BLADE: A Possible Synopsis For The Movie Has Been Revealed On Leaked Production Listing

BLADE: A Possible Synopsis For The Movie Has Been Revealed On Leaked Production Listing

There's a huge amount of excitement surrounding the upcoming Blade movie starring Mahershala Ali, and we may now have a very early synopsis that teases what to expect from the Marvel Studios Phase 4 title.

A leaked production listing for Blade has found its way online, and there's a chance this gives us our first rough idea of what direction Marvel Studios plans to take the Daywalker in.

Synopses like this one are sometimes shared by the studio itself and can also be lifted off the internet by production companies, so there's no way of knowing for sure. Regardless, it makes for interesting reading and might offer a better idea of what to expect when writer Stacy Osei-Kuffour and director Bassam Tariq's movie starring Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali finally sees the light of day.

"Himself a half-human/half-vampire, 'Daywalker' Eric Brooks (Ali) has honed his abilities to hunt down the undead who have long terrorized mankind," it reads. "A human-vampire hybrid since his tragic birth, Blade has spent his long life seeking to rid the world of vampires like the one that killed his mother. Over the years, he has mastered his own style of fighting monsters of all kinds."

Eternals set the stage for Blade to team up with Dane Whitman/Black Knight, so it remains to be seen if we're getting a new origin story for the character. Picking up with him a little later in his vampire hunting career makes sense, though, and his history can easily be explored with an opening sequence of flashbacks (Marvel Studios has moved away from traditional origin stories in recent years).

We don't have a release date for Blade just yet, but expect to see it in theaters sometime in 2023.
