Blade will make his MCU debut in Disney Plus’ Moon Knight.
According to a new rumor, Mahershala Ali appears in Moon Knight as the Daywalker in the upcoming show.
Oscar winner Ali was announced as the new Blade at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2019.
Bassam Tariq signed on to direct the upcoming Blade film.
On September 6, 2019 I scooped on Facebook that Moon Knight “is the MCU’s version of The Dark Knight with weird mystical stuff. In other words, they are planning on showing Khonshu and delving into the freaky Egyptian aspects of the character.”
Sure enough, Moon Knight embraces the supernatural.
Of course, a vampire hunter fits into that category.
As a result, it won’t be just Blade.
The same report claims that Ethan Hawke stars as Dracula in Moon Knight.
Without a doubt, Hawke as Dracula is superb casting.
Fans speculated his role for months.
For instance, many believed he was Werewolf by Night, another ’70s Marvel Comics horror icon.
Marvel Comics debuted in The Tomb of Dracula in 1972.
Critics praised the series; moreover, the book had a successful run with 70 issues overall.
Nevertheless, Dracula is not among Moon Knight’s comics foes.
Rather, Marvel Studios uses Moon Knight to launch the Blade reboot.
Despite the lack of historical context, it’s a logical move.
The darkness of Moon Knight bridges superheroes with the supernatural.
Furthermore, Moon Knight will join Midnight Sons with Blade.
Wesley Snipes starred as Blade in the 1998 film. Blade bit the box office with a sharp $131.2 million global haul.

More importantly, Blade proved that a Marvel superhero pic had teeth.
Blade opened the doors to the MCU nearly a decade later.
Snipes appeared in two more Blade movies before critics and fans trashed 2004’s Blade: Trinity.
Tariq praised Snipes’ work as Blade.
We can’t deny what Wesley Snipes did, which was he basically got this whole ball rolling. A Black man created the superhero world that we’re in, that’s just the truth.
A year ago, I leaked Marvel Studios’ interest in bringing back Snipes, perhaps as Dracula or his mentor Abraham Whistler.
Although it seems like Snipes is not Dracula, I can’t rule out his participation.
