The long-gestating new Blade film has lost its second director.

Deadline reports that Yann Demange, who had been brought on to helm Blade after Bassam Tariq left the project, has now also decided to bounce. Sources to the outlet “stressed” that Demange’s decision to leave “was entirely amicable.” However, it does possibly mean further delays to the film.

The three bright spots are that Mahershala Ali, who has been committed to the project since he was announced as the title character in 2019, is still onboard. Mia Goth has also been added to the cast as of last year. Also onboard is Marvel writer Eric Pearson, who is at work writing the film’s screenplay, however, it was also reported that Nic Pizzolatto was also writing for Blade as well.

However, the number of directors leaving doesn’t inspire confidence in Blade fans, especially in light of how Marvel has been in a state of growing pains for the last few years.

Also affecting the MCU’s compass were real-world events, including the pandemic and then the writers’ and actors’ strikes. Then, there was also Jonathan Majors’ conviction and him losing his position as major villain Kang the Conqueror.

Some might feel like Blade is one of the few bright spots coming out of Marvel, despite this long road to production. However, time will tell what will happen next with Blade.
