Mahershala Ali Was Reportedly Ready to Leave Blade, early script female-focused

SHH link
quote:

One person familiar with the production told Variety that, at one point, the script for the upcoming Blade movie “morphed into a narrative led by women and filled with life lessons.”

As a result, Ali’s Blade was downgraded to the fourth lead in the movie. Ali was ready to walk away before Feige hired Michael Green, who co-wrote 2017’s Logan and 2017’s Blade Runner 2049, to rewrite the movie.

There have been several weird rumors regarding the Blade plot. Apparently it was gonna be set in the 1920s at one point.

The same one that makes America Chavez the main character in a Doctor Strange movie. Or that random girl from Black Panther that's supposed to be the next Iron Man.

There should be some skepticism to any of these rumors, with that being said based on Marvel/Disney’s track record I 1000% can see this being real.

So they haven't even (re)written the script and it has a release date before Snow White?

According to Variety, Marvel is now trying to make the movie with a budget of less than $100 million.


So a budget less than Antman, lead ready to walk, tons of delays and rewrites....what could go wrong?

It will still end up as a female-led trash heap that very few women will watch.


I don't think Disney has gained any significant new female following from their radical feminist productions.

They're never going to learn because they're not driven by making a good movie. They're driven by pushing an ideology.

Less than $100M seems to be low, but I don't think it's a bad idea to kind of bring in the reigns on some of these movies a little bit.

I mean I know it was made 11 years ago so it's not apples to apples but even the original Avengers movie had a smaller budget than every single Phase 4 and 5 movie except for No Way Home and Quantumania. Black Widow, Eternals, Doctor Strange, Thor 3, Wakanda Forever, etc etc.

Only Disney could take a movie about a black vampire / human hybrid killing vampires and make them the fourth lead of their own film.
