Nic Pizzolatto ('True Detective') joins Mahersala Ali's 'Blade' as screenwriter

It was in the Comic Con 2019 when Kevin Feige made a brand new announcement: mahersala ali was going to be the Blade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At some point. This half human half vampire character was created by Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan in 1973, and starred with the face of Wesley Snipes an action trilogy in the early 2000s. Ali would spearhead the addition of this vampire slayer to the MCU, but the film took its time to come to fruition.
