Mahershala Ali will play the lead role in the highly anticipated movie Blade as the legendary vampire hunter. Ali’s first announcement as the lead role took place at San Diego Comic-Con 2019. In addition, he also appeared as an unaccredited voice cameo in the Eternals movie in 2021.

However, the development of the movie faced many challenges, including changes in writers and cast members.

Currently, Eric Pearson, an experienced writer from Marvel Studios, is working on the latest screenplay for the Blade movie, continuing the previous draft that Michael Starbury wrote.

It is planned to release in the fall of 2025, but there may be changes to the schedule after Demange’s release.

Since it was first announced, the Blade project has undergone many concept changes, including a period story, a low budget, and an all-female ensemble cast with Blade only as a supporting character.

One of the actors previously involved, Aaron Pierre, has confirmed that he is no longer involved in the project after a change in creative direction.

In addition, there was recently news that Mahershala Ali will be cast in Universal’s latest Jurassic World film which will begin production this summer and release in July 2025.

This raises concerns that the Blade movie may experience even longer delays. Some speculations even suggest that Blade might be one of the projects quietly canceled by Disney CEO Bob Iger, who has previously made some tough decisions.
