Mia Goth Addresses ‘Blade’ Delays: “They Want To Make A Great Movie” – ‘MaXXXine’ Premiere

Original Blade star Wesley Snipes might be poking fun at the delay of Marvel Studios’ reboot of the vampire slayer franchise, however, for Mia Goth, who stars in the upcoming version, good things come to those who wait.

Recently the movie, which is still scheduled for a Nov. 7, 2025 theatrical release per the ComScore calendar, saw its second director, Yann Demange, exit. He followed Bassam Tariq’s departure, who was previously set to helm for a fall 2022 production start (he remains aboard as EP).

Speaking to Deadline at the world premiere of her latest A24 movie MaXXXine, Goth said that in regards to the Blade delays, those behind the movie “really care, they do. They want to make a great movie. That’s the sense that I get from them and that feels good.”

Goth will reportedly make her MCU debut as Lilith in Blade, a charater who is known in the comics as a key supernatural villain. Lilith tries to take the blood from Blade’s daughter.

Blade had further delays last year due to the WGA strike. Eric Pearson (Agent CarterThor: RagnarokBlack Widow) is writing the script.

In MaXXXine, which opens on July 5, Goth reprises one of her two roles in X. The pic, which she co-wrote with director Ti West, follows Maxine (Goth), after the events of X, as the sole survivor who continues her journey toward fame, setting out to make it as an actress in 1980s Los Angeles.
