Marvel Studios is, at the time of writing, spinning an awful lot of plates, what with the likes of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War all incubating in various stages of development.
The Inhumans will be the latest superhero-themed project to join the fold, and we now have confirmation that Marvel and ABC’s spinoff series is expected to lens in Hawaii through spring. First reported by Reel News Hawaii (via CBM), the outlet claims Marvel’s overhauled project – one that was originally pitched as a full-blown feature film under the MCU – will shoot “several episodes” from March until June. No further details were disclosed, but is it possible that those episodes will go on to become the IMAX installments of The Inhumans? Time will tell.

That’s a lot sooner than expected, but following the appointment of Black Sails director Roel Reine – he’ll helm the opening two episodes of The Inhumans – Marvel’s project is fast beginning to take shape. Boasting cinema standard visuals, the live-action superhero series is on course to light up IMAX theaters across the U.S. over Labor Day Weekend – i.e. early September. From that point on, a further six episodes of The Inhumans will begin rolling out via ABC, when Iron Fist‘s Scott Buck will take point as series showrunner. It may be a fairly huge departure from the original plan, but Vin Diesel is still holding out hope for an eventual feature film.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on The Inhumans as Marvel’s spinoff series inches closer to release. Much like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before it, ABC will house Black Bolt and Co. this fall, and you can share your early hopes for the new show down below.
