Mahershala Ali Called Marvel And Demanded To Be Cast In 'Blade' And He Got The Part

Alicia D'Aversa 23 Jul 2019

Blade has already been done before, but the movie and tv business is all about the revivals and remakes these days.

The original 'Blade' starred Wesley Snipes.


And he definitely delivered.

But now, Mahershala Ali will be taking on the role and making it his own.

Ali had actually called Marvel Studios and asked to be casted.


Feige told THR, "When Marhershala calls, you answer".

He called right after he won the Oscar for Green Book.

He's already familiar with superheroes.


He was in six episodes of Luke Cage so you know he could handle the drama and voiced The Prowler in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

All in all, he seems like the perfect casting.


I am super confident that he is going to make the role iconic in his own way.
