The MCU Blade movie has now lost a second director. Word has come out that Lovecraft Country vet Yann Demange has left the project.

The Wrap is reporting that Demange exited the movie “a while ago.” The first director to leave being Bassam Tariq. The move was said to be “amicable” and that Marvel is more concerned with getting the film right than rushing it forward.

The MCU Blade movie is currently being written by The Fantastic Four’s Eric Pearson. Previous scripts were written by Michael Starrbury, Nic Pizzolatto, and Michael Green. Over the years, the project has undergone several changes to both cast and crew.
