They are preparing the new films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and actor Jason Statham could be a bombshell signing.
The half-human half-vampire named Blade, is ready to restart as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The winner of two Oscars for Best Actor (Moonlight, Green Book) Mahershala Ali will inherit the role he once played Wesley snipes. Chances are high that the movie will dig deep into the Blade catalog to add a lot of supporting characters. Now all the reports indicate that Jason statham will participate in the battle as Van Helsing.
Van Helsing is an instantly recognizable name in horror mythology. The character is a key part of Dracula lore who is generally depicted as an elderly vampire hunter. Many actors like Peter Cushing, Laurence Olivier, Anthony, Christopher Plummer and Hugh jackman They have played the role on the big screen over the years. Will Jason Statham join them? Hopefully they will confirm it soon.
It is a strategy widely used by Marvel.
The film studio knows that stars attract audiences, so they didn't mind using Vin Diesel or Bradley Cooper on characters made entirely in CGI like Groot and Rocket. Which is why casting Jason Statham as a luxury supporting player rather than a leading superhero should come as no surprise. Because if the fans really like it, it might even have its own spin-off movies.
According to the information, which comes from the same sources that were correct that there would be a Justice League Dark program for HBO Max and that Netflix is developing a sequel to Extraction, which are correct, they assure that Jason Statham was interested in playing Daredevil. But now the actor is 53 years old, and the studio wants someone much younger to play Matt Murdock if Charlie Cox doesn't return. As such, they have raised the idea of him joining Blade as Van Helsing.
The original Blade trilogy was packed with action and martial arts scenes, and Jason Statham definitely fits that project. Now you have to see if she is willing to play a supporting role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
