It was recently revealed that the character of Daredevil will be more friendly to the audience as compared to the original dark and gritty character. The fans of Blade franchise are unhappy when the news came out that the writer of Moon Knight (2022) Beau De Mayo will be help
ming the project as the lead writer. The fans felt that Marvel Studios even failed to capture the violent essence of Moon Knight and may do the same for the gritty character of Blade.
Fans Unhappy For A PG-13 Blade By Moon Knight Writer
With an already ‘diluted’ version of Daredevil coming in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (2022-) and in Daredevil: Born Again (2024), the fans are now worried about the fate of the vampire-hunting dhampir (a child of a vampire and a human).
Moon Knight although beloved by the people was a bit damped-down for a more friendly and comedic series. Many people thought that Marvel Studios put a hold on the violence that the comics had portrayed originally. The people took to Twitter to complain against the series while hoping that the upcoming Blade movie will live up to the expectations and hype of the original trilogy.
The script for #Blade is reportedly being rewritten from scratch

But the Moon Knight series writing was kinda average, neither good nor bad just normal and mostly comics. pic.twitter.com/QlWtvCA2mF

Yeah, this movie is gonna be a stinker. The Moon knight show was boring and had a lot of filler.
It also watered down the source material, as is expected from Disney.

Since the original Blade Trilogy was a massive hit, the people expect more from the reboot of the franchise and not a diluted series with watered-down violence and making it more friendly. People feel that some series and movies are made to be dark and gritty like The Punisher and Deadpool.

Blade Should Be A Rated Like Deadpool
Like the humorous films of the merc-with-a-mouth, Ryan Reynolds shines as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool in the Deadpool franchise. The franchise with two movies to its name and a third one on the way has been incredibly successful in terms of story, writing, humor, and, violence. Although there would be no humor in a reboot of Blade, there must be enough violence to appeal to a large audience and not just PG-13 kids.
The recent news came after director Tariq Bassam decided to leave the project amidst shooting. Blade reboot will hit theaters across the world on 3rd November 2023.
