If Anthony Mackie Wants To Play Blade, What Does That Mean For Marvel Phase Four?

Anthony Mackie already has one role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that apparently isn't good enough for him. In addition to playing The Falcon, Mackie also wants to take Wesley Snipes' job.

But DC […]

This thing is so action packed, it flies right in the face of everything we typically hear about the series. Reminds me of that time somebody cut a romcom trailer out of The Shining. Still, I'll be interested to see Bill Condon direct some big actions scenes… if indeed he has.
