A growing number of fans have been saying that the planned “Inhumans” movie probably won’t make it to the cinemas because of the way it was pushed back to make room for other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films like “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp.” The film even disappeared altogether from Disney’s release calendar. Will Marvel give the movie another look in the future?
In an interview with /Film, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige addressed those questions by saying fans might see the “Inhumans” as part of their Phase 4 plans.
“I don’t know when. I think it’s happening on television. And I think as we get into Phase Four as I’ve always said, it could happen as a movie. I think it would be super cool.”
Well, strange choice of words for Feige. He “thinks it’s happening on television”? Of course, it is. The Inhumans storyline has been featured prominently on ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” since its second season.
The series has already introduced several Inhumans including Skye/Daisy Johnson aka Quake (Chloe Bennet), but these are all minor characters. When will Marvel introduce viewers to Black Bolt, Medusa, and the rest of the Inhuman Royal Family?
Eric Diaz of Nerdist pointed out that Feige’s choice of words shows the divide between Marvel Studios and Marvel TV. It should be noted that Feige is not exactly on good terms with Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter, the person in charge of Marvel TV.
Will fans finally see the “Inhumans” when Phase 3 ends with the fourth “Avengers” movie slated for May 3, 2019? Disney has already set aside three dates for 2020. That’s May 1, July 10, and Nov. 6. Will the film premiere on one of those dates? Will viewers finally see the Terrigen Mist and the Inhuman city of Attilan? Only time will tell.
