Marvel has been airing animated shorts featuring characters from their upcoming turn-based action game, ‘Midnight Sons.’ The shorts tell the story of how each member of the team came to join the Midnight Sons, while briefly highlighting their strengths and abilities. The latest story highlights one of the more popular characters in the ensemble, Blade.
The short is titled “The Daywalker” and features Blade in all his vampire-slaying glory, as he is recruited to the team. This short is the first taste of new Blade material that we’re getting ahead of the planned Blade reboot featuring Mahershala Ali. That project, which is the first official Blade solo project in the MCU, has stalled in production so this animated short will have to hold us all over until we finally get some movement on that front.
‘Midnight Sons’ is set to debut on PC and consoles, on December 2nd, 2022, and will feature a revolving cast of new and established Marvel characters as they link up to battle Lilith, the Mother of Demons. Check out the animated short below:
