Bob Iger’s smiling face against a colorful backdrop of the Avengers characters might deceive you into thinking all is well in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yet, Avengers disbanded, and Earth’s remaining heroes now face monumental multiverse-spanning challenges. With the Multiverse Saga weaving through Phases Four to Six, the stakes have never been higher as fans look forward to the upcoming Avengers installments, Avengers 5 and Avengers 6: Secret Wars.

One potential hiccup in this cinematic odyssey? The highly anticipated Blade reboot starring Mahershala Ali, which has hit yet another roadblock. Initially helmed by Bassam Tariq and Stacy Osei-Kuffour, the project saw them replaced by Michael Starrbury and Nic Pizzolatto, before finally falling into the hands of director Yann Demange and writer Michael Green. Alas, Green’s recent departure has left Marvel once again scrambling for a new writer, sparking fresh outrage among fans already worried by the constant creative turnover.

Kevin Feige’s plan to revisit a more “street-level” approach in the MCU post-Kang the Conqueror’s saga seemed promising. Fan favorites like Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Charlie Cox’s Daredevil are set to spearhead this gritty, more grounded journey. Meanwhile, the supernatural sector of the MCU lays in wait to introduce a UK-based Avengers team, likely revolving around the Midnight Sons.

Despite reassurances that the film’s storyline is set and production will start this fall in Mexico or Brazil, fans on social media are skeptical. Some are calling for the outright cancellation of Blade, arguing that the chaotic creative shifts may lead to a disjointed end product. One fan even suggested getting the creators of John Wick involved to steer Blade back on track. As frustrations mount, it’s clear this back-and-forth is testing fan patience and could possibly impact future releases.

Yet, amidst the turmoil, Marvel keeps forging ahead, with Mahershala Ali ready to bring Eric Brooks/Blade to life. Alongside him are talents like John West Jr., Mia Goth, Aaron Pierre, and Delroy Lindo, whose roles remain under wraps but are sure to intrigue. Despite the setbacks, the introduction of the Midnight Sons and rumored connections to characters like Kit Harington’s Black Knight and Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight hold promise for a thrilling new chapter in the MCU.

What do you think, Disney fans? Can Blade rise from the ashes of these constant rewrites, or is it destined to be another marred masterpiece?
