Marvel to make new Blade film starring Mahershala Ali
Marvel will reboot the Blade franchise with Mahershala Ali playing the lead. Ali, who has won Oscars for ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Green Book’, will be seen as the half human-half vampire and this will be the first time Blade will return to the big screen since Wesley Snipes film ‘Blade: Trinity’ in 2004. This isn't the first time Ali is in a Marvel project. He played Cornell ‘Cottonmouth’ Stokes in Netflix series Luke Cage.
