In non-comic book news, Searchlight`s historical drama Chevalier, starring Kelvin Harrison Jr. as the musician Chevalier de Saint-Georges, will open in theaters on April 7, 2023; Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is set for May 24, 2024; and A Haunting in Venice is dated for September 15, 2023.
In the case of Blade, the yearlong postponement is unsurprising, given the recent news that Bassam Tariq exited the project, leaving the film without a director. Marvel has paused the production — starring Mahershala Ali as the title vampire slayer–as the studio looks to hire a new helmer. Given the interconnected storylines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the substantial delay for `Blade` reverberated on the rest of the films in development.
The next Marvel movie to hit the big screen will be November’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which marks the end of Phase Four of the MCU. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced in July at San Diego Comic-Con that Fantastic Four will kick off Phase Six, making Blade and Deadpool 3 the final two films to round out Phase Five.
