* Meta: ''Blade'' was the first bona fide success ''ever'' for a theatrically released movie based on a Creator/MarvelComics property, grossing three times its budget and garnering a cult following over the years. Previous attempts were best summed up as outright {{Box Office Bomb}}s like ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' or stinkers that didn't make it to theatrical release like ''Film/{{Captain America|1990}}'' or ''Film/TheFantasticFour''.
** Not only that. It sorta kicked off the Comic Book Movie Renaissance the very year after the {{genre|killer}}-killing ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' disaster, followed with success by ''Film/XMen1'' and ''Film/SpiderMan'' -- the rest is history.
