As it happens because Blade is such a badass, and because he’s also seen Whistler die before, he gets over the death of his friend pretty fast and makes new friends with a group of vampire hunters. One of these hunters is Whistler’s daughter Abigail (Biel)...WHO WHISTLER NEVER
MENTIONED BEFORE...another is wisecracking popular actor Ryan Reynolds...and the rest aren’t important. Together the three of them form a group called the Nightstalkers and decide to work as a team to take down Drake and his vampires. Along the way they meet weird actress Parker Posey; the “I’m not comfortable” lawyer from Ally McBeal, the second Ray Vecchio from Due South and some guy who boned Samantha in a few episodes of Sex and the City. For Blade this is shaping up to be a pretty exciting day, but realising he has a reputation as a serious ‘mofo’ to keep intact he encourages his team to start fighting vamps at every opportunity.
*Ryan Reynolds was too good for Blade Trinity.Fact.
*Of all the people Blade met he said he was the most star struck by the guy who once got down and dirty with Samantha on Sex and the City as he was a bit of a SATC fan.
He also said he’d quite like to have done it with Carrie, but only if she would have promised not to look at him, talk to him, or in any way acknowledge that she was there.
*Blade got his name because as a child he was a fan of inline skating.
