Marvel will restart Blade film franchise: the main role will be played by Mahershala Ali

At the international comic book festival Comic-Con in San Diego, Marvel announced a reboot of the dark and

bloody film franchise "Blade". Instead of Wesley Snipes, the main role of the vampire hunter will be played by Mahershala Ali, known for the films “Green Book” and “Moonlight”.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Alihimself suggested that Marvel reboot the franchise with himself in the lead role. Everything turned out so chaotic that the film still does not have a director, and what’s more, there is no synopsis, no names of directors, no approximate release date. How the actor persuaded the studio to take such an adventure is unknown. The special magic of the Oscars, no less.

The original Blade was released in 1998 and became one of the highest-grossing comic book films. In just one period of theatrical release, the film paid for itself almost three times.
