‘Blade’ Reportedly Gets Delayed Once Again

Marvel has plenty of projects bound to be released in the next few years, and we know that most of these projects have been stuck in a sort of limbo due to the historic SAG-AFTRA strike that paralyzed the whole industry as a whole, causing plenty of projects to be both delayed or altogether canceled. 

One extremely anticipated Marvel Studios project that had problems way before the strikes began is ‘Blade.’ It is an MCU-based movie following Eric Brooks, the most notable vampire hunter in comics, and a reboot of the already highly popular ‘Blade’ trilogy that contributed to paving the way for the MCU that we know today

‘Blade’ had hellish production so far, and it was delayed who knows how many times. The most recent rumors indicate that the movie will be delayed once again. This time from November 7, 2025 release to unspecified 2026 release.

Mahershala Ali expressed interest in starring as Blade in 2019, with the official announcement made at San Diego Comic-Con in July of that year. Stacy Osei-Kuffour was brought on to write the film in February 2021, with Bassam Tariq initially set to direct. However, Tariq departed due to production shifts and creative differences. Yann Demange took over as director in November 2022, with Michael Starrbury and Nic Pizzolatto joining as writers. Michael Green was later hired to write a new script. Filming is set to begin in late 2024 in the UK, with additional locations in Atlanta, Cleveland, New Orleans, and Morocco.

The film is expected to feature the Ebony Blade, which made its first appearance alongside Blade in ‘Eternals.’
