The blade is a 1998 superhero film directed by Stephen Norrington and written by David S. Goyer.
It is the first installment of the Blade franchise and is based on the Marvel Comics superhero of the same name.
Marvel Studios’ Blade Release Date
Marvel announced today (12th October 2022) that production on Blade has been halted.
It is now scheduled to premiere on September 6, 2024. It was previously scheduled to hit theatres on November 3, 2023.
The film’s release date of 2023 was announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, and it will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Five as well as The Multiverse Saga.
Kevin Feige made the official announcement at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 alongside star Mahershala Ali.
Filming is expected to begin in October 2022 at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. There is also talk of filming in Cleveland, New Orleans, and Morocco.
Blade Mcu Plot: What Will It Be About?
The plot of the reboot is unknown at this time, but we won’t be meeting Ali’s Blade for the first time. Ali appeared in the end credits of Chloe Zhao’s Eternals as a voice cameo, speaking with Kit Harrington’s soon-to-be Black Knight.
According to a Geek Vibe Nation leak, the film will take place over an 80-year period, beginning in 1900 and ending in 1980.
This timeline, however, has yet to be confirmed by Marvel or those working on the project.
There has also been an alleged plot leak from the /tv/ board on 4Chan, though this should obviously be taken with a grain of salt, stating that the film will end by following the life of Blade’s daughter, Brielle Brooks.
The plot is also said to begin in the 1920s with Blade’s pregnant mother, who receives treatment from a vampire who tries to prey on her. None of this has been confirmed.
We can expect to see familiar faces such as Blade’s trusted partner Abraham Whistler and his original mentor, Jamal Afari. Who Blade will face off against is also intriguing, as The Boys’ Anthony Starr is rumored to play Dracula.
The villain previously appeared in Wesley Snipes’ trilogy, so we’re not sure if Kevin Feige and his team will want to revisit old ground on the big screen.

Blade Mcu Cast: Who Will Be in It?
The MCU version of Blade was revealed at SDCC 2019. So far, the cast includes Mahershala Ali, Delroy Lindo, and Aaron Pierre.
Ali will take on the role of Blade, portraying a new version of the iconic daywalker.
And, while director Bassam Tariq had been attached to direct the project, he will now serve as an Executive Producer instead. The decision was made “due to continued shifts” in the “production schedule,” according to Marvel.
The Hollywood Reporter reported on November 21, 2022, that Lovecraft Country director Yann Demange will join Blade as a director. THR also reports that Michael Starrbury will join the project as a writer.
Is There a Trailer for Marvel’s Blade?
Unfortunately, there is no trailer for Marvel’s Blade yet. There is still a long way to go if one waits for a trailer because production has not even begun.
If there is one, it could be released as early as 2023.
Beware, monsters and vampires: Blade is finally making his debut, and this time he will be in a Marvel Cinematic Universe canon.
