We still have plenty of unanswered questions with Marvel’s decision to move forward on an Inhumans TV series, especially if a movie is somehow still in the cards. On that note, one wonders about Vin Diesel’s many teasing references to playing lead Inhuman Black Bolt, something Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn certainly doubts to be the case now.

Only two or so of Marvel’s Netflix Defenders have costumes we expect to see during major events, to say nothing of some otherwise-memorable looks drafted during their individual series. Now, two Defenders and their closest allies have hit the street in new set photos, looking very much as we remember.
The state of Marvel’s ABC TV series got a shot in the arm with news that The Inhumans would arrive in 2017, though not necessarily replacing a movie in the MCU’s expanding slate. Certainly, a fancy new IMAX TV series bodes ill for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but sources say one will not necessarily replace the other.
Well, this is certainly unexpected. Marvel’s Inhumans has bounced around theatrical release dates enough that many wondered if Marvel might make the film at all, and now the project appears to have undergone TV-genesis. Yes, Marvel’s The Inhumans is now an ABC TV series premiering in fall 2017, debuting its first two episodes in IMAX theaters!
While Marvel and Sony are now playing in the same superhero sandbox, Marvel and Fox’s relationship remains a little less…cooperative. But there may be hope yet for an eventual collaboration of some kind, as the writers behind Deadpool have revealed that the two studios worked together to swap characters for their respective cinematic universes. You shouldn’t get your hopes up for the X-Men to appear in an Avengers film anytime soon, but it’s definitely optimistic news for Marvel fans.
It’s been some time since we’ve had any update on the status of Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger series over at Freeform, and perhaps with good reason. Reports confirm that the series has been pushed back to 2018, as the series’ official writer reworks the script.
Oh, Marvel people. The actors, the directors, the screenwriters, the producers. You just can’t get anything out of them these days, can you? Marvel Studios fiercely guards its secrets, and information about upcoming movies or TV shows only gets out when it’s supposed to, which is why asking these people any kinds of questions is often an exercise in futility. But, for those of us willing to read between the lines, sometimes you can get more information out of what someone won’t say, than what they will.
Generally whenever superhero series bring in other established heroes for a season, it’s to test the water for a spinoff. We’ve seen it with Flash from Arrow, Punisher from Daredevil, and potentially now Ghost Rider from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as well. Star Gabriel Luna is certainly up for the possibility, explaining there are “deals in place,” should the need arise.
X-Men isn’t the only superhero franchise with some major updates today — there’s also some interesting new info from Sony and Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Homecoming star Tom Holland has revealed the details of his contract with both studios, while Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has offered official confirmation of Michael Keaton’s villainous role in the new Spidey film.
By now, most of you have probably seen Doctor Strange, and if you’re a more dedicated Marvel fan, you might have even seen it twice or three times. In that case, you may have picked up on a few things others missed, like a potential easter egg connecting the Sorcerer Supreme to Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, perhaps? But if for whatever reason you haven’t yet made time for the latest MCU installment, this post contains minor (like, very minor) spoilers. Still with us?
