Hollywood’s hit script continues to wreak havoc on a multitude of productions, and it’s no surprise that it’s coming out of the lineup unscathed.
Today marks twenty days since the Writers Guild of America (WGA) called a new strike in the fight for fair pay for film and television writers. Many productions have been affected in recent weeks and the list is growing. In addition to Lightning, Marvel is an anti-heroic hero.
Directed by Jake Schreier, it will adapt the Marvel Comics of the same name and will form a unique team of antiheroes that includes USAgent, Yelena Belova (Black Widow), Baron Zemo, Taskmaster, Red Guardian, Winter Soldier or Ghost.

Production was scheduled to begin shooting in June, but Marvel was forced to change plans for the film.
As reported by Deadline, the adaptation of Marvel’s anti-heroic comics has been suspended for the start of production, joining films like Blade Runner or a series like Daredevil: Born Again, which also had to remain on standby.
Lightning marks another break for Marvel Studios
Although the script is now ready for lightning, the absence of writers on the set prevents the proper enlargement, which is common in films.
Marvel Studios is at risk of continuing without its writers, but the sensible option is to delay everything in the midst of the storm, even though the delay would probably mean delaying the release date.
It will also be time to adjust schedules, as it has a lightning-fast cast that includes Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Sebastian Stan, Anna John-Kamen, Olga Kurylenko, Wyatt Russell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Daniel Brühl and Steven Yeun. All of them have responsibilities to other students, which complicates filming when it can be resumed.
Lightning is currently scheduled to release on July 26, 2024, but as we speak, that date will almost certainly change.
