The half-human half-vampire named Blade is set to reboot as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The winner of two Oscars for Best Actor (Moonlight, Green Book) Mahershala Ali will inherit the role that Wesley Snipes once played. Chances are high that the movie will dig deep into the Blade roster to add a lot of supporting characters, including Jason Statham.

All the reports indicate that Jason Statham will participate in the reboot as Van Helsing. Van Helsing is an instantly recognizable name in horror mythology. The character is a key part of Dracula lore who is generally depicted as an elderly vampire hunter.
