Osei-Kuffour has worked on Amazon's Hunters and poetry and plays for the stage, but it's really her work on the critically acclaimed Watchmen series from HBO that properly put her on the map.
Her hiring is a sign of Marvel committing to improving their diversity behind the camera as well as in front of it, becoming the first female Black writer to pen an MCU movie.
Back in August, Marvel Studios announced the first Black female director for one of its movies, as Captain Marvel 2 will be helmed by Little Woods and the Candyman reboot overseer Nia DaCosta.
While previous Blade films did cast Black actor Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire killing hero, they were all written by David S Goyer and directed by three white men (Stephen Norrington, Guillermo del Toro and Goyer himself, respectively).
That third film was a famously fraught production, although Snipes has denied that there was any physical altercations with Goyer on the set.
Marvel Studios' reboot of the character is a long way off, slated for Phase Five of their cinematic universe, while we haven't really begun Phase Four yet.
