There hasn’t been much said about Blade since Mahershala Ali was brought out 2 years ago. But yesterday came the first bit of news about the project as Deadline reported that Watchmen scribe Stacy Osei-Kuffour was being hired to pen the MCU debut of the vampire slayer, making her the first black woman to ever pen an MCU film.

It’ll likely be a while until we hear more news for this property, be it a director hire or a new cast member, given how far off this property seems to be at the moment. All in all, it is very cool that they got someone like Osei-Kuffour. Watchmen was arguably one of the best superhero shows to ever come out and as a huge fan, this makes me super hopeful for what they have in store for Blade.
