‘Blade’ Is Coming Our Way in 2024

Mahershala Ali

Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con brought us the Marvel panel and it felt nice to have the Marvel panel back in action! News broke for the rest of Phase 4 and while we now know that it will end with She-Hulk and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, it means that the panel gave us a brief look at the rest of Phase 4 but focusing mainly on the line-up for Phase 5. And oh boy, does it feel good to know where Marvel Studios is headed.

One of the big announcements was a release date for Mahershala Ali’s Blade. The casting of Ali was announced at the last Hall H that happened in 2019 and so it has been a long time coming for any kind of information on the movie given that the last time we got a whisper was when Blade was featured in Eternals hinting that Black Knight aka Dane Whitman (played by Kit Harrington) would have his comic connection to Blade. Other than that, we’ve learned nothing else.

Now though, we have a release date for the new Blade movie and fans get excited! And, sorry, the wait isn’t going to be a short one. It’s going to be almost two years before we get to see the Blade stand-alone movie.

Blade release date

Get ready because in the fall of 2024, we get to fall into the Halloween season with our favorite half-mortal, half-immortal. Blade was set to be released on November 3, 2023 but it has been pushed, according to The Hollywood Reporter, to a release date of September 6, 2024. It’s exciting because the character is important not only to the world of Marvel comics but to fans. The ’90s were filled with the Wesley Snipes moves and they brought the character to life for fans world wide and so to see as Mahershala Ali takes over the role is going to be a great time for all!

Until we know more, at least we know that Blade is coming. We just have to wait almost two years for it.
