To the joy (and chagrin) of many Marvel fans, the Inhumans have had a major uprising in terms of comic presence over the last few years. There are Inhumans on the Avengers, the Inhumans were a major part of not one but two major Marvel events in Infinity and IVX, and they have multiple comics going right now. At New York Comic Con, a one-shot comic was revealed called Judgement Day, and it’ll serve as a “capstone” of all the current arcs going on for the Inhumans.
So let’s recap, shall we? A couple years back, Marvel unveiled their slate for Phase 3 films, one of them was the Inhumans. But then, during Agents of Shield (a TV series connected to the MCU), the Inhumans were brought in, including the reveal of major Inhuman Daisy Johnson, aka Quake. This made many wonder whether the Inhuman movie would happen. Turns out, it wouldn’t or at least, not in the way many expected. It would instead be a limited series that would debut in IMAX before coming to ABC as a miniseries, one that would actually push Agents of Shield’s fifth season to midseason.
The Inhumans are a very unique set of beings in the Marvel Universe. They posses powers based on both their genes and a unique substance called Terrigen. What’s more, their leader is one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe because he can emit sound waves so powerful that a single whisper can shatter stone, thus, he’s basically mute until he needs to use his powers. Which…makes for an interesting dilemma with the upcoming Inhumans TV series, because Black Bolt needs to communicate to give the character weight…yet he can’t talk. So, what’s the team to do?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is constantly expanding, what started with movies, soon grew to include TV shows, and then Netflix series, and now, an IMAX event via Inhumans. Now, technically there are already Inhumans in the MCU via the recent events of Agents of Shield, but this new event which will lead into a TV show will focus on the Inhuman Royal Family of Black Bolt, Medusa, Maximus, and more.
ABC and Marvel have followed up yesterday’s reveal of what the Inhumans look like with what they sound like. This short 30-second teaser trailer doesn’t contain anything more than some quotes and a logo, but I suppose they’re still working on the special effects. That hair is tricky, I heard.
Yesterday Hulu released their first image of the new Marvel show they have under production, Runaways. Not about to be upstaged, TV network ABC said “hey, we’ve got our own new Marvel show in production too! So take THIS!” and released the first image for Inhumans, now confirmed to begin airing this fall.
Marvel Studios has officially revealed the latest star of the upcoming TV show, Marvel’s Inhumans. Graceland star Serinda Swan has been cast in the role of the Queen of Attilan, Medusa.
The Marvel Inhumans TV series is a bit of an odd duck. It’s going to debut in theaters, and either will or won’t tie into the Inhumans arc that Agents of Shield has. It’s weird, but, many are excited. And today, a casting call for the main characters of the series was apparently leaked, and TheHashTagShow broke them down. We have them below, along with our notes about who we think they are.
It’s official. The Inhumans will no longer be getting a movie. Marvel Entertainment and ABC Television Group announced today that The Inhumans, which was previously in development as a Marvel Studios theatrical feature, will instead be getting an ongoing TV series for ABC. However, there is a bit of a catch here. The first two episodes are also set to receive a special exclusive premiere in IMAX theaters for a two-week period.
In the aftermath of the Secret Wars story, much has changed. One of the key changes though is that the X-Men are once again on the edge of extinction. This time though, it’s because of the Terrigen Mists, which are spreading throughout the world, sterilizing, and sometimes poisoning, any X-Men it touches.
It’s a curious time for the Inhumans movie. While initially a part of Marvel’s “Phase 3”, several things have caused many to wonder if the movie will come out at all. Including have its release date pushed back twice, and the inclusion of Inhumasn on Marvel’s Agents Of Shield. Now, Deadline is reporting that not only is the movie getting delayed again, but it now doesn’t have a release date.
Marvel Comics has officially announced a new book starring the Inhumans which will debut with the revamped Marvel Universe later this fall. The new relaunched Inhumans series, Uncanny Inhumans, will feature the creative team of writer Charles Soule and artist Steve McNiven, the same team behind the Death of Wolverine story.
