Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Will Help Launch Marvel’s Inhumans



At this point in time, Marvel’s visualization of Inhumans is still a ways away, with the superhero flick on course for a release in November 2018. Still, that doesn’t mean that the studio will keep the eclectic heroes on the shelf for the next three years; rather, according to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg, Marvel wants to seed the origins of the characters before their appearance in the MCU.

Speaking with Comic Book Resource, the actor touched upon the symbiotic relationship between the show and the overarching universe, which will only continue to evolve as the studio expands its proverbial canvas.

“Inhumans represents a different chapter…At least in the comics, the Inhumans, they’re a race of people who’ve been transformed. They’re mutants, more or less. I’ve always loved that part of the comics. They’re people who have evolved differently, and that generates a lot of fear. Some people want to annihilate them. Some people want to lock them up. Some people want to register them. Some of them become superheroes. Some of them become monsters. I find that particularly germane. Are we going to accept the people who are different, or are we going to try to wipe them out?

“I think the first thing we’re going to deal with when we come back is (Coulson) led everyone to this place with the writings. He found this submerged, several-thousand-year-old alien city. It turned out to be like an incubating factory that turned his own most beloved protégée — his surrogate daughter — into something else and got one of his team members killed. That’s not going to be easy on his new team, which has some people who he knows and trusts and some people who are much newer to him.”

Those of you who have kept up with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hitherto will know that Marvel is already beginning to plant the origin story of the Inhumans, what with the inclusion of the Terragenesis — an experiment that essentially bestows the titular crew with their abilities — not to mention Chloe Bennet’s character, Skye. Couple this with Jeremy Renner’s rumored guest appearance as Hawkeye and you have a universe that is slowly becoming a single shared entity. A feat that will only continue as time progresses.

Inhumans will arrive in theaters on November 2, 2018. In the meantime, you can get acquainted with some of the characters that will appear in Marvel’s upcoming film with the gallery below:
