Though it’s been nearly two years since the film’s announcement by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at Sandiego Comic Con and due to delays from the COVID-19 Pandemic, the reboot has finally resumed production and a director has been chosen! As contract details and negotiations are in the final stages, it seems Bassam Tariq (Mogul Mowgli) has been tapped to direct the Blade reboot, with Stacy Osei-Kuffour (WatchmenHunters) penning the script for Marvel.
