On Friday, Disney/Marvel Studios announced that it was pushing the release dates back for two of their upcoming films. One film that was scheduled to open on October 7, 2022, was moved almost a full year to October 6, 2023. The other movie was only pushed back a week (November 10, 2023).
The film that was pushed back a year is more than likely Blade starring Mahershala Ali. Originally the MCU reboot was supposed to start filming in September, putting it on track for an October 2022 release. However, earlier this month, it was reported that filming had been pushed to July 2022 to allow writer Stacy Osei-Kuffour more time to work on the script. This is why Marvel shifted the release a whole year to October 2023.
If the October 6, 2023 slot is, in fact, Blade, then that means by the time it comes out, it will have been more than four years since it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019.
As for the other film, there’s no telling what it could be. It more than likely is something that has yet to be announced. I’d imagine that will find out what the film is in the coming months or hopefully by the end of the year.
