Also announced the other day at San Diego Comic-Con was that Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali [Green Book, Moonlight, House of Cards] will be the new Blade. Apparently he rang Kevin Feige up and asked to play the part! That definitely means that Wesley Snipes, who wants to reprise the character, is out, though rumours are going around that he still might be in the new film in some capacity.
There are no other details so far other than this will be a brand new Blade film included in the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The three Snipes films were ‘R’-rated, and I really hope that this one will be too, though sadly I have my doubts.
