Blumhouse’s Five Nights at Freddy’s movie has finally been released in the UK, with its official US release being Friday, October 27 in both theatres and on Peacock for those who want to stream it at home.
Since it’s now being played in UK cinemas, FNAF fans are starting to find out all the secrets that have been kept by the team behind the live-action adaptation based on the popular video game series with the same name.
Secrets such as which YouTubers were being kept as surprise cameos, with creators MatPat and Markiplier often being the two most talked about amongst the online FNAF fan community.
Is Markiplier In Blumhouse’s FNAF Movie?
Markiplier is not in Blumhouse’s live-action Five Nights at Freddy’s movie, despite the high amount of speculation from his fans that he had some sort of secret involvement with the production.
Markiplier recently went into depth as to why he couldn’t film anything for the movie, mostly due to scheduling conflicts between the FNAF flick and his own current project Iron Lung.
He said during a stream: “I was hoping that there would have been some schedules aligning, but I did want to say – straight up – I am not going to be in the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie.”
He added: “I know that’s crushing, and I know that’s disappointing, and I know there’s a lot of people that were really hoping that would be the case – but I wanted to say, unequivocally, that unfortunately, I’m not [in the movie].”
Since the movie is now playing here in the UK, CoveredGeekly can confirm that Markiplier is not in the movie – read our official review of the movie here.
Five Nights at Freddy’s opens everywhere and on Peacock on October 27.
