“Sooner or later, the thirst always wins.” This statement is true in
respect to fans’ thirst for more of the infamous daywalker Blade. Years after the original franchise ended, Marvel
Studios announced at last summer’s San Diego Comic-Con that two-time Oscar-winning
actor Mahershala Ali will portray Blade in the MCU.
After two great films and one beset by some of the most entertaining productions issues EVER in Trinity, it's time the daywalker returned and it looks to be in great hands.
Blade’s return to the big screen
is a win-win for both the fans and the MCU.
Fans crave new Blade adventures and the MCU needs to keep tackling new genres to
stay innovative and avoid audience disinterest.
The original Blade trilogy was ahead of its time, grossing over
$415 million at the global box office. The MCU now has an
exciting opportunity to further raise the bar for superhero adaptations by
incorporating supernatural stories into its expanding universe. With much to
look forward to, let’s explore the possibilities for Blade’s thrilling future.
