Snipes as Jamal Asfari would be nice. I'll be interested to see how they interpret the Blade character. Snipes left an indelible mark on the character, enough so that the comics changed Blade to a half-vampire and eventually mimicked the Blade films style for the character, but could never get the coolness that Snipes's brought to the character. And that's something even David Goyer could not do in Blade: The Series, when Sticky Fingaz took over the role.

I wonder if Fiege will go more to the original Blade route. Then again, if it's true that Ali was the one who got Fiege to cast him as Blade, it doesn't seem like Marvel had any set plans for the character and Ali was the one who got things moving. So, I wonder if Ali will be the driving creative force for this film and if he wants it to be more like the Snipes Blade, it will be.

I wouldn't mind seeing some of the coolness of Snipes's take on the character combined with the supernatural mythology from the comics, moving away from the scientific vampirism of the films. It worked for the films, in selling Blade to mass audiences, however if Blade is now part of the MCU, the supernatural aspect opens the door for more stories. And it could team him up with Dr. Strange, Ghost Rider, and Helstrom. Maybe Scarlet Witch as well.

I'm sorry Supreme, in general I agree with you more than disagree, but some of your ideas here I don't agree with. Even though Amandla Stenberg is being pushed by Hollywood she hasn't proven she can get enough young or older people to actually support her films, especially with her as the star or being prominently in them, outside of the first Hunger Games. While The Hate U Give was praised by some it only made $35 million off a $23 million budget. And The Darkest Minds made $41 million of a $34 million budget. That's not to say that she won't eventually become the star I think Hollywood is investing in, but so far, that hasn't come to pass. I can't see putting a movie on her shoulders. Perhaps one of the Disney Plus shows, especially if she's part of an ensemble.

Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth didn't wreck shop with MIB: International; they wrecked that franchise. It got pilloried by the reviewers and press. It hasn't even made $80 million domestic yet, off a relatively cheap $90-110 million budget. I don't think that's going to have any real bearing on them in the MCU, and while I don't think MIB: International was as terrible as lots of other people, it's poor showing does not sell Thompson and Hemsworth as bankable outside the MCU. Once again, both are good actors and likable and could eventually get there, but aren't there now. And Hemsworth has had several shots at it, but hasn't found a non-Thor role or franchise yet that is a hit with mass audiences.

Fast and Furious is already a diverse franchise. It's been ahead of the curve there. And while it will get more diverse-featuring female characters more prominently in the next entry I gather-as well as I think an upcoming female-led spin off or entry-it was a diverse franchise from the start. It's not like the mostly lily white franchises that are at times awkwardly diversifying that causes some to complain about 'forced diversity.'

For its time period, the original Star Trek was diverse, and throughout it's run, it has been more diverse than other television series. And Discovery has expanded on that. Comparatively Star Wars has not been as diverse and still has a ways to go to catch up to where Star Trek has already been.

The movie Solo-while decent-was a totally unnecessary film-and I think it deserved its fate. It was unasked for, it was a money grab, and it was cashing in on nostalgia months after some in Disney-Lucasfilm and the Hollywood Press mocked nostalgia while defending The Last Jedi. The Solo story was too lightweight and undercut the character of Han Solo. For one, it muddled if not outright ruined Han's character arc in Episode 4. In that film he went from a selfish person to someone willing to stick his neck out for his friends and for a cause that wasn't just about himself or money. Yet, Solo has him already at that point, and that his bluster in Episode 4 was just a bluff because he's always been a softy with a heart of gold underneath. Solo took away some of Han's danger. Solo also wasted Thandie Newton and it also took away some of Lando's competence. As a film itself, it wasn't bad, and better than Episodes 7 and 8, however it was a story that could've been told in a comic book or novel. They wasted something like $300 million on that film, and for what? You could've given that money to schools, the homeless, etc.

hmm.  they have to do this right.
Who to direct?  who to write?
What supporting characters?  What villain(s)?  Any all-new characters? (e.g., N'Bushe Wright's character)
.. and of course, what about Wesley?  Hmm. Jamal Afari?
Whistler is owned by Warner/New Line, so he's off limits.. It's just as well, could be nice to see Blade's comics mentor instead--

Mahershala Ali will be the next 'Blade' as Marvel rolls out its new slate of movies



Marvel made a host of super announcements at its panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego on Saturday, but saved arguably the biggest news on the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for last.

Two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Blade, previously played by Wesley Snipes.
Ali was on hand for the announcement and given a hero's welcome as he revealed the news by wearing a "Blade" hat.

Blade is a character in the Marvel universe who is half-human, half-vampire and hunts down the undead. The character also was adapted to the hit movie "Blade" that starred Snipes in 1998. Snipes went on to reprise the role again in 2002 and 2004.
Ali, who has won Academy Awards for his roles in "Green Book" and "Moonlight," most recently starred in HBO's latest installment of "True Detective."

A lot more MCU announcements here:

The last Blade movie was 14 years ago, I have no issue with it not being Wesley.

I though IF was fine.

Daughters of the Dragon would be cool.

Feb 2021 is for Shang-Chi. Earliest for BP is 2022 unless something drops out. I.e. Inhumans was supposed to be a movie.

THE ABSENCE OF BP 2 REALLY WORRIES ME. EITHER THEY'RE GOING TO UNLEASH BP 2 ON US IN FEBRUARY 2021 AS IT SEEMS NOW, OR THEY'RE GOING TO DO SOMETHING REALLY STUPID AND INTRODUCE SHURI AS BP BY WAITING SO LONG THAT CHADWICK BOSEMAN...WHO'S NOW IN HIS MIDDLE 40'S...CAN'T REPRISE THE ROLE OF T'CHALLA.

