Blade trends as security guard photo gets compared to Marvel hero

Marvel's ‘Blade’ is trending on Twitter after a new security guard photo has users pointing out the resemblance to the vampire-killing Marvel hero. The success of 1998's ‘Blade’ seemingly paved the way for the current success of Marvel movies. Headlined by Wesley Snipes in the titular role, the film's success led to two sequels, ‘Blade II’ in 2002 and ‘Blade: Trinity’ in 2004.

The ‘Blade’ franchise hasn't seen a new film release since ‘Trinity,’ but Marvel is looking to reboot the franchise with a new film, which is currently expected to release in either 2022 or 2023. The new ‘Blade’ will see ‘Green Book’ star Mahershala Ali take on the titular role this time around, and Snipes himself has expressed confidence that Ali is the perfect man for the job. While details on the film remain nearly non-existent at this point, fans have already been given a taste of what Ali will bring to the table after his brief voice-only cameo during the post-credits scene of ‘Eternals.’

While ‘Eternals’ re-invigorated the excitement surrounding Blade, the film is trending once more on Twitter after a picture of a security guard has many users pointing out his resemblance to the famed vampire killer. With a long black leather trench coat and enough weaponry to take down an army of bloodthirsty vampires (including what appears to be an actual sheathed katana sword), this security guard has spawned dozens of funny comments on Twitter as people compare him to Snipes' character. 

It's not entirely clear from the picture, but it would appear that the security guard is working in some crowd-heavy club or bar setting.     -Collider
