It’s been a long, meandering and slightly confusing road for Marvel’s planned Inhumans movie hitherto. Announced during the company’s release date blowout all those years ago, many have feared that Marvel had quietly cancelled the ensemble feature early on in development.
That’s simply not the case, and last time we reported on the project, head honcho Kevin Feige stressed that the Inhumans adaptation was still toiling away. Fast forward six months and the song remains the same; still no tangible sign of progress (read: casting/director announcements) from Marvel brass, and the uncertainty from fans continues to swirl.
However, while chatting to /Film, Feige appeared overly confident, claiming that he believes Inhumans “will happen for sure,” perhaps during Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I think Inhumans will happen for sure. I don’t know when. I think it’s happening on television. And I think as we get into Phase 4 as I’ve always said, it could happen as a movie. I think it would be super cool.
Those of you up-to-date on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will know that the Inhumans have cropped up on ABC’s spinoff series before, though Kevin Feige is referring more to the chances of that fabled feature grinding into motion. If Phase 4 does indeed host the Unspoken, Black Bolt and Co., there’s a slim chance Marvel has already reserved one of those three 2020 release dates (May 1, July 10, and November 6) for the gestating project. Let the speculation commence!
At least for now, Marvel’s Inhumans movie remains firmly on the shelf, after being pulled from Disney’s release slate altogether. But what are your thoughts on the fate of the dogged adaptation? Let us know by commenting below.