I DO LIKE THE NOTION OF JANE TAKING OVER AS THOR, ESPECIALLY WITH CHRIS AND TESSA WRECKING SHOP AS THE NEW MIB. THEY'RE SMARTLY CONTINUOUSLY DIVERSIFYING THEIR PORTFOLIO, RIDING THEIR OVER THE TOP MCU SUCCESSES INTO OTHER ROLES.

BTW THE NEXT MEGA FRANCHISE THAT WILL DIVERSIFY BY 2021? THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS. REMEMBER THAT YOUR SUPREME ILLUMINATI IS TELLING YOU NOW, SO WHEN IT HAPPENS? YALL  CAN THANK ME.

KNOW WHAT OTHER FRANCHIES IS GOING TO DIVERSIFY? STAR TREK. AND STAR WARS WILL CONTINUE TO DIVERSIFY. BTW THE SOLO MOVIE DIDN'T SUCK. IT SHOULDN'T'VE TANKED THE WAY IT DID. I THINK IT WAS MORE BAD TIMING THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!


There is soooooo much good stuff up here? That I'm absolutely thrilled...even though  BY FAAARRRRR THE MOST DISAPPOINTING THING ABOUT THE ABOVE IS THAT WESLEY SNIPES WON'T GET A REPRISAL AS BLADE. .


MARVEL SHOULD LET WESLEY SNIPES BE IN THE MCU AGAIN, UNVEILING HIS REPRISAL OF THE ROLE AS A MASSIVE SURPRISE AND USING IT TO PROPEL THE NEW BLADE INTO THE ROLE IN THE SAME WAY THAT ALL 3 SHAFTS WERE IMPORTANT PRESENCES IN THE "SHAFT" SERIES OF MOVIES.



THEY COULD'VE GIVEN WESLEY A SEND OFF WHILE SPINNING OFF TWO NEW BLADE IDEAS; MAKE THE CURRENT BLADE INTO "BLADES". ONE IS ALI, BLADE'S SON, AND THE OTHER IS FALLON GREY, BLADE'S DAUGHTER FROM THE 616 COMICS. THEY ARE THE RESULT OF BLADE'S UNION WITH DR. KAREN JENSON FROM BLADE 1. WHEN DR. KAREN FOUND OUT SHE WAS PREGGERS, SHE SHOOK BLADE BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T WANT HER KIDS RAISED IN BLADE'S MERCILESS BLOOD DEATH HORROR AND LOSS SOAKED WORLD. FALLON BECAME EXTRA POPULAR IN SCHOOL, AND I THINK HER STORY SHOULD BE THE STORY OF A YOUNG ADULT. MAYBE A HIGH SCHOOL TEEN, LIKE MILES MORALES. I THINK SHE SHOULD BE PLAYED BY OUR CONSCIOUS AFRAKAN DAUGHTER/SISTER AMANDLA STENBERG.




I REALLY THINK THAT AMANDLA STENBERG WOULD WRECK IT WITH THE YOUTH IN DISNEY+ WHILE BRINGING EN MASSE APPROBATION FROM WE ADULTS. I REALLY THINK SHE CAN CULTIVATE A FOLLOWING ON DISNEY+ AND MAKE A GUEST ON MCU "BLADE".


 MAHERSHALA ALI COULD PLAY ERIC BROOKS JR., SON OF ERIC BROOKS SR. AKA BLADE. ERIC JR. IS THE ELDER TWIN, AND HIS VAMPIRISM KICKS IN BEFORE FALLON'S DOES. HE DECIDES TO LOOK FOR HIS FATHER, AND RUNS ACROSS "THE NIGHTSTALKERS" LED BY WHISTLER'S DAUGHTER AND HANNIBAL KING...WHO'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR BLADE AND WATCHING BLADE JR. THEY TRAIN BLADE JR., AND ALI DOESN'T DON THE ICONIC BLADE UNIFORM IN THIS OPENING BLADE MOVIE AS WE LEARN MORE ABOUT ERIC JR. AND THE NIGHTSTALKERS AND WHOEVER THE MAIN VILLAIN IS. INSTEAD, ERIC HAS HIS OWN KNIVES AND DBL ENDED BLADE SPEAR STYLE, ALONG WITH THE CLASSIC HI TECH WEAPONS LIKE SUN DAWGS, THE UV ARC BASED WEAPONRY, UV GRENADES, ETC. INSTEAD OF THE ONE HANDED LETHAL MACHINE PISTOL THAT BLADE SR. ROCKS? BLADE JR. ROCKS THE TRULY FEARSOME AND INTIMIDATING HK MP 7A1



BLADE 2? CAN BE CALLED: "BLADES" OR SOMETHING. IN IT WE FINALLY SEE WESLEY SNIPES, AND SNIPES DIES/RETIRES AND IN SO DOING PASSES ON THE MANTLE OF BLADE SOLELY TO ALI...COMPLETE WITH BLADE'S ICONIC TRENCH, SWORD, SHADES, ETC.





Y'all self defense practitioners here who were MOKF absolute junkies like me remember our boi The Cat?






I think that he should be THOROUGHLY REWORKED and put in the sequel of SHANG CHI. I think The Cat should be played by INTO THE BADLANDS star Daniel Wu.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Qt3EZ19s_Y



Reboot IRON FIST with LEWIS TAN as the star.  After all, Lewis Tan was almost Iron Fist before they settled on Finn. This time? Let's not let Hollywood and Disney racism screw up what should be a very good social, political and [ most important to the studios and suits, after the success of CRAZY RICH ASIANS ] money making move.





Keep Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing.




And let's have us some DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON, thanks. Disney+ it.









What do yall think?
