The last season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spent a lot of time establishing the Inhumans as a vital part of the MCU (or at least, the MTU), and although season 4 will see the introduction of Ghost Rider, it doesn’t sound like the Terrigen Mist-afflicted folk are going to be taking a back seat – on the contrary, actually, as we could well be meeting some of their Royal Family.
In an new interview with io9, producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen confirmed that the Inhumans will still play a big role on the show moving forward, and that they now have a bit more freedom when it comes to which characters they can adapt.
“We’ve told a couple of seasons of stories but now we do have some more freedom. So when we return to focusing on Inhumans, we’ll be able to do a little bit more.” That freedom, Whedon and Tancharoen said, included being able to use some of the classic Inhumans.”
With Marvel’s Inhumans movie still planned for a 2018 release, it’s highly unlikely we’ll be seeing Black Bolt and Medusa on the small screen – but are the likes of Karnak, Gorgon and Triton a possibility? At the very least, expect one or two characters you’ll recognize from the early comic series.
The fourth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. kicks of on September 20th – will you be tuning in?
