There were moments when it seemed like Travis Scott’s album “Utopia” would never see the light of day. However, on July 28, the album was finally released and it was well worth the wait. “Utopia” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and remained there for four consecutive weeks. Scott is also preparing for his “Utopia – The Circus Maximus Tour”, with tickets having gone on sale last week. Due to high demand, additional tour dates were added.
Scott is not one to be deterred by delays, which is why it’s not surprising that he expressed interest in creating a soundtrack for a film that may never be produced. On the morning of September 4, Scott shared on X (formerly known as Twitter) that he would love to do the soundtrack for “Blade”.
In May, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Marvel Studios had halted pre-production on “Blade”, which stars Mahershala Ali. The film was originally scheduled to begin filming in Atlanta in June, but this plan was scrapped due to the ongoing Writers Guild Of America strike.
However, as Uproxx’s Matt Prigge pointed out, this doesn’t mean a new “Blade” film, featuring its two-time Oscar-winning star, will never be made. Marvel intends to resume pre-production once the strike ends. If and when it does come out, it will be the second attempt at bringing the character to the big screen, following Wesley Snipes’ iconic portrayal in three previous films.
