It was recently announced that Mahershala Ali was named as the lead role in the upcoming Blade movie, and Wesley Snipes fans were shocked that he wasn’t chosen to reprise his role.

Snipes reacted to the news, saying: “To all the DAYWALKERS losing their minds right now, chillaaxx. Although the news comes as a surprise, it’s ALL good. Such is the ‘business’ of ‘entertainment!’ Much peace to the MCU crew – always a fan.” 

Wesley went on to praise Ali and reveal that he is interested in paying tribute to Stan Lee and working with Mahershala:

“Honor and respect to the grandmaster Stan. Congratulations and Salaam to Mahershala Ali, a beautiful and talented artist whose expressions I look forward to experiencing for many years to come. Inshallah, we will someday work together. Most importantly to my loyal fans, the incredible outpouring of love is overwhelming. I am grateful for the never-ending support. So, ‘nah fret nah worry, it’s not de end of de story.’ Welcome to the Daywalker Klique.”
