Although Blade was a pioneer in the action genre and the comic book genre at the time of its premiere, the two sequels made to it – and the tax fraud cases of the title character Wesley Snipes – have shattered the franchise light in recent decades. And New Line Cinema didn’t really do anything with the Lightwalker character, but maybe it’s better that way because thanks to that, the rights went back to Marvel. As early as 2019, the comic book publisher announced that they were already working on the vampire hunter, who Mahershala Ali, this time, would shape. Since then, it has also emerged that Stacy Osei-Kuffour ( Watchmen, Running, Hunters) will answer. According to Deadline, they have also chosen the blockbuster director: their sources know that Bassam Tariq will be the one whose name sounds quite interesting in Hungarian, but we will say it softly.
So far, the director has shot mainly short (Red Mountain Choir, Mogambo) and documentaries (These Birds Walk, 11/8/16), but last year’s directing Mizul Mowgli, starring Riz Ahmed, was already a drama in the classical sense that was not won. To praise the critics. Examining our cultural differences through work through the history of a British-Pakistani rapper, Zed, most highlighted that he makes no compromises despite his delicate choice of subject matter, makes no compromises, juggles with plenty of ideas, and his emotional arch is well-crafted.
Earlier, by the way, there were rumours that, like the black Superman film at Warner Bros. Pictures, Kevin Feige would like to appoint an African-American director to head Marvel’s Blade; they also reportedly included the names of Regina King (One Night In Miami), Shaka King (Judas And The Black Messiah), Steven Caple Jr. ( Creed II. ) and Barry Jenkins ( Moonlight, If Beale Street Could Tell), among others.
