The movie and franchise that showed them the possibilities of the modern-day superhero movie. If you don’t know what I am talking about, it is Blade. And the great day-walking, vampire-slaying badass is coming back in the MCU in a huge way.
The Blade reboot is happening. And an actor has already been attached to portray the titular vampire hunter – award-winning actor Mahershala Ali. The actor is known for his roles in True Detective, Luke Cage and Alita: Battle Angel
