*** Of course, the general public probably wasn't really aware that Blade ''was'' a comic book character originally, and thought it was just a cool "Vampire Killer" idea (especially since ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' had premiered a year before).

* FollowTheLeader: In a sense, the movie led to the boom of Creator/MarvelComic-based movies. Though later overshadowed by the 2000's more successful ''Film/XMen'' and ''Film/SpiderMan'', ''Blade'' was the first Marvel movie to be a bona fide financial and critical success (''Film/MenInBlack'' came out first but technically, it was more a property ''bought'' by Marvel than ''made'' by Marvel). And granted, some productions such as the aforementioned ''Spider-Man'' [[DevelopmentHell had long been gestating]], but the movie's success proved that Marvel characters could headline their own movies. Additionally, Blade himself was not as well-known prior to the movie's release, but still made for a successful property. In addition to their A-list stars, Marvel and DC have subsequently looked at other lesser-known characters for possible movies.
