Since the Blade reboot was announced, we haven't had much more details. But actor Mahershala Ali has shared what fans can expect from the new Marvel Studios movie.
Last summer it was announced that the actor Mahershala Ali (True Detective, Green Book) would spearhead the reboot of Blade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But since the big reveal, there has been nothing but silence on this very interesting project. In addition, the two-time Oscar winner is still the only officially attached actor, and it doesn't look like he's going to be released anytime soon, as the studio is trying to consistently add him to the franchise.

Mahershala Ali He hasn't talked much about the Blade reboot since he was first cast, but in a recent interview, the former star of Luke cage finally revealed some details about what he has in store for his Blade.
So I did this Marvel show for Netflix called Luke Cage. So when doing that show, the day it was released, I went to my agent and said, "What are you doing with Blade?" Because I kept hearing that they were trying to find a way to redo and put it back together. And it was exciting for me to be in that Marvel space and TV, but my goal had always been the movies. But also being able to participate in television in a very specific way that had real meaning, but my main goal was to be able to really navigate between film and television. "

The Green Book actor later acknowledged that Wesley Snipes had a huge impact on him growing up, and the connection that he could inherit the role of the vampire hunter from someone he looked up to seemed too obvious to ignore.
“Wesley Snipes was someone I recognized and had an impact on my confidence. And only in me, as being in my own truth and my own strength in a certain way. So I have always followed his choices and was really inspired by his work and many others. But Wesley in particular. I mentioned him as someone who really wanted to take on that role and tackle it. I love that it's darker. That's it in terms of tone. Blade will explore the darkest corners of Marvel Studios. Since he is a little darker than the rest of the hero and that element was attractive to me ”.
