When Marvel announced Phase 3 of it’s Cinematic Universe, one of the films front and center was The Inhumans. As time went on though, and more projects got announced, the film kept getting pushed back. Eventually, The Inhumans disappeared from the schedule altogether. Seeing an adaptation of the Inhuman Royal family on screen started to seem less and less likely.
Well the project is back on now — sort of. Instead of a feature film, The Inhumans will be coming to the small screen, as a television series on ABC in the fall of 2017. It’s a sensible move, as (while the central Inhumans have yet to appear), the concept has been long established on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD for quite some time. As there’s some division in the management of the MCU between Television and Film, it means coordinating Inhuman characters between the two series will become much easier.
For those of you disappointed that you won’t be able to see The Inhumans in a theater, there’s still some good news out there. The first two episodes of the show will be filmed with IMAX digital cameras, and they will get a limited theatrical IMAX release in late Summer 2017 (just prior to their debut on television).
I’m kind of excited. Are you excited?
