With the Captain Marvel movie on the horizon, the Kree have a newfound importance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but fans won't have to wait even that long for one of Marvel's most significant cosmic cultures to get a nod.
Marvel's Inhumans director Roel Reiné tells ComicBook.com that fans can expect to see the Kree represented through Easter eggs in the upcoming ABC series.
"For me, also, I'm a big Marvel fan as well, so for me, I'm also seeing, 'How can I tie it in?'" director Roel Reiné says. "Remember, Inhumans are a specific thing, but they also go back to the Kree and the Kree has kind of a big history in the Marvel language, so I was kind of trying to put a lot of Easter eggs in the episode where you see the Kree language and artwork. So I'm trying to tie into that world."
The most prominent man of the Kree to show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far was Ronan, the fanatical villain of Guardians of the Galaxy. However, the Kree have also appeared in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.
In Marvel's Inhumans, after the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.
