Marvel Studios saw to it that the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fans have a lot to look forward to in 2020 and 2021 as the Phase 4 lineup was revealed by Kevin Feige. The biggest surprise of the night was when Kevin brought out two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, who then revealed that he was cast as Blade.
The Blade trilogy (1998-2004) was a beloved superhero franchise that starred Wesley Snipes as the vampire vigilante. While Blade’s release date is not out, we do know that Mahershala is taking the reigns from Mr. Snipes.
In an interview, Avengers: Endgame star Chris Pratt could not handle his excitement over Mahershala playing Blade in the MCU. “Oh my God, I cannot wait to see Blade. That to me is going to be so sick. I’m a huge fan of the original. Mahershala Ali as Blade, when I heard that I was like ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to see that.’”
