Filming for MCU’s ‘Blade’ Reportedly Delayed
It was among the most anticipated announcements of the most recent San Diego Comic-Con event for Marvel Studios, but had also had among the least among of traction as any Marvel project; it appears as though it’s only getting worse, as filming for the MCU’s Blade has reportedly been delayed.
During 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con panel for Marvel Studios, there was a plethora of announcements that indicated a renewed direction for the lauded Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the introduction of a number of characters and properties that would usher the universe forward.
The final announcement, and what came as a tremendous surprise to those in attendance and those observed after the fact, was the debut of Mahershala Ali; the Academy Award-winning actor who had now been tabbed to bring to life the Daywalker to the vast MCU pantheon of heroes.
It was an announcement that excited fans, as the character had already been subject to an iconic live-action adaption throughout the 2000s, and with Ali certainly stepping in as one of the most respected performers of this generation.
Since that announcement little headway has been made on the upcoming project, outside of a small cameo made in the closing moments of the Eternals post-credit scene, and it turns out that the film is even further away, as filming for MCUs Blade is reportedly delayed.
Following earlier reports that filming was underway this summer, it seems as though that has been delayed, with Lizzie Hill of The Cosmic Circus (Via The Direct) reporting that the production of the project would be delayed until October.
The new report states that the project is set to start initial filming in Atlanta Georgia at Tyler Perry Studios, proceeded by filming on location in New Orleans and Morocco.
Although we are fairly certain about the delay, there is currently no reason as to why filming on the project has been pushed back yet again; there is a possibility that Marvel’s panel at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con could explain the changes.
