WWE provides their Superstars with a lot of television exposure and Mustafa Ali wants to cash in and make a transition into the MCU. When Marvel Studios announced a Blade reboot, many fans were curious. Now they are casting for that film and drawing some attention.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to add a South Asian actor in his 20s to 30s. They sent out a casting call looking for someone who fit that role. WWE Superstar Mustafa Ali was one of the many interested parties.

Blade is casting for a South Asian male, 20s-30s. The actor must be open to training although actors with fight experience are encouraged for the role!

Character description: “Though he’s taken a vow of silence, his eyes tell us he has been through strife.”


Mustafa Ali posted a photo of himself with his hand raised. He was also showing off his incredible physique, just in case the casting director needed proof that he works out. “Hello Marvel Studios,” Mustafa Ali tweeted out “I think you’re looking for me.”

We’ll have to see if this lands Mustafa Ali the role of a lifetime, but it never hurts to shoot your shot.
