Mahershala Ali Shares First-Look Teaser Image Of Him As Blade

Following the conclusion of Phase 4 with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, the Marvel Cinematic Universe officially entered a new era.

With the old guard such as Iron Man and Captain America moving on, Marvel Studios finds itself a position that it hasn’t been in close to a decade: they have a blank slate.

And Marvel Studios certainly seems to be making the most of their blank slate, as their upcoming schedule of features all represent something of an experiment for the behemoth franchise.

First comes Black Widow, which will see Scarlett Johansson play Natasha Romanoff one more time. Then, next February, The Eternals premieres, followed by Shang-Chi a few months later. The following year, Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Stranger In the Multiverse of Madness are sit to hit theaters — both of which seem poised to be more eccentric than the standard MCU fare.

Then, a couple of years down the road, fans will be able to see their dream-casting come to life as two-time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali takes over the iconic role of Blade.

While not much is known about the project at this time, Ali did share a teaser image of himself in character and it was enough to get fans hyped for what’s to come:
At this time, it is unclear when Blade — which was announced by Marvel Studios last summer — will be released, although Phase 5 (sometime after 2022) seems likely.

This week, singer Fantasia was a guest on The Breakfast Club radio show, and the topic of marriage and prayer came up. When one of the male hosts of the show talked about waking up with his wife every morning to pray, Fantasia said, “I respect that.”  Then she said, “We need more men to stand up and lead the way. Most women are trying to be the leader. That’s why you can’t find a man, You can’t be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way.”

When asked to explain her view, Fantasia said, “I feel like it’s a generational thing. We can go real deep on that … but it’s a generational curse and how society have placed our men. And women have to stand up and be the mother and the father and the provider and so then you so bad, so you can’t be told nothing, so that when the right man come, you lose him, because you’re trying to be the man.” She said that though the husband and wife are equals, “you have to let the man be the head of the house.” The comme…
