We have been hearing a lot of discussion on the new film by Marvel, Blade. The studios has been in talks with talents. But, it seems that they have found the person who is going to direct their new feature. This movie will contain Mahershala Ali. He is all set to play the iconic vampire hunter. As you must have guessed if you have read the comics, the story has been adapted from the comic books.
Now, the person who is going to direct this new movie is Bassam Tariq. You must know this director because he has directed Mogul Mowgli, which features Riz Ahmed. Now, the members of the studio have been looking at potential names for directing this film for a considerable amount of time. They have been conducting meetings since the fall. But, it has not amounted to fruition. It has also been revealed that at one point in time, they were considering the duo of writer-director but they have seemed to drop that idea. The story has been written by Osei-Kuffour.
Blade: The vision of Tariq has been accepted
Since the time that the writer was hired, the studios have been going through the list of possible directors. They have done countless meetings with several potential people. The last round of presentations have ended. It seems that they have managed to rely on Tariq’s vision to make the movie.
This is also something historic in the realm of Marvel movies. It is a fact that this makes him the sixth person of color to direct a Marvel movie. We have to say that Marvel has been looking out for new talent in their new movies. That is why they have been hiring directors such as Taika Waititi who got immense fame after Jojo Rabbit. We hope this movie gets out soon.
