Marvel's Inhumans Movie May Move From 2019 Release
"I think it will shuffle off the current date."
Marvel Studios like to plan far in advance--the schedule of upcoming superhero movies usually stretches several years ahead. However, changes can occur along the way and as new movies are added some inevitably disappear from the line-up. It seems that Inhumans is one such casualty.
Inhumans was originally scheduled for a 2019 release, but this was before the standalone Spider-Man film and Ant-Man and The Wasp were added, not to mention the fact that Marvel are now exploring the story of the genetically-created superhero race on TV in Agents of SHIELD.
In an interview with Collider to promote Captain America: Civil War, Marvel boss Kevin Feige was asked about whether Inhumans would still happen.
"I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now," he confirmed. "How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.
"Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time."
However, when asked specifically about whether the fact that Inhuman characters now featured in TV's Agents of Shield meant the film would be scrapped entirely, Feige was firm in his answer: "No. It’s a question of when."
Although Feige's comments suggest the film may not be released in 2019, neither Marvel Studios nor Disney have officially confirmed a change in its planned release window yet.
The Inhumans were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in a 1965 issue of Fantastic Four. Led by hypersonically-voiced Black Bolt, their first self-titled comic line ran from 1975 to 1977. They have subsequently appeared in a variety of limited and ongoing series over the past four decades.
