Mia Goth (Pearl, X) has been cast in Marvel Studios’ Blade movie, set to star alongside Mahershala Ali who plays the titular character, with speculation that Goth will most likely be playing a major role.
Deadline was first to break the news, with few details to go off as the plot and character information for Blade is currently being kept very tightly under wraps, which should come as no surprise to the typical Marvel Cinematic Universe fan as Marvel Studios are known for their secrecy.
Despite Goth’s casting details being kept locked in a secret vault for the meantime, speculation and theories as to who she could be playing have already made their way to the internet.
Who Is Mia Goth Playing In MCU’s ‘Blade’ Movie?
It seems that the one name that has been popping up the most since the announcement was made is that of Marvel Comics’ Spitfire, aka Jacqueline Falsworth, possibly being related to Sonya Falsworth who will be played by Olivia Colman in Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion series for Disney Plus.
Colman’s Sonya Falsworth never appeared in Marvel Comics, however, it could be that Sonya Falsworth will be the live-action mother to Jacqueline Falsworth and relative to John Falsworth, aka Baron Blood.
The lore behind the Falsworth name in Marvel’s history goes deep, with Baron Blood being a major vampire villain in the comics, who later bites his niece Jacqueline Falsworth, aka Spitfire, which ends up providing her with super abilities similar to Blade.
Another note to add is that Spitfire has had affiliations with teams such as the Invaders, Hellfire Club, Vampire Nation, and MI-13, with MI-13 already set to be debuted in the live-action MCU, further adding more fuel to this well thought fan theory.
Marvel’s MI-13 will most likely be the team Goth will be joining if this theory turns true, as both Blade and Dane Whitman, aka Black Knight, were members of the MI-13 team that primarily focused on dealing with paranormal situations – Captain Britain was also a member, a character that Henry Cavill has previously shown interest in playing.
It’s safe to assume that Mia Goth will be playing Spitfire, aka Jacqueline Falsworth, in Marvel Studios’ Blade movie. However, the cast and crew have yet to announce who Goth will be playing in the MCU.
Marvel Studios’ Blade releases in theatres on September 6th, 2023.
