Another big announcement was just made at San Diego Comic-Con as Kevin Feige has announced that two-time Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali will now play Blade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe taking over the role from Wesley Snipes.
I’m going to brag a little as he’s been my choice for over a year now.
The daywalker is finally getting his own movie and we couldn’t be more excited!
The studio has had an in-house draft of a Blade script for years, so it was only a matter of time until they announced something with the vampire hunter.
