|Marrese Crump looking like the Daywalker himself in his cool shades|
Most of us are familiar with the famous Marvel comics’ vampire hunter and anti-hero, Blade. Since the Wesley Snipes films, he has been a pop icon and has also appeared in many memes too, especially those involving Twilight.
Now, as we all know that Marvel is revamping many of its properties with its extended MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), which includes the Netflix’s series, as a fan of Marvel and their stuff, I would LOVE for them to reboot Blade and AT LEAST create a Netflix series of it.
Yes, I know that after Blade Trinity we had a Blade TV series starring the rapper, Sticky Fingaz as the Daywalker himself, and it was not received well AT ALL by fans, critics and the general audience.
So now, I propose that Marrese Crump, take up the mantle of our favourite slayer.
Why Maresse Crump? Not only cos I am a big fan of his but I think he has the looks, the skills and the ability to be as good as Wesley Snipes himself and DEFINITELY better than Sticky Fingaz.
Looks – There are portrayals of Blade with a bald head and a cool pair of sunglasses, just like in the TV series starring Sticky Fingaz, as well as in the anime that was quite short lived too. So yeah, definitely, just look at at the man, he will be amazing as the Daywalker.
Skills – I do not need to tell anyone that knows who this guy is, but Marrese Crump is skilled in MANY martial arts forms, with all kinds of weapons and he’s also a spectacular acrobat too. This man was trained by the legendary Panna Ritikarai, the man who taught Tony Jaa. Maresse himself has trained with Tony Jaa and has had many fight scenes with him too, and you can see in those scenes how he is able to match Tony Jaa toe-to-toe in both speed and skill. Trained in Tae Kwon Do (black belt), Capoeira (like Wesley Snipes himself) and Muay Thai (all the arts that Tony Jaa has trained in), as well as various other weapons based arts too, there is no questions about Marrese’s skills.
|I can just imagine it here, Marrese Crump as Blade and Jon Bernthal as The Punisher in a Netflix series BADASS|
Acting – I know that most martial artists aren’t really good actors but there are MANY that are, and Maresse is one of them. He is definitely on par in skills and acting ability like Michael Jai White, Wesley Snipes, Scott Adkins, Jeff Wincott, etc. In fact, as an actor he is DEFINITELY better than Sticky Fingaz for sure, just see him in the Bollywood film, Sultan, where he plays the MMA champ that fights Salman Khan, Marrese is the only good actor in that IMO. He’ll definitely do Blade justice like Wesley Snipes did!
