Marvel Studios has a bunch of movies and shows lined up for the next few phases. Undoubtedly, the most eagerly awaited project for die-hard fans and casual viewers alike is ‘Deadpool 3.’ We’ve delved into various wild rumors so far, touching on the movie’s overall plot and potential cameos. However, a new rumor has surfaced from X that might tickle the fancy of fans who remember Marvel movies before they fell under the MCU umbrella.
According to the reliable source of scoops and leaks, Daniel Richtman, on X, Blade, the Marvel’s most prominent vampire hunter, is rumored to make an appearance in the upcoming ‘Deadpool 3.’
This rumor seems quite plausible, especially considering that ‘Deadpool 3’ is set to heavily incorporate the Multiverse. Up to this point, we’ve heard that former X-Men villains and various versions of Wolverine and Deadpool are slated to make appearances in the film. After all, the movie revolves around Deadpool tampering with timelines, ultimately leading to his complete integration into the MCU.
The only lingering mystery revolves around who will portray Blade in the movie—Wesley Snipes or Mahershala Ali. Wesley Snipes is the iconic face most people associate with the character, as his stellar performance played a significant role in the success of the original film. However, Mahershala Ali is slated to feature in the Blade reboot within the MCU, a project he is deeply passionate about, despite its troubled production that even sparked rumors of cancellation a few weeks ago.
Both actors bring their own strengths and drawbacks to the table. Opting for Wesley Snipes would contribute to the nostalgia factor, although it seems to be somewhat overplayed in recent times. On the other hand, choosing Mahershala Ali could provide a fresh start for his standalone project in the MCU.
