Trivia: In the scene where Blade's base is blown up, there is a shot of Blade being thrown into the air. This is not CGI or even wirework. When the director asked the pyrotechnicians to rig the warehouse, they decided to make the explosion bigger - without telling anybody. The resulting explosion threw the stunt double three metres into the air and nine metres backwards.
Trivia: The whole vampire final solution plot line, with the humans in the big vacuum bags being harvested for their blood is actually an unused sub plot from Blade 1. In Blade 1, the vampire Frost was originally to merge with a Blood Tide and wipe out all humans on the planet. He had planned on the storage idea to maintain a food source for the vampire race once this was completed. This plotline was shown to test audiences who hated the ending (with Frost merging into a giant tornado of blood once the ceremony was completed). According to the directors commentary on the deleted scene on the DVD, the creators had to come up with a new ending and they chose the big sword match. They then dropped the humans as blood cows thing as it was no longer needed for the story. It was then resurrected, almost picture perfectly (based on the story boards for Blade 1 - again on the DVD) for this movie.
Trivia: The Nightstalkers were introduced in the film with the hope that they would be able to be featured in their own spin-off movie. Because they are more obscure characters, the producers and director felt it better to introduce them in a pre-established franchise, and they were written into this film. Unfortunately, their spin-of feature never came to be.
Trivia: Reportedly, after violent confrontations on and off-set instigated by star Wesley Snipes, communications between he and director David Goyer completely broke down. For the remainder of the shoot, they communicated via post-it notes, which they had crew members pass back and forth between them. Snipes would always sign his "From Blade."
Trivia: Series star Wesley Snipes was reportedly unhappy with the script, and thus caused great difficulty on set. In addition to refusing to leave his trailer, mistreating the cast and crew and becoming violent on at least one occasion, he also refused to film certain scenes out of protest. Director David Goyer and the editing team were forced to use creative editing to add Snipes into scenes he refused to shoot. (Ex. In certain scenes, Snipe's body-double was filmed from behind to give the illusion that Blade was on-screen. In certain scenes, footage of Snipes from alternate takes of other scenes would be spliced-in to add him, etc.) Other actors were also reportedly given much of Snipes' dialogue because he refused to film so many sequences.
