Yesterday, it was reported by Bleeding Cool that Marvel Studios may have scrapped their Inhumans movie due to a conflict between the film and TV divisions stemming from Kevin Feige and Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter’s recent split. That came after Feige decided that he would rather report directly to Disney instead of the frugal Perlmutter, and as hard as the report about Inhumans was to believe, it did make at least some sense.
Now, a number of other sites have weighed in on the initial report, and they counter it by saying thatInhumans is very much still on. HitFix, for example, reports that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is limited in what they can and can’t do with the Inhumans because Marvel Studios are still developing the movie – currently set for a 2019 release – while Birth.Movies.Death state that, “If Inhumans was canceled, no one would be more surprised than Marvel Studios.”

Both of these sites have been reliable in the past with this kind of thing, but they also scoffed at Bleeding Cool’s report a couple of years back that Fantastic Four was in trouble, and we all now know how that turned out.
With Inhumans so far away, this is unfortunately one of those news items that we’re just going to have to wait and see on until we hear otherwise. And chances are that won’t be until Kevin Feige hits the junkets for Captain America: Civil War next year, or the trades weigh in with something more solid.
