Mahershala Ali Talks About Blade In The MCU!

Oh man, since hearing this man’s voice in Eternals, my hype for Blade went through the roof! In a recent interview with Empire, Mahershala Ali talks about that moment and more regarding Blade.

From Empire, here’s what Mahershala Ali said:


It was really cool, getting to do that. It was scary. Because, you know, you’re talking before you’re filming it. I’m pretty particular about my choices, like most actors, and so having to make some choices – even with a line, vocally – this early on, it brought up some very real anxieties. And it made the job real. It’s like, ‘Okay, this is happening now’, you know, and that’s exciting.

That Marvel world is obviously the biggest in film, and just to get my little introduction to that – starting with the Comic Con a couple years ago, and now the very early stages of stepping into the shoes of that character – it felt special and really cool. I’m excited to get going and do more.

We’re getting there, we’re getting close.

I’m ready to see Mahershala Ali play Blade. Just hearing his voice alone I knew right away it was Blade, and he sounded perfect. Now it’s just a matter of time until we see him in full character!

Marvel StudiosBlade is set to release on October 7, 2022!
