We may finally know when Marvel's upcoming Blade reboot is going to arrive in theaters. This particular project was a surprise reveal last summer during Marvel Studios' massive Phase 4 presentation at San Diego Comic-Con. Few updates have been provided on the movie since it was announced, but it seems that the studio may have secured a rather appropriate release date for the daywalker's return to the silver screen.
Recently, Disney did quite a bit of shuffling around with its 2020/2021 release calendar. This provided new release dates for all of the announced Phase 4 movies, as well as some new dates for the already announced Phase 5 titles. Marvel updated its calendar through 2022 and they have a previously revealed date set aside on October 7, 2022, for a currently untitled movie. Charles Murphy, who has been surprisingly accurate with Marvel scoops in the past, took to Twitter to state that Blade will indeed be the title filling that particular slot. If this is indeed true, it would make sense for a few reasons.
For one, while we know other projects such as reboots of the X-Men and Fantastic Four are on the way, they are in the earlier stages and don't have any cast attached. Blade, meanwhile, has Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali on board to play the Marvel Comics character. The other important element here is that Blade will almost definitely resemble a horror movie, or at least more so than any other MCU entry has up to this point, what with vampires and whatnot being involved. Bearing that in mind, releasing the movie in October would make sense, as Marvel and Disney could capitalize on the Halloween season.
There are a couple of other titles, most notably Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Ant-Man 3 that could slot into that specific release date as well. Both of these movies are happening and seem to be at similar stages of the development process, give or take. Whatever appears in October 2022, it's important to note that we will now have four MCU movies releasing that year. Thor: Love and Thunder was pushed back to February 18, 2022, with Black Panther 2 previously announced for May 6, 2020. Disney also recently dated Captain Marvel 2 for July 8, 2022. That will make it a massive year for Marvel fans.
Blade previously appeared on the big screen in a trilogy of movies that starred Wesley Snipes as the character. Before the reboot was announced, Wesley Snipes revealed that he was working on two potential projects with Marvel, but it seems the studio decided to go in a different direction. Even so, Snipes has been supportive of the project publically. No director is attached to Blade at this time. We'll be sure to keep you posted as any further details on the project are made available. This story originated at @_CharlesMurphy on Twitter who has a track record for breaking stories. The topper art comes from iMizurii on Reddit.
A concept artist on The Mandalorian still refers to the Child as Baby Yoda. Lucasfilm and Disney have confirmed dozens of times that his official name, for the time being, is the Child. He is not an infant version of the little green Jedi Master, though he looks just like him. In the Star Wars timeline, the real Yoda is dead at the time of The Mandalorian. There is still a ton of mystery surrounding the Child and the species that he is.
The Mandalorian concept artist Doug Chiang posted some concept art from the series on social media. The image is of Din Djarin as he holds the Child in his hand. Chiang posted the image, along with a caption that reads, 'Time for a Mando and Baby Yoda sketch!' We all know he's the Child, but Baby Yoda just fits so much better, especially since we know next to nothing about the little green dude.
The Mandalorian season 2 should debut in the fall. Disney+ and Lucasfilm have confirmed that the show is supposed to come out in October, but that could all change at any moment, due to the current state of world affairs. The entertainment business has been stalled as we all wait for this to pass. Regardless, season 2 should give us a bit more insight into who and what Baby Yoda is, or at least tease more of his backstory. We do know that Moff Gideon will be trying to get his hands on him, which could prove to be massive problem for Din Djarin.
A lot of Star Wars fans have been curious about the original Yoda's species for decades. It's never been explained before and some fans want to leave it that way. It's unclear how far Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni will go into the Child's history, but there are still a lot of people who want to learn more about the original Yoda in The Mandalorian. It will be interesting to see how much information they will be coming up with. Regardless, if it goes far enough, it could anger a lot of Star Wars fans, which seems inevitable at this point.
For now, we'll just have to wait and see what season 2 of The Mandalorian brings. We have yet to see any footage from the upcoming season, though that makes sense. If Star Wars Celebration ends up still happening at the end of August, we'll probably see the first footage there, or around that time. Disney and Lucasfilm have not yet commented on whether or not the annual celebration will happen this year, though San Diego Comic-Con seems to be going ahead, at least as of this writing. Things could change at any minute now. You can check out The Mandalorian concept art below, thanks to Doug Chiang's Instagram account.
