Marvel accidentally reveals Blade release date?

October 6th, 2021 by Marc Comments

A now-deleted tweet from the official Marvel India page has seemingly revealed the release date for the highly anticipated MCU Blade reboot.

The tweet, which was quickly deleted – but we have screengrabbed below – revealed that the new movie starring Mahershala Ali in the role previously ruled by Wesley Snipes, will arrive in October 2022.

It also pegged Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on March 25th, 2022, and The Marvels on November 11th, 2022.

The release dates for all the projects in the calendar correspond to the dates that have already been confirmed by Disney and Marvel. So, it’s curious to notice that Blade is part of the calendar and that it’s supposedly coming to theaters on October 7, 2022.

We previously learned that Marvel has 15 movies planned between now and 2024 (here) and it seems that, yes, as suspected, Blade is now one of those ‘TBC’ dates.

This is much sooner than we honestly expected the movie to arrive but it’ll certainly be a lot of fun to see the Daywalker and vampires introduced into the MCU.

Director Bassam Tariq will be bringing the character into the MCU.

Here’s a screenshot of the original tweet below:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
