Very little is known about this movie so far. Mahershala Ali will play the titular character, Blade. Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierre were announced as cast members, their roles unknown. Blade was hinted at in an end credits scene of “Eternals”, only as a voice, so there will likely be a connection to Dane Whitman – played by Kit Harrington – from that movie.
