We have known since 2019 that Marvel was working on a new movie featuring the vampire hunter Blade and we would see Mahershala Ali in the title role, but it has been reported that the studios is in talks with Bassam Tariq to direct the film.
Bassam Tariq directed the rap drama “Mogul Mowgli”, which was his first major film. He has also made a number of documentaries and won numerous awards.
Nothing has been released about the film or confirmed by Marvel so we will have to stay tuned to learn more moving forward.
Blade is a human-vampire hybrid, who since his tragic birth, Blade has spent his long life seeking to rid the world of vampires like the one that killed his mother. Over the years, he has mastered his own style of fighting monsters of all kinds. He was introduced into the Marvel Comic “The Tomb of Dracula #10” in 1973 as a supporting character, but later went on to star in his own storylines.
