BLADE Star Mahershala Ali Offers Update on the Marvel Movie and Is “Encouraged With the Direction” — GeekTyrant

Blade star Mahershala Ali has shared an update the Marvel movie, which is one that I’m actually excited about. It’s been over four years since Blade was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con, but it’s still coming and Ali’s update is optimistic. During a recent interview with EW, he said:

“We’re working on it. That’s the best I could tell you. I’m really encouraged with the direction of the project. I think we’ll be back at it relatively soon. I’m sincerely encouraged in terms of where things are at and who’s on board and who’s leading the way as far as the writing of the script and the directing and all that. So that’s the extent of what I can tell you.”

Blade will be the second R-rated film to come out of Marvel Studios, the first is Shawn Levy and Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming Deadpool 3. Yann Demange (Lovecraft Country) is directing the film, and he previously said:

“We are going to have fun because Mahershala is such a deep actor. I’m excited to show a kind of ruthlessness, a roughness he has, that allows him to walk the earth in a particular way. I love him for that. He’s got a dignity and integrity, but there is a ferocity there that he usually keeps under the surface. I want to unleash that and put it on the screen.”

The script for the movie was initially written by Michael Starrbury (When They See Us) and Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective) is now working on the new draft of the script. Mahershala Ali, Mia Goth, and Delroy Lindo are attached to star in the movie.

It was previously reported that Marvel is looking to go with “a darker tone on this film than other MCU projects have been in the past.” I just hope that the story for this movie ends up being great. There’s so much potential!
