Marvel’s Blade remake is seemingly on track to begin filming this year. The exciting update follows a hectic production for the film, entailing an extensive scriptwriting process and multiple delays. It would seem the movie may now be finally getting on track.

Per Dark Horizons, a listing on Production Weekly points toward a Fall 2024 filming schedule for the upcoming Marvel film. This is reportedly in line with Blade‘s current tentative release date of Nov. 7, 2025, though as of yet unconfirmed reports have noted that there is a chance the film will be pushed to 2026.

Secret Invasion’s Olivia Colman opens up about her surprise exit from a popular Netflix series.

A new Blade movie centered around Marvel’s premier Daywalker has been in the works since as early as 2013. In 2019, acclaimed actor Mahershala Ali was confirmed as the film’s star, and gave fans a taste of his Blade in the form of a voice cameo during the post-credits sequence of 2021’s Eternals. In the more than five years having passed since Ali was initially attached to the film, Blade has suffered a series of setbacks including the 2023 WGA strike and subsequent SAG-AFTRA strike.

In December 2023, Ali gave fans an update on the status of the film, saying simply, “We’re working on it.” Ali added, “That’s the best I could tell you. I’m really encouraged with the direction of the project. I think we’ll be back at it relatively soon… I’m sincerely encouraged in terms of where things are at and who’s on board and who’s leading the way as far as the writing of the script and the directing and all that. So that’s the extent of what I can tell you.”


Hollywood Potentially Headed for Another Strike, Insiders Fear

Hollywood might be headed for another strike as the IATSE sets unusually long bargaining schedule amidst lack of negotiations for major issues.

While Blade has been a fan-favorite in the comics since his debut all the way back in 1973’s Tomb of Dracula #10 by writer Marv Wolfman and artist Gene Colan, the character wouldn’t hit the silver screen until 1998’s Blade starring Wesley Snipes. The first film kicked off a trilogy of feature films including 2002’s Blade II and 2004’s Blade Trinity, as well as a television series starring Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones set after the events of the original trilogy. Blade: The Series ended after a single 13-episode season.
