In an interview with the Comic Book Movie medium, Mark Tonderai commented on his desire to direct the film of Blade with Mahershala Ali. “I would love to do Blade. For me, it's just the kind of things I like to do. I also think Stephen Norrington did a brilliant job with the first adaptation.

For what Blade, I would love to do it. "

Tonderai has worked mainly directing and producing T.V. series, but he is no stranger to the comic book adaptation.

Tonderai aims high and states that he would also be interested in directing a film of James bond. “I would also like to do Bond. The reason behind wanting to do something this big is because something that I grew up with since I was little. It has always been part of my family life. You want to make a Marvel movie because it's a different discipline. When you do a project like that, it's not really a Mark Tonderai movie. It's a Marvel movie.
