Update 10/05/2021 12:30 PM EST / 10 PM IST: Marvel India and Disney India official social media accounts (FB, Insta, Twitter) have deleted the posts mentioning October 7, 2022 release date. However, they have not sent any modified press release yet.
Marvel Studios India and Disney have revealed their Indian release calendar for the year 2022 and the remaining of 2021. The list also includes Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor Love and Thunder, Black Panther Wakanda Forever, The Marvels, Disney Encanto, Pixar's Turning Red, Pixar's Lightyear.
Blade, directed by Bassam Tariq, has yet to be officially filmed. However, the announcement does not appear to be a typo, therefore the film could have been shot in secret, with no awareness of the media. For many years, Mahershala Ali had been rumored to fill this part, which Disney officially confirmed in 2019.
