Blade Director Yann Demange Leaves Troubled MCU Movie

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Blade movie has now lost its second director as Yann Demange has left the project.

The Wrap is reporting that Demange, who is best known for his work on Lovecraft Country, left the project “a while ago.” He’s the second director to leave, with the first being Bassam Tariq. The move was said to be “amicable” and that Marvel is more concerned with getting the film right than rushing it forward.

Currently, Blade is being written by Eric Pearson (The Fantastic Four). Previous scripts were written by Michael Starrbury, Nic Pizzolatto, and Michael Green. The project has undergone several changes to both cast and crew over the years.

Who was originally set to direct Blade?

Blade’s production had a turbulent period throughout the last two years, with previous director Bassim Tariq leaving the project in 2022. Originally set to release on November 3, 2023, the movie ended up being delayed to September 6, 2024. Now it is set for November 7, 2025. It will star Mahershala Ali and Mia Goth, who is rumored to be playing the role of Lilith.

Wesley Snipes previously starred as the titular Daywalker in the New Line Cinema Blade trilogy from the late ’90s to early 2000s. He was then played by Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones in the 2006 Spike TV series. Most recently, in 2022’s Marvel’s Midnight Suns video game, the character was voiced by Michael Jai White.
