Blade was exciting when it came out and I think it demonstrated how to present comic book material onscreen and make it palatable and sucessful to a wide audience.
"Batman" did that in 1989.
As did Superman
in 1978. I think, though, that X-Men
were made in styles that were easier to apply as templates to other comic book movies than Donner's Superman
or Burton's Batman
, although the first half of Donner's Superman
was influential on both Singer and Raimi in putting their respective Marvel superhero films together.
