O artista conceitual Rob Brunette compartilhou nas redes sociais sua versão de Mahershala Ali (True Detective, Green Book) como Blade.
Na descrição, Brunette citou o casaco de K (Ryan Gosling), de “Blade Runner 2049“, como uma das inspirações, além é claro do novo visual do anti-herói nos quadrinhos.

Fan art Friday has arrived early this week. I had a lot of fun drawing Shang-Chi, so I decided to take a “stab” at drawing @mahershalaali as the new Blade. I used the same process as Shang-Chi where it was entirely drawn in 2D. I used to love drawing portraits of my favourite musicians when I was a kid, so it’s fun getting back to that. I use elements of photographs for other details on the jacket and swords, but for the most part it’s all just painting in Photoshop. Slowly building things up and adding some effects at the end to create a bit of atmosphere. . For his costume, I felt the shiny leather trench coat was a little outdated so I went for something more like Ryan Goslings jacket in Blade Runner 2049. It’s a bit more worn down. The other details on the suit were inspired by the new Blade comic outfit, mixed with a bit of realism. Who should I draw next? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mahershalaali #fanartfriday #fanart #blade #bladerunner2049 #marvel #mcu #marvelcomics #comics #phase4 #superhero #conceptart #conceptartist #characterdesign #costumedesign #photoshop #digitalpainting #process
