David Goyer Talks Blade: Trinity Finale

How will Blade: Trinity end? Will it set up a fourth movie (perhaps directed by Guillermo del Toro)? Writer/director David Goyer gives some hints.
Warning: Spoilers

Blade: Trinity writer/director David Goyer says the film could end one of two different ways but that fans spreading Internet rumors don't necessarily have it right. "There are a lot of rumors about the ending, none of which are completely right," Goyer told Ain't It Cool News. "I've seen a lot of people saying that he dies, or that they changed the ending so that he doesn't die. I don't want to give anything away, obviously, but I love it when I read stuff online that is put forward with such complete (authority), and then it becomes canon because other websites pick it up and you just sit there, shake your head and say, 'No, you don't know. That's not even remotely what's happening'."

Goyer added: "But there are definitely different endings that we've been playing around with, some versions of which will show up on the DVD as deleted scenes. We're doing a third test in the coming weeks, and that will be the ending that was scripted. We've never tested that ending, so we'll see how that goes. There were also a lot of differences of opinion as to - and, unfortunately, until the movie comes out, I can't fully reveal this. But there was a lot of internal dissent between different parties [New Line, Marvel and Goyer] as to what way to go with the ending."

Regarding Nightstalkers (a spin off franchise starring Blade 3 co-stars Jessica Biel and Ryan Reynolds): "I know this sounds crazy, but, originally, New Line... it could go any different direction. There could be another Blade; there could not be another one. There could be a Nightstalkers; there could not be another one. There could be another Blade without Wesley. New Line was willing to do that. It just depends."

Could Spawn and Kill Bill 2 star Michael Jai White take the role of Blade? "Different people online have said that he should be the new Blade. He's a good actor, and he certainly knows martial arts. We used to talk about if we did a television show maybe he could play Blade. The difference between Blade and Batman, having another actor play the character, is that, with Batman, there had been the Adam West Batman, and then there was Michael Keaton. And people were wondering how the franchise would continue if it wasn't Michael Keaton. With Blade, there's only been one version, and it's always been Wesley. If it were a prequel, I could see the audience buying it. Would the audience buy it if it wasn't Wesley and it was a sequel? I don't know."
