And here’s an even better look.
The Imaginative Hobbyist isn’t the only graphic artist to imagine Mahershala Ali as Marvel’s Blade. Boss Logic did his own rendition of the Alita: Battle Angel actor as Blade. (Related: Graphic Artist Boss Logic Mocks Up Zac Efron as Adam Warlock)
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige announced Ali would take on the role of Blade in an upcoming Marvel Studios feature film simply titled Blade. (Related: Kevin Feige Brings Mahershala Ali to Hall H to Announce Blade)
The last time Blade graced the big screen was all the way back in 2004 with Blade: Trinity. Wesley Snipes starred as Blade alongside Kris Kristofferson as Whistler, Ryan Reynolds as Hannibal King, Jessica Biel as Abigail Whistler, and Dominic Purcell as Drake.
Rumors about a Blade movie starring Wesley Snipes swirled back in March. While it appears Snipes won’t be reprising his role as Blade in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, the rumors of the film did hint at a possible plot. The rumors indicated that the film would see Blade training his daughter, who would most likely be Fallon Grey. (Related: Marvel Developing R-Rated Blade Film Starring Wesley Snipes)
What do you make of Mahershala Ali as Blade? Do you think this is what he will look like once we finally get that first trailer and poster for Marvel Studios’ Blade?
