Blade 2023: Everything We Know So Far

The most awaited and everyone’s favorite half vampire half human anti-hero, Blade finally coming on screens. Although the film was first announced in July 2019 during San Diago Comic Con, on July 2022, Marvel Studios president Kevin Fiege announced the film will release on November 3 2023. Watchmen writer Stacy Osei-Kuffour is on board for writing the script for the reboot to bring the vampire hunter into the MCU.

Marvel hired Bassam Tariq to direct this project. The original Blade trilogy starring Wesley Snipes was a popular series and gained mass fandom with the first part earning a sum of $131 million worldwide. It was Marvel’s first real box office success while Blade 2(2002) earned $155 million worldwide becoming the highest earning movie of the trilogy. With fingers crossed and high hopes we can only wait for the movie to hit the theatres and be as good as expected as marvel’s phase 4 continues to disappoint be it in VFX or cinematography.

The movie is yet to start filming in October 2022. It would be shot in Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. Other locations of filming reportedly include Ohio, Morocco, New Orleans, and Cleveland. The production was meant to start production in late 2021 but things didn’t go so well. According to reports, Stacy Osei-Kuffour was given more time to garnish the script and make it as good as the previous parts were.rn

CAST AND ROLES OF THE SUPERHERO STARRER

The multi-Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, famously known for Moonlight, is the first actor who got confirmed to be in the reboot’s cast. He is playing the hybrid vampire hunter Blade. Kit Harrington who also appeared in Eternals is cast as Black Night. He is rumoured to have important role in the movie. Aaron Pierre and Delroy Lindo are also cast in some unrevealed roles, probably some important ones.

Rumors

Rumors are that Dracula would be the main antagonist of this movie. The Boys star Antony starr who is famous to play Homelander in the series is cast in this role. Dominic Purcell acted this character in Blade: Trinity(2004). But as we know, Marvel is known for surprising its fans by giving something no one expects.

What could possibly happen in the movie?

There are many theories about the plot of the movie but Marvel studios might just stick to the origin story. A pregnant woman was attacked by a vampire. After going into labor, the woman died while giving birth to a half-human half-vampire baby who was later named Eric Brooks. After many years, Eric took the name “BLADE” and using his day walking abilities, started to hunt bloodthirsty vampires. Or Marvel could possibly just skip the origin and just show us the present time in MCU after the multiversal cracks. The blade could show us the events after Doctor Strange’s Multiverse of Madness and other movies that are coming before Blade like Fantastic Four and Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania.
