds returns to in Deadpool & Wolverine as Wade Wilson again, opening up the potential for more meta references to other movies.
  • Fan analysis of Deadpool & Wolverine's trailers have led to theories about a Blade cameo.
  • Deadpool's self-deprecation about Ryan Reynolds' past comic roles could extend to his role in Blade, which could explain the hero's prospective appearance in the third movie.
If speculation over Blade's Marvel movie return in Deadpool & Wolverine proved true, it would continue a Ryan Reynolds comic book movie trend that began in 2016. Ryan Reynolds has now portrayed two versions of Wade Wilson in his comic book movie career, starting with the universally panned portrayal in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Thankfully, 2016's Deadpool rectified this error by delivering the quintessential live-action take on the R-rated Marvel Comics character, which will soon culminate in the release of Deadpool & Wolverine.
As enthusiasm for the movie's release reaches a fever pitch, Deadpool fans have been poring over trailer footage to discern as many Deadpool & Wolverine details as possible ahead of the upcoming MCU movie debut. As rumors surrounding certain Deadpool & Wolverine cameos are vindicated by trailers and images, there is one character that fans are struggling to pin down: namely, Blade. While one character in a promotional image has been theorized to be Sticky Fingaz' rendition of the character in CW's Blade: The Series, it remains unclear if Blade will feature at all. If he does, though, Reynolds' recurring Deadpool gag can continue.

Ryan Reynolds Insulted His Comic Book Movie Mistakes Close Ryan Reynolds seized the opportunity across the last two Deadpool movies to dunk on his previous comic book movie mistakes (and those of other actors) with relish. The fact that he has done so by leaning into comic-accurate fourth-wall breaks that eluded his first Deadpool appearance makes such self-depreciation all the more satisfying. This culminated in Deadpool 2 with Deadpool using Cable's time-travel device to travel back and kill Reynolds before accepting his Green Lantern role and the version of "Deadpool" that appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In doing so, Reynolds addressed and adjusted the more divisive areas of his comic book movie past.
However, this wasn't the first time in Deadpool's movie timeline that Reynolds' prior roles had been lambasted. Deadpool included similar moments, with the antihero advising Ajax to refrain from sewing his mouth shut and imploring his super suit be neither green nor animated. While Reynolds' references to his previous roles have gone down a storm thus far, doing so for a third time in Deadpool & Wolverine is at risk of making the joke feel stale. Instead, Blade may provide a chance for Reynolds to capitalize on another bit.
Blade Appearing Would Continue Reynolds' Deadpool 2 Joke Close Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine aren't the only lambasted comic book movies starring Reynolds. Blade: Trinity was the maligned third installment of the otherwise well-received Blade trilogy starring Wesley Snipes. Reynolds debuted as Hannibal King in the movie, which experienced a reportedly difficult production owing to Snipes' alleged behavior on-set. It was also met with harsh criticism as it fumbled the magic of the first two movies.
The distribution rights for Blade were initially owned by New Line Cinema before they were reacquired by Marvel in 2012.
If Blade appears in Deadpool & Wolverine, whether as Snipes or in another guise, the door will be wide open for Reynolds to continue his self-deprecating trend using Blade as the set-up. A concern about referencing Blade: Trinity may surround the fact that it was released in 2004, 7 years before Green Lantern, and therefore doesn't hold as much relevance. Blade's physical presence in Deadpool & Wolverine would change that by making things less referential and more literal in terms of nodding to the past release, all while keeping Reynolds' recurring gag going.
Deadpool & Wolverine R A sequel to the highly successful Deadpool and Deadpool 2 starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth. The third film will be the first film in the franchise to be developed under the Marvel Studios banner following Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox. Ryan Reynolds is returning to play the character, alongside Hugh Jackman, reprising his Wolverine role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time.
