* CreatorCameo: During the chase with officer Krieger, director Stephen Norrinton is the vampire on the side of the road biting the girl's neck. In the alternate ending on the DVD, the blue figure in the black coat on the roof is Norrington again, as an unnamed vampire.
* DeletedRole: Creator/StanLee originally had a cameo that was ultimately cut from the film. He played one of the cops that come in to the blood club during the aftermath and discover Quinn's body on fire.



* RaceLift: Blade was English in the comics.
* RevisedEnding: In the ending as it was originally planned, Frost turned into La Magra and became a large swirling mass of blood instead of keeping his form. This was scrapped because they couldn't get the special effects to look right. It can be seen as a special feature on the DVD.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:

to:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:WhatCouldHaveBeen: Wesley Snipes was chosen for Blade over Creator/DenzelWashinton and Creator/LaurenceFishburne.
** Music/LLCoolJ was originally considered for Blade.
** When the film was first being developed, Creator/DavidFincher was supposed to direct. He later dropped out to pursue other projects.


Added DiffLines:

** Creator/PatrickMcGoohan was considered for Whistler.
** When Karen Jensen wakes up at Blade's hideout after her attack and rescue by Blade, the script had her discover a jar with a vampire baby in it. The baby would be alive and used by Blade and Whistler as a guinea pig for testing out weapons to fight vampires. The studio however found the concept to be disturbing and refused to allow it.
** The scene where Karen and Deacon are talking about the cure for vampirism initially ran a bit longer and answered the question of how the vampires would feed if everybody was turned into a vampire. They would keep some humans alive in giant blood bags to harvest them. The bags can still be seen in a doorway during the scene, and later played an integral part of the plot in ''Film/BladeTrinity''.
** Music/TheProdigy were approached to do the score and soundtrack for the film, but they turned down the offer due to other work commitments
** Creator/JetLi was offered the part of Deacon Frost but opted to do ''Film/LethalWeapon4 instead.

* TheOtherDarrin: Kirk Jones replaced Wesley Snipes in the title role for the television series.



* TroubledProduction: ''Blade: Trinity'' was plagued with problems. Firstly, they filmed in Vancouver during a time when it was uncharacteristically rainy. Also most of Blade's scenes were filmed with Wesley Snipes' stand-in, because Snipes would stay in his trailer smoking weed all day. After he tried to choke the director, David Goyer, and the director hired local bikers to act as his personal security, Wesley Snipes avoided the set even more, and would only communicate with the crew via Post-It notes signed "From Blade." This led to Blade being OutOfFocus and the Nightstalkers becoming the focus of the film.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** And [[Series/RedDwarf The Cat]] was one of the vampires teaming with Blade in ''Blade II''
** And yet defied. Chupa from Blade II? Part of the Blood Pack? Yeah, he was apparently in Blade I. The guy whose hand gets exploded by Blade's booby-trapped sword. Guy named "Crease". Matt Shulze, and apparently he put on some weight between the two flicks. He was also the beta Dragon in the first Transporter flick.
** Perhaps we should be calling Dracula [[PrisonBreak Linc-ula]]?
** It is incredibly unnerving to see Creator/RonPerlman as a vampire in Blade II, especially after seeing him as [[Series/SonsOfAnarchy Clay Morrow]] and Hellboy.
** First vampires, then [[Franchise/ResidentEvil zombies]]? Thomas Kretschmann can't catch a break!
** The drug dealer in Blade II is played by Ladislav Beran, who also played a [[Film/{{Hellboy}} clockwork assassin]].
** Creator/DonalLogue went from a thuggish vampire to a well-meaning, slightly awkward detective in Life.
** Scud is played by Creator/NormanReedus.
** Creator/TonyCurran (Blade II) would later play another vampire in ''Film/UnderworldEvolution''.
** Luke Goss (the main Reaper in Blade II) has also played an [[Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy elf prince]] and [[Film/{{Tekken}} Steve Fox]].
** Speaking of Hellboy, Ron Pearlman is part of the Bloodpack.
** Wrestling/TripleH is Danica's right-hand man in the third film.
** Holy shit. [[Film/IpMan Donnie Yen]] is a vampire swordsman in the sequel.
** Udo Kier (Dragonetti)
