It seems that fans may see Mahershala Ali’s Blade sooner than expected. According to The Cosmic Circus, the character will appear in the Werewolf by Night Halloween special.
The iconic vampire hunter will reportedly make an appearance in the Halloween special set to introduce Gael García Bernal as Jack Russell, aka the Werewolf by Night. While only appearing together in the comics twice, the characters share a number of key elements that would explain Blade’s presence.
While both characters are involved in the supernatural side of Marvel Comics, they share a deep connection to the Darkhold, given the book is responsible for creating vampires and werewolves. Additionally, both have a history with Dracula in the comics, so this familiar foe could serve as a connection for them.
It seems likely that given Blade’s appearance at the end of Eternals, where he recruited Kit Harington’s Black Knight, we could see Ali’s vampire hunter take in the Werewolf by Night. It has been speculated that Blade will set up the Midnight Sons, so this new rumor would align with that theory. And while it is only a rumor the character will appear in the special, Cosmic Circus has had a number of credible reports in the past, adding credence to this report.
