According to Patton Oswalt, the production was so troubled due to studio interference and that Wesley Snipes appeared to have had some sort of mental breakdown. He refused to speak to David S. Goyer and often would not come out of his trailer, he would only respond to the name 'Blade', and if he communicated with anyone, it would be via post-it notes. Ryan Reynolds corroborated this while promoting the film, saying that Snipes would ignore the entire cast, but he once acknowledged Reynolds by saying "Keep your mouth shut. You'll live longer."
When he was asked what it was like working with Wesley Snipes on this film, Ryan Reynolds said sincerely that "I never met Wesley Snipes on this film, not for a second. I only met Blade."
Even though it's the third movie in the Blade series, this was the first movie to have the Marvel Studios logo at the beginning of the movie (Blade is a Marvel comics superhero).
After this film, the live action film rights went back to Marvel Studios.
