Mahershala Ali said,‘It was really cool, getting to do that’
There was a crucial cameo in the post-credit scene of eternals of Mahershala Ali. The mystery voice of Eric Brooks, better known as Blade was none other than two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. Marvel had announced Ali’s casting as half-human half-vampire superhero Blade at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
Mahershala said, “It was really cool, getting to do that. It was scary. Because, you know, you’re talking before you’re filming it. I’m pretty particular about my choices, like most actors, and so having to make some choices – even with a line, vocally – this early on, it brought up some very real anxieties. And it made the job real. It’s like, ‘Okay, this is happening now’, you know, and that’s exciting.”
