Marvel just dropped one of the biggest news this season! ABC has ordered a new series titled ‘Marvel’s The Inhumans’ which will be centred around the Royal Family – Black Bolt, Medusa, Triton, Karnak, Gorgon and the lovable Lockjaw. Furthermore, they have partnered with IMAX to release the first two episodes of this upcoming series in IMAX theatres next summer.
The Inhumans have already made their MCU debut in the past two seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. centered around Skye/Daisy’s past and the Secret Warriors storyline. While some fans of the show has constantly wondered if the Royal Family would ever make their debut on the ABC show, others have maintained their stance that Attilan and the Royal Family should debut in a movie. When Feige said that there will definitely be an Inhumans movie, I’m pretty sure that fans never had expected this – which to be honest is slightly disappointing.
In order for a show like this to be look great, it requires a huge budget to establish the characters. From costumes to special effects, it would have been better should they delayed the movie but delivered a stunning addition to the cinematic universe. The Inhumans have been around since 1965 and deserves justice which if AOS is any indication, ABC doesn’t really handle superhero shows all too well.
While it is unclear if Marvel Studios would still go forward with The Inhumans movie, this announcement does greatly reduce the likelihood of them being immortalised on the big screen. Regardless, it would be wise to save any judgement before actually watching the show.
Marvel’s The Inhumans will hit IMAX Theatres next summer while the series will debut in the fall.
