“Blade” Reboot: “John Wick” Director Would Take Over Marvel Film Starring Mahershala Ali
“John Wick 4” and “John Wick 5” are already being planned and in addition to the action series with Keanu Reeves in the lead role, director Chad Stahelski has his hands full. He still has one wish …
A number of successful action films that could become cult, many viewers in the cinemas and critics who enjoy the entire franchise – what more could you ask for? “John Wick” director Chad Stahelski has a very specific answer to this, which he now reveals in an interview with Comicbook.com:
Should someone offer to direct the reboot of “Blade”, he would probably not say no: “I have a weakness for this vampire martial arts action atmosphere. It would be cool to expand and try and reinvent that ”. And all of this, although Stahelski does not see himself as a gigantic superhero fan, as he explains himself!
If someone offered to direct the reboot of “Blade”, he probably wouldn’t say no
And in theory, Stahelski’s wish could even come true. A “Blade” reboot was announced last year and the project has not yet had a director.
When will the “Blade” reboot come and what will it look like?
There is not much to say about the “Blade” reboot. The only thing that is certain so far is that Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”) will play the leading role and follow in the footsteps of Wesley Snipes – who will probably also have at least one guest appearance.
Before 2022, “Blade” will most likely not be released in theaters. If you take into account various delays that the corona pandemic has already caused and will probably continue to cause, the reboot could also come later.
What the new edition will look like and how close it will come to the original from 1998 has not yet been determined. As we reported earlier, the “Blade” reboot could be the beginning of a whole new, dark MCU chapter. You can read more about this here:
Marvel hero Moon Knight is slated to appear in “Blade” – and that makes total sense!
If you are now in the mood for “Blade” with Snipes in the lead role, you will find it at Amazon Prime Video * Vexmovies.
