Milan Ray (The Wonder Years) has reportedly joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming “Blade” reboot. The news comes from The Direct who reports Milan Ray has been cast as a key character in Marvel Studios’ Blade. Specifics about Ray’s role, which is unconfirmed by Disney and Marvel, are being kept under wraps.
The Direct further points out that, considering Milan Ray’s age, signs point to her suiting up as Fallon Grey, the daughter of Blade. On the page, Grey was written as a 16-year-old popular girl from Oregon whose life is turned upside down when she discovers her vampire hunter lineage, which brings her on a monster-hunting adventure with her long-lost father.
As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Marvel or Disney, we will treat this as a rumor for now.
No plot details have been revealed about the film so far however a brief summary was given on Production List which you can see below:
“He is known to be a vampire hunter— half-mortal, half-immortal— who tries to rid the world of vampires as a way of avenging his mother, who was killed by a vampire as she gave birth to him.”
Mahershala Ali will play the iconic vampire hunter. Delroy Lindo (The Harder They Fall, Da 5 Bloods) and Aaron Pierre (M. Night Shyamalan’s Old) also star.
