Marvel has found a new writer and director for their MCU Blade movie. Deadline reports that Yann Demange (White Boy Rick, Lovecraft Country) has signed on to direct the Mahershala Ali-starring film with Michael Starrbury (When They See Us) writing the screenplay. The new creative team comes after director Bassam Tariq departed the movie last month.

The film will star Ali as the titular character, making his on-screen MCU debut after being heard in a post-credits stinger for Eternals. Marvel originally had the film set to bow on November 3rd, 2023, but Marvel has pushed that date out to September 6th, 2024.
