SDCC 2019: Mahershala Ali Will Play Blade in Marvel Reboot

Marvel can’t get enough of Mahershala Ali. This time, Marvel will have the two-time Oscar winner’s face on the big screen as the baddest vampire hunter in town, Blade.

After taking a turn as the villain Cottonmouth in Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix, and flexing his vocals for the role of the Prowler in the Oscar winning animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Ali will be going after the monsters that prey on the weak in a reboot of Blade.

As this was just announced at SDCC, nothing else has been said about the project. Based on the excitement, it will only be a matter of time until we see Ali in the Blade outfit. He is already rocking a fresh cut and has perfected that killer smile.

We cannot wait to see him as Blade.
