Here’s your daily rumor to take with a heaping teaspoon of salt: a new report suggests that Marvel Studios may have canceled The Inhumans, the final film in their Phase 3 plan following Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. It’s not entirely implausible, but what makes this rumor a little difficult to swallow is the idea that Marvel Studios has shelved plans for the project due to ongoing conflicts with Marvel’s TV division.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' gets Inhuman-ly good in its most confident, ambitious premiere yet. Our full review, plus answers to Simmons' fate from tonight's premiere, "Laws of Nature"!
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may lose some of its finest in Season 3, but they won’t have smooth sailing while Coulson takes on the Inhumans with his Secret Warriors. A new synopsis for Season 3 reveals not only the hulking actor behind Marvel’s Lash, but also the new threat posed by Constance Zimmer, the Inhumans and others alike.
Anchorman director Adam McKay came pretty close to directing Ant-Man before Marvel brought Peyton Reed in to replace Edgar Wright. While McKay’s scheduling conflicts wouldn’t allow for the director to direct for the studio last year, he still lent a helping hand, working with Paul Rudd to spruce up the screenplay a bit. Apparently McKay made something of an impression on Marvel — rumor has it they’re eyeing him to direct an upcoming project.
It's kind of remarkable that Marvel Studios have already green-lit a sequel to 'Guardians of the Galaxy' -- a movie that, itself, doesn't come out for another few days. But this says less about Marvel's confidence that 'Guardians' will make money (and, let's not kid ourselves, it certainly will), but more about how the Guardians fit in with the larger story Marvel is trying to tell with the episodic nature of its films. And this episodic nature might just be what doomed Edgar Wright's version of 'Ant-Man' -- as opposed to it just being "too weird," which Marvel studio head Kevin Feige has denied.
