Conflicting Reports Surface On Future Of Marvel's Inhumans Movie
Marvel may or may not be moving forward with its Inhumans movie. After a report surfaced earlier this week that Inhumans had been cancelled, Hitfix published an article retorting that rumor that said the movie was still moving forward as planned.
Yesterday, Bleeding Cool dropped a bombshell when it published a report that Marvel Studios had cancelled its planned Inhumans movie when it reshuffled its upcoming movie slate earlier this week. The movie was a supposed casualty between internal drama occurring between the Kevin Feige run Marvel Studios and Marvel's television arm, which still reports to Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter. Marvel's television division allegedly had pushed hard for the Inhumans film, as Agents of SHIELD has spent the last two seasons introducing the secret race of superhumans to viewers. As Feige no longer works directly under Perlmutter, the report claimed that cancelled the film as he no longer had to accommodate Marvel's television division.
However, HitFix published an article Friday evening disputing Bleeding Cool's report, claiming that its sources stated that Marvel Studios still planned to make the Inhumans movie. HitFix noted that several key Inhumans characters (presumably Black Bolt and the rest of the Inhumans royal family) were still off-limits to use im Agents of SHIELD.
Inhumans was one of several movies impacted by the announcement that Marvel Studios and Sony were collaborating on a new Spider-Man film, to be set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Inhumans was originally scheduled for November 2018, but the film was pushed back to July 2019 as a result of the upcoming Spider-Man film. Marvel originally moved its Captain Marvel movie to Inhumans' November 2018 release date, but announced this week that Captain Marvel would also get pushed to 2019 to make room for the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to this summer's Ant-Man movie.
As of now, Marvel Studios still has Inhumans on its movie schedule, with a planned release date of July 12, 2019. To see the Marvel Studios' full movie schedule, check out ComicBook.com's Upcoming Release Schedule.
