On July 20, 2019, at the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios announced they would be rebooting the character and integrating Blade into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), with Mahershala Ali being cast as the title character.

Ali has created an amazing trail in pop culture in recent years. After earning his first Oscar-winning performance in 2016’s Moonlight, Ali appeared in big productions including True Detective season 3, Hidden Figures, and Alita: Battle Angel. Ali also won a second Oscar for his work in Green Book. He also appeared in Marvel’s Luke Cage and Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.

According to ScreenRant, Marvel Studios’ Blade reboot will reportedly begin filming sometime in 2021.

Blade Reboot is now casting two speaking roles

The upcoming Marvel Studios Blade film is ramping up production. 

According to reports, the upcoming production is ramping up as two casting calls for black female roles. 

  • Betsy – 20 to 35 year old Black/African-American female. Described as an aspiring heroine, and they are looking for someone with “strong comedy skills’
  • Lucy – 20s to 30s Black/African-American female. She is described as tough and on the run after the death of her mother under “mysterious circumstances,” and is living off the grid.

The character names are probably meaningless but, some news outlets believe these roles could be for Blade’s estranged daughter Fallon Grey, but there is little information to support this theory. 

Hopefully, more details come out soon as the film begins to head into production.
