Red Dead Redemption 2 and its multiplayer counterpart, Red Dead Online, host fan creations all the time. There are many that are quite impressive, like the recreations of GTA 5it’s Trevor, Assassin’s Creed Rogue‘s Shay Patrick Cormac, and many more. The latest fan recreation combines the beloved western with a beloved Marvel movie.
From 1998 to 2004, the Blade The franchise was very successful, with Wesley Snipes taking on the lead and titular role. In it, Blade was a Dhampir, or half-vampire, who, alongside his mentor and a hematologist, hunts and fights vampires. This franchise, many will say, set up Marvel’s future cinematic success and laid a solid foundation for future comic book adaptations, as this film series has grown a strong cult following, as well as Wesley Snipes as Blade.
As such, it is great news that Blade returns for the MCU (albeit with Mahershala Ali in the lead role instead of Snipes), but Snipes’ take on the character is still held in high regard, even in the Red Dead Online community. As seen below, a Redditor known as HeySoloSoyYo designed their Dead red character to look like Wesley Snipes’ Blade and that’s almost perfect.
Sure, he’s missing a few things like Blade’s tattoos, but most of his character is nailed from his glasses to his vest. According to HeySoloSoyYo, this was done without any Red Dead Online mods (or anything like that) and was instead created by him. He has been very well received in the community so far, racking up over 7,500 upvotes in less than 24 hours.
A few Redditors also had a lot of fun with the idea of Blade in the Red Dead Redemption world. Many were quick to point out that Blade could theoretically adapt, given that the Saint Denis vampire also exists. Others, meanwhile, just had fun quoting classic movies, and many others commented on the quality of the design as well.
Either way, for both Blade and Red Dead Redemption, the future looks bright. Blade may have a new lead actor with his introduction to the MCU, but he will undoubtedly be compared to the character of Wesley Snipes. Rebooting somehow can work well if it can live up to those expectations. Red Dead Redemption 2, on the other hand, just turned three, and while many games could drop during that time, RDR2 is clearly still going strong.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
