Loki Episode 4 aired on Disney Plus this past Wednesday and it really wowed Marvel fans, and also featured a nice nod to the upcoming Blade movie.
How, you ask? Well, let me explain.
During the episode, which was brilliant by the way, Owen Wilson’s Mobius is talking to his TVA colleague, Wunmi Mosaku’s Hunter B-15.
During their conversation, Morbius asks when it got so hard and then started to list off the sort of individuals they’ve stopped over the years.
He said: “You know, we’ve brought in Kree, Titans, vampires. Why is it the two orphan demigods are such a pain the ass?”
Notice what types of beings he mentioned after ‘Titans’.
Yep. He said “vampires”, thus confirming the presence of vampires in the MCU.
Who’s a famous vampire in the MCU? Well, I suppose technically he’s only half-vampire.
OK, I’m talking about Blade, and this is the first reference/easter egg relating to Blade and vampires.
This just makes me so excited to see this upcoming Blade movie.
Loki Episode referenced vampires and thus teased Blade
It was revealed a while back that Mahershala Ali had been cast as Blade and he will be appearing in an upcoming movie.
The film still doesn’t have officially a director at the moment.
It was supposed to already be shooting right about now, but the pandemic put a delay on things as far as the Blade movie’s concerned.
However, this reference to vampires in the Disney Plus Loki series is a good sign.
It makes vampires canon in the MCU before the Blade movie, which I and many others think is a really good thing.
The first four episodes of Loki are available to watch on Disney Plus right now.
