In even more exciting comic book related movie news, Marvel still plans to push out an official, stand alone Inhumans film in 2019.
Fans of both Marvel and the Inhumans were introduced to the Black Bolt-helmed group of superhumans in the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., when Skye – a.k.a Daisy Johnson b.k.a Quake entered a chamber holding the Diviner in the secret underground city built by the Kree.
In the second half of season 2, we’re introduced to Daisy’s Inhumans family whom live at a remote village known as Afterlife.
Despite a rumor that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige “pulled the plug” on the film due to a “war between the TV and film divisions” – a source within the film division revealed otherwise, and “is still planning to make the film, and there are certain elements of the ‘Inhumans’ universe that have been declared off-limits to the ‘SHIELD’ people as a result.”
The latter quote is pretty unfortunate, given the fact that cross-overs and easter-egg references are a fun tidbit that are well known in the MCU. This may also mean that we won’t see Black Bolt show up in AoS and Chloe Bennet, who portrays Daisy Johnson in AoS won’t reach the big screen, a notion that sort of annoys me.
Suffice to say, the film isn’t due out until 2019, and as of this writing, no director has taken up the film. Anything can happen in the next four years. Inhumans will appear in Marvel Studio’s third phase, behind Captain America: Civil War (2016), Doctor Strange (2016), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), an untitled Spiderman film (2017), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Black Panther (2018), Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 (2018), Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), Captain Marvel (2018) and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 (2019).
