According to reports, Bassam Tariq of 2020 indie film Mogul Mowgli starring Riz Ahmed is now expected to handle direction on Blade. If reports are correct, Tariq will beat out “dozens of candidates” to become the sixth person of color to direct for Marvel Studios, joining the likes of Ryan Coogler, Chloé Zhao, Destin Cretton, Taika Waititi and Nia DaCosta.
