Is It Possible ‘Blade’ Reboot Will Debut Next October?

You know the old saying: Believe half of what you read and none of what you hear.

But, in this case, horror fans will want to believe what was written today on the Marvel India Twitter account–the official, verified account for Marvel Entertainment in India. That tweet, as reported by has now been deleted but lists the much-anticipated Blade reboot premiering Oct. 7, 2022–far earlier than expected.

Could this posting be a mistake? Possibly. Especially since it was reported that filming wouldn’t even start until July 2022. But, until another “official” announcement is made, fans can dream.

The new Blade–directed by Bassam Tariq (Mogul Mowgli) from a screenplay by Stacy Osei-Kuffour (Watchmen)–stars Oscar winner Mahershala Ali in the role made famous by Wesley Snipes in the original Blade trilogy.

The original 1998 Blade movie–directed by Stephen Norrington and written by David S. Goyer–not only gave birth to two sequels, but is generally credited with sparking the phenomenon now known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Marvel Comics character of the human/vampire hybrid known as Blade was created back in 1973, when writer Marv Wolfman and artist Gene Colan wanted to flesh out the supporting cast of their award-winning Tomb of Dracula.
