Earlier this week our friends over at Murphy Multiverse revealed two different video production companies registered by Marvel Studios. These production compies are used for the entire production (as well as working titles) to keep the true film name under wraps. The first registered name was Solve Everything LLC which could be connected to the still-unannounced Fantastic Four movie. The other production company that was registered was Grassfed LLC.
The Ronin speculates this LLC could be a reference to Blade starring Mahershala Ali. The film has been extremely quiet since it’s the initial announcement last San Deigo Comic-Con. They report it could be a throwback to the original Wesley Snipes films that had “human blood farms” for the Nightstalkers. The entire trilogy has multiple references to humans being referenced as cattle by the vampires. Never-the-less Grassfed will begin filming in the UK where most Marvel films have been shot; most likely as Pinewood Studios UK.
Recently, John Wick director Chad Stahelski has told Comicbook.com that he would love to direct the Blade film.
“If the opportunity ever came, I would like to take a stab at…the one that really jumps out to me would be like Blade. If they were going to redo Blade or something like that, just because I feel that one, for some reason, the vampire martial art action vibe. That would be a cool one to stretch and try and reinvent.”
However, the studio is looking for a Black director to take the reigns of the character. Many suggested Get Out director Jordan Peele. Unfortunately, the director has no intention to direct a studio-led film. Let alone a big-budget film like Marvel Studios Blade. Another fan-favorite to direct the film include King Arthur and The Equalizer director Antonie Fuqua to helm the project. Fuqua was offered Morbius by Sony but passed on the project in 2018. He then confirmed he was also meeting with Kevin Feige afterward about future projects.
Blade has no set release date
