After 15 years, Blade returns to the big screen with nothing more and nothing less than the Oscar winner, Mahershala Ali, as the vampire hunter. The last person who played this role was Wesley Snipes who starred in the trilogy started by Guillermo del Toro with Blade (1998), Blade II (2002) and Blade Trinity (2004).
As part of the giant Marvel Studios announcement at San Diego Comic-Con, producer Kevin Feige left a giant surprise for the end of the panel: Blade will join the MCU. Not only that, he also revealed that a prominent actor will have the mission to bring to life the new version of the vampire hunter.

This is the Mahershala Ali, winner of the Oscar for best supporting actor for his work in Moonlight and Green Book.

For now there are no more details about the new movie of the character, or if it will debut earlier in any of the 10 projects announced, but the actor was presented on the stage of Hall H of Comic-Con.
Blade is a minor character in the Marvel comics and in fact for years he has not had a regular series, however he became popular massively with the film trilogy starring Wesley Snipes.

Although there was a desire among fans that Snipes return to the role, beyond his age, the election of Ali realizes that the studio is definitely putting everything on the table now that it will no longer feature the Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr.
