14-year-old actress Milan Ray plays Keisa Clemmons on ABC The good years to restart. According to The Direct, she will be a crucial character in Marvel Studios Blade. This suggests she could play Fallon Grey, Blade’s daughter.
Fallon Gray was supposed to make her own Marvel Comics series debut in 2015 as part of Tim Seeley and Logan Faerber’s “All-New All-Different” relaunch. When the series was announced, Seeley described Fallon Gray as “the anti-Peter Parker”. However, fans criticized the creative team for being all-white and all-male despite being centered around a black woman. Seeley ended up leaving Marvel and the project was scrapped.
Interestingly, Brielle/Bloodline was introduced as Blade’s daughter in the Avengers/X-Men #1 Free Comic Book Day one-shot in 2022 and hasn’t appeared since. Milan Ray could bring either version of Blade’s daughter to action, finally delivering on his promise to fans in 2015.
Who do you think Milan Ray will play in? Blade if not Fallon Grey?
