Michael B. Jordan Eyed For ‘Blade’ Role

Published: Thursday 7th Apr 2016 by David

As DC Comics’ ‘Batman vs Superman‘ continues to pull in mixed reviews its rival Marvel has set it sights on a number of black actors as they begin work on the latest ‘Blade’ project.

One of the names on their list of possible stars?

Michael B. Jordan.

‘Blade’ is a Marvel superhero who protects humans from vampires and was portrayed by Wesley Snipes for the very first time on screen in 1998.

The actor’s big screen portrayal of the character in its first movie swept up $131.2 million at the box office and now, after being picked up Disney, Marvel is keen to replicate this success with a younger player.

Collider reports:

Marvel is gearing up an official reboot to their Vampire Action franchise, Blade. While there is no word on a director, the studio is reportedly looking at a very short-list of actors that includes Michael B. Jordan and Birth of a Nation’s Nate Parker; with relative unknowns Aml Ameen who had a small role in Lee Daniels’ The Butler, and Elijah Kelley from Red Tails and Hairspray. Marvel aims to start filming the movie this summer and as of this report, no mention on whether or not the movie will get an R-rating. With Marvel owned, of course, by Disney, fans are expecting a friendlier PG-13 rating.

If Jordan bags the role it would follow his success in the movie ‘Creed‘ and the commercial bomb that was the latest ‘Fantastic Four’ release.

    • Lana Del Bae April 7, 2016

      He’d be so good but he doesn’t get the roles he should. It’s so sad.

    Is he the only young black actor in Hollywood? Is there no one else to hand a job to?

  6. Lake Erie April 7, 2016

    I can see him playing Blade. He did a great job in “Fantastic Four” so I see him showing no mercy in this too. #GoodSh!T Jordan!
