From zombies to vampires...

Joshua Mikel The Walking Dead Blade Marvel

The Walking Dead actor Joshua Mikel has joined the cast of the upcoming Blade movie from Marvel Studios.

According to insider Daniel Richtman, Joshua Mikel is set to make an appearance in the Marvel Studios feature Blade. The actor is best known for his work in the seventh and eighth of the AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead, where played Jared, a member of The Saviors.

Joshua Mikel had a minor role in 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. He played an enforcer who worked for Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins) and had a small fight scene with Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne. It’s unclear if he’s playing the same character in Blade.

Blade’s troubled production

Blade was at one point expected to begin filming this month but the film’s production start date and release were pushed back after it lost director Bassam Tariq. The folks at Marvel Studios are taking their time with finding his replacement.

For now, Blade is being rewritten by Beau DeMayo. The screenwriter has previously worked on the Disney Plus series Moon Knight. He is also developing the revival of X-Men: The Animated Series for the streaming service.

The cast of Blade currently features Mahershala Ali as the titular titular vampire hunter, with Delroy Lindo, Aaron Pierre and Milan Ray on board in undisclosed roles. It’s unclear if the film’s new production timeline is going to affect the cast in any way.
