Marvel first announced an Inhumans movie as part of their Phase 3 plan back in 2014, but a subsequent release delay and a lack of updates on the project seemed to signal a bit of trouble — an assumption that proved correct when the studio recently pulled Inhumans from its Phase 3 schedule, leaving us to speculate as to whether the film had simply been delayed again or canceled entirely. According to Kevin Feige, it’s the former, as Marvel is still plotting an Inhumans film…eventually.
Last week, when Marvel’s Kevin Feige revealed that Inhumans would be delayed (again) in order to avoid conflict with Disney’s release of Indiana Jones 5, it was sort of assumed that the film would probably disappear from Phase 3 altogether. That assumption has proven correct, as the studio has officially removed Inhumans from their 2019 schedule entirely, leaving us with a couple of questions about what Marvel will do next.
In October of 2014 at a Marvel event in Los Angeles, Kevin Feige and Marvel announced a November 2, 2018 for Inhumans, their latest superhero team. But a funny thing happens when you announce a movie’s release date four years in advance? Things...
It’s well-documented at this point that Marvel movies take no cue from the multiple TV tie-ins, most always the other way around, though Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3's worldwide introduction of Marvel’s Inhumans seemed at least potentially worth a mention. Not so, apparently, as Captain America: Civil War’s writers had no awareness of the TV branch in crafting Cap’s international adventure.
As debuted after Agent Carter Season 2 finale “Hollywood Ending,” the latest look at Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Season 3 return shows plenty more Inhuman action, including Matthew Willig’s Lash (using previous footage, though his return is certainly still a possibility). We also see more of the Secret Warriors in action, as well as a new threat aligned with Ward’s new Marvel identity.
It’s hard to believe Agent Carter is already approaching the end of Season 2 (and hopefully just the season), but already Coulson and the modern Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are bursting at the seams to return. Our first 2016 trailer bounces back with new additions to the Secret Warriors team, along with Ward’s creepy return and other Inhumans.
Much as we’ve adored the first few weeks of Agent Carter Season 2, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans are eager to pick up on the 2015 cliffhanger that saw Grant Ward manifesting yet another Inhuman threat. Say no more, S.H.I.E.L.D. fans, as the first 2016 synopsis has arrived, leading the team to bounce back with a pursuit of even more super-powered Secret Warriors!
Poor Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. First, Joss Whedon flat-out admits that the TV series get “leftovers” from their cinematic brethren, and now S.H.I.E.L.D.’s one major Marvel tie-in may not get the attention it deserves either. According to Clark Gregg, none of Agents’ work with the Inhumans of Marvel lore may end up tying into the 2019 movie version after all.
Tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ closed out 2015 with two shocking (and pretty brutal) deaths, but did “Maveth” completely pull a Glenn? And are we any closer to figuring out the identity of our mysteriously apocalyptic Inhuman? Find out in our full review!
Tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ kicked off the beginning of the end with a hugely surprising death, but is Ward’s villainy in desperate need of “Closure”? And are we any closer to this mysteriously apocalyptic Inhuman? Find out in our full review!
