This news comes from Bradon Davis via ComicBook.com’s Phase Zero podcast.
We’ve been wondering what’s going on with the upcoming Blade movie for quite some time now.
It was revealed to be happening at 2019’s Comic-Con, and they also revealed that Mahershala Ali will be playing the character.
However, since then, the news on the movie has been very scarce – until now that is.
It’s been revealed by Brandon Davis, of ComicBook.com fame, that the film is set to begin production later this year.
But, what else do we know about the MCU’s Blade movie?
Well, it was revealed by Marvel President, Kevin Feige, that the only R-rated movie they’re working on for the MCU is Deadpool 3.

A lot of people were really annoyed about that because a Blade film kind of has to be R-rated.
I mean, it’s going to be about vampires, and vampires drink blood.
One of the things they specify in order to get a PG-13 rating is that there be a lack of blood.
I just cannot think of a Blade movie without blood, and if it’s PG-13 then it means that there can be only one ‘F-bomb’ in the film.
A Blade film with only one ‘F-bomb’! Impossible!
The other thing we know about this movie is that it’s being written by Stacy Osei-Kuffour.
We still don’t know who’s directing it. Although, we do have some interesting news for you guys on that front, but that’s for a later article.
