But, as of yesterday, you can also call him Blade.
On Saturday, Kevin Feige surprised everyone at Comic-Con with the announcement that Mahershala will star as Blade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Actual footage of me hearing the news.
I mean, he was basically BORN to play this role, originally portrayed by Wesley Snipes.
Anyone familiar with Mahershala's work in films like Moonlight, Hidden Figures, and Green Book know he's more than capable of embodying the essence of Eric Brooks/Blade, the bad-ass half-vampire who hunts his own kind.
That's likely why the reaction to his casting was so overwhelmingly positive.
Find someone who looks at you the way Taika Waititi, director of the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, looks at Mahershala.
Really, people are pumped for this reboot.
Fans can't wait to find out who's writing the screenplay and directing.
Others are just excited that vampires are FINALLY joining the MCU.
This person isn't a huge fan of superhero films, but Mahershala might change that.
I'll leave you with this:
Blade's release date is still TBD, but until then, check out the official logo below and let us know what you think about Mahershala's casting in the comments.
