Trivia:

  • In the scene where Blade and the bloodpack are walking towards the house of pain, you see briefly through Whistler's thermal-scope that Blade is hot blooded unlike the other vampires.
     
  • The phrase "a man without fear" is used in this film. This is another comic book reference, this one a reference to Daredevil, which is now a Ben Affleck film.
     
  • Wesley Snipes' quoting of Sun Tzu - "Keep you friends close, your enemies closer," follows references to the works of Sun Tzu in many other Snipes movies including Rising Sun, The Art of War and Passenger 57.
     
  • Pop Icon Michael Jackson was originally going to have a cameo in the "House of Pain" sequence as a "Vampire Pimp" that Nyssa encounters as she searches the upstairs hall. Jackson had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts and the part was played by a Czech actor. The sequence was ultimately cut out entirely for pacing reasons.
     
  • The corporate artwork in the Caliban building, which is knocked over in the climactic fight scene, represents a DNA double helix.
     

Credits Fun:

  • No real reapers were hurt during the making of this film.
