I have no idea what’s going on with that movie and I don’t think they have hired a director yet. What I will say is that what made Blade so special was the director, Stephen Norrington, and I don’t think any of the sequels were that effective, they didn’t have what he brought to the material. The movie felt ahead of its time in an important way, I think The Matrix set the bar for the kind of comic book movies we see today.
The 47-year-old actor continued to utter words that Marvel Studios executives will surely not like (or take as a challenge).
What those movies had, and that a lot of modern comic book movies miss, is a clear vision of direction: Blade is a one-dimensional character, he pops up, he looks cool, and he kicks butt. Mahershala will be amazing at doing that, but you need strong writing and direction to help elevate that character, and I don’t know what Marvel’s vision is for Blade. I just know that Mahershala is an amazing actor and that he will be great in the role.
The movie of Blade produced by Marvel Studios and starring Mahershala Ali it was announced at Comic-Con a couple of years ago, but it won’t be part of Phase 4 of the MCU. It is surely planned for stage five as well as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3That is, we won’t hear from her for some time. The most interesting thing of all is that with the arrival of Blade we can confirm that vampires exist in the MCU continuity; we hope that the studio will make the best of the possibilities and give us an outstanding show.
The high lords of Marvel Studios continue to prepare the Blade movie in silence. Stage 4 has started and the company has many plans for the future, will we see a big change from the style seen in the first three phases of the MCU? At the moment Black Widow is in theaters and Disney Plus, the tape with which we start the next saga.
