Marvel Studios’ Blade reboot, starring Mahershala Ali, is set to begin filming soon, and casting has already wrapped with Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierre. Filming for the movie is rumored to start before the end of the year, so you’d think we have more movie news here and you’d be right. We now know exactly who will do the cinematography for the film. According to the author of Next Best Pictures Does Mavity, Narcos: Mexico cinematographer Damian Garcia will shoot the film alongside director Bassam Tariq.
Blade will be the first film to drop off Marvel Studios’ Phase Five film project slate. Not much is currently known about the Blade reboot, but Stacy Osei-Kuffor was tapped to write the film’s script. The Daywalker made its debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during The Eternals post-credits scene featuring Kit Harington. The film will star Ali, Lindo, Pierre and is rumored to bring Harington back as Dane Whitman.
The next Marvel Studios movie to hit theaters is Thor: Love and Thunder. The movie looks absolutely insane from everything we’ve seen so far and that’s saying a lot for a movie that follows the madness of Thor: Ragnarok. Taika Waititi returns to direct love and thunder, and even he says it’s the craziest movie he’s ever created. Previously, the director said that the Thor sequel would raise the stakes to an insane scale. During a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Waititi went into detail about how love and thunder is the craziest thing he’s ever done in his life.
“Well, just between [me and] you and the readers, I’ve done some crazy bullshit in my life. I’ve lived, like, ten lives. But it’s the craziest movie I’ve ever done,” Waititi explained. “If you wrote all the elements of this movie, it wouldn’t make sense,” the director added, “it’s almost as if it shouldn’t be done. If you walk into a room and say, “I want this and this and that. Who’s in it? These people. What are you going to call it? Love And Thunder. I mean, you would never work again. Maybe I won’t after that.”
The studio describes the film as follows: “The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on an unprecedented journey – a quest for inner peace. But his retreat is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, as Mighty Thor. Together they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s revenge and stop him before it’s too late.
The film is directed by Waititi and will star Chris Hemsworth in the lead role, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star Lord . , Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Christian Bale as Gorr the Butcher God. In addition to directing, Waititi will also reprise his role as Korg. Thor: Love and Thunder in theaters July 8, 2022!
