A Massive update regarding the Blade Movie for fans as the director Bassam Tariq announced that he will be stepping down to the position of Executive Producer due to some problems with the script work and also as it was announced that there were continued shifts in production schedules.
Very Recently, the director took to his Instagram account and announced that he was stepping down from the project to an Executive Producer role due to undisclosed reasons. There have also been some rumors that the script for the Blade film was very poorly written with only 90 pages of script with a couple of lackluster action sequences.
Mahershala Ali and Kevin Feige were not at all satisfied with the script and how the film is expected to start shooting in 2 months, and with a lackluster script as the way it is, we can assume that the film may not even reach its slated release date of November 3, 2023.
Now the Producers at Marvel are stretched thin, having to look for a new director and a new Scriptwriter who can be very precise and concise regarding their roles and deliver quality content for a recurring character, such as to even meet the requirement of Blade movie release date.
This looks like bad news for all the Blade fans who were looking to see the classic Blade back in action, they might have to end up waiting longer or might end up watching a rushed movie of Blade if Marvel is only looking to meet the release date requirement. As of now, there have been no official announcements as to what path Marvel minds will end up taking, so there still is hope for Blade fans to witness an epic movie.
