With all the hype surrounding upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe projects like WandaVision, Loki, Black Widow, and Fantastic Four, a lot of fans fail to realize that they might be sleeping on the Blade reboot which will see Academy Award-winning actor Mahershala Ali take the reins of the franchise from Wesley Snipes.

To be fair, Marvel Studios has yet to hype up the much-awaited MCU arrival of the ruthless daywalker although the seeds have seemingly been planted for its release date and according to our report from earlier this week, there's a chance that Blade will be dropped between Black Panther 2 and Captain Marvel 2.

This early in the game, digital artist ApexForm is already hyping up Eric Brooks' eventual return to the Marvel film universe. Sharing his marvelous artwork on his Instagram page, Mahershala as Blade looks pretty darn convincing and his potential MCU look is faithful to the source material. I wouldn't have it any other way, to be honest. Check it out here:

Marvel fans have long regarded Wesley Snipes as the definitive live-action version of the character and with a successful trilogy under his belt, it's not hard to understand why Snipes is still a favorite amongst diehards of the comic book film genre. I gotta say though, Ali is the perfect successor to Snipes' legacy and I'm 100% positive that he'll do the role justice.

The MCU's Blade reboot will hit cinemas in 2022.
