Mahershala Ali Leaving Blade

Ali’s concerns are understandable. Blade is one of Marvel’s most iconic and popular characters, and it’s important that he gets the big-screen treatment he deserves. It sounds like the original script wasn’t up to par, but Marvel Studios has since taken steps to address the problem.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has hired Michael Green, who wrote the screenplays for Logan and Blade Runner 2049, to work on a new script for Blade. Green is a talented writer with a proven track record of writing great stories about complex characters.

It’s also worth noting that Marvel Studios has reportedly reduced the budget for Blade to under $100 million. This is a good sign, as it means that Marvel is committed to making a character-driven film that focuses on Blade’s story, rather than a big-budget spectacle.

With Green on board to write the new script and a reduced budget, there’s reason to be optimistic about the future of Blade. Ali is a great actor, and he has the potential to give one of the best performances of his career in this role.
