A new Blade movie was one of the most celebrated Marvel news announced at Comic-Con 2019, and the project seems to have started moving.
The film will be part of Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will feature Mahershala Ali in the role of the vampire hunter, who was previously played by Wesley Snipes in a highly acclaimed trilogy in the early 2000s.
According to Deadline, Marvel Studios is in the final details of a deal with director Bassam Tariq, who was reportedly chosen after reviewing several hero film ideas.
Tariq and Marvel are close to a deal, which is already taken for granted by both parties involved and should be confirmed very soon.
No details have been revealed yet for the feature film, which promises to delve into the darker aspect of the Marvel universe.
There is also hope for new crossovers with Sony, as the studio has already worked on a vampire film Morbius, with Jared Leto in the lead role.
