As Blade continues to round up its casting, a new rumor has emerged that says Mahershala Ali’s Daywalker may show up first in another project later this year. According to the Cosmic Circus, the vampire hunter is slated to appear in the upcoming Werewolf By Night special that’s slated to be released on Disney+ this fall.
While Ali has yet to make a physical appearance in the MCU, his voice can be heard during the post-credit scene for Eternals. Considering its ties to the supernatural world and the fact that Vampire By Night is expected to appear, a Blade appearance would make sense.
If the report does turn out to be true, then the question fans will now be asking is, will Werewolf By Night (played by Gael Garcia Bernal) appear in Blade’s film? If he is, then with Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman (Black Knight) also suspected to appear, it’s looking more likely that it’s turning into a team up film for the Midnight Sons. In the comics, Moon Knight is also known to be affiliated with the group so it could be possible that by the end of his series it’s hinted that he could appear as well.
Filming for Werewolf By Night is rumored to begin in the coming weeks. Michael Giacchino, who’s known more for being a composer, has reportedly been tapped to direct it.
As for Blade, while it still doesn’t have a release date, it’s slated to begin filming in July.
