Marvel Studios has announced the delay of the project Blade reboot due to the ongoing writers strike.
In 2020, Disney postponed the release date of Blade from 2023 to 2024 after the exit of former director Bassam Tariq.
Creator of True Detective, writer Nic Pizzolatto, was unable to finish re-writing the screenplay for the feature ahead of the Writers Guild of America deadline.
Blade, based on a fictional character published in Marvel comic books, was initially introduced as a supporting character in films before starring in standalone films.
The upcoming Blade movie is being directed by Yann Demange and also features Aaron Pierre, Delroy Lindo, and Mia Goth in prominent roles.
Fans of the Blade franchise are disappointed with the news of the delay but are hopeful that the project will resume once the writers strike is over.
Marvel Studios has not made any official statement regarding the future of the Blade reboot.
