Wesley Snipes wants Blade fans to chill.

When Marvel announced Mahershala Ali would star in their reboot of Blade, many of the daywalkers were hot as fish grease.

In a statement to Comicbook.com, the OG vampire slayer said he was a little shocked by the news, but he supports Mahershala in the role.

To all the DAYWALKERS losing their minds right now, chillaaxx. Although the news comes as a surprise, it’s ALL good. Such is the ‘business’ of ‘entertainment!’ Much peace to the MCU crew – always a fan.

Honor and respect to the grandmaster Stan. Congratulations and Salaam to Mahershala Ali, a beautiful and talented artist whose expressions I look forward to experiencing for many years to come. Inshallah, we will someday work together.

Most importantly to my loyal fans, the incredible outpouring of love is overwhelming. I am grateful for the never-ending support. So, ‘nah fret nah worry, it’s not de end of de story.’ Welcome to the Daywalker Klique.

Mahershala showed his appreciation for the support by paying homage to Wesley on Instagram.
