A presumed production list provides an early synopsis for Marvel Studios’ Blade reboot, which is said to begin production in the summer of 2022.
A leaked production list appears to reveal an early synopsis for Marvel Studios’ upcoming film reboot of Blade, starring Mahershala Ali as Daywalker.
That document was shared to Twitter by the user Moviebuff1219 (@ dodgerfan4life9). It describes Marvel Studios’ Blade as being in “active development” and listing a number of key figures associated with the production, including director Bassam Tariq, screenwriter Stacy Osei-Kuffour, producer Kevin Feige and stars Ali and Delroy Lindo.
The alleged synopsis of the new Blade the movie will definitely sound familiar to those who are familiar with the character’s original Marvel comics or his previous adaptations on screen. “Even being a half-human / half-vampire, ‘Daywalker’ Eric Brooks (Ali) has honed his abilities to hunt down the undead who have long terrorized humanity,” it reads. “A human-vampire hybrid since his tragic birth, Blade has spent his long life trying to rid the world of vampires like the one who killed his mother. Over the years, he has mastered his own style of fighting monsters of all kinds. . “
The list also explains that Blade is scheduled to begin production at Trilith Studios in Atlanta in the late summer of 2022. This confirms previous information from The Hollywood Reporter, who reported that the film was to go into production late next summer when it first broke the news of Lindos’ casting earlier this month. This seems to disprove the tweet that the official Marvel India Twitter account made (and quickly deleted) back in October, which listed Blade‘s release date is October 7, 2022.
Created by Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan, the character of Eric Brooks / Blade first appeared in the 1973s Dracula’s grave # 10. Eric Brooks made his live-action debut in 1998, starring Wesley Snipes as the dhampir in the New Line Cinema movie Blade. Snipes subsequently repeated his role as Blade in the 2002s Blade II and the 2004s Blade: Trinity.
That Blade film trilogy was followed up by the TV show Blade: Series, where Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones took over the role of Eric Brooks. Blade: Series was aired in a single season of 13 episodes on Spike from June to September 2006.
At the San Diego Comic-Con 2019, the aforementioned Feige officially confirmed that Marvel Studios was developing a movie reboot of Blade as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Ali attached to the lead role in the title role. This marks the second major live-action Marvel role for Ali, who previously portrayed key antagonist Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes in the first season of Marvels Luke Cage on Netflix in 2016.
Ali technically made his Marvel debut on the big screen earlier this month, making a voiceover as Blade in the post-credit scene of Eternal. “It was scary,” Ali said of the cameo not long after Eternal come to the cinema. “Because you know you’re talking before you film it. so early on it brought up some very real concerns. And it did the job really. It’s like, ‘Okay, this is happening now’, you know, and it’s exciting. “
At this stage, Blade still lacks an official release date, though Feige has previously confirmed that the vampire-centered reboot would not be part of Phase Four of the MCU.
