Marvel gearing up for Inhumans movie

Guardians of the Galaxy was Marvelís big gamble on whether or not they could sell a group of unknown characters in a unique world based on the studioís brand alone. They won that bet, and now itís given Marvel the confidence to move forward on another team of mostly unknown, strange characters: The Inhumans. As we reported back in March 2011, the studio was considering adapting the comic into a movie. In July 2012, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly that if either Guardians or The Inhumans became a movie, audiences could expect an ďX-Men-style ensemble, a la The Avengers.Ē In a broad sense, thatís true: A team of misfits and outsiders comes together to battle a larger foe; beyond that, I doubt many would compare Guardians to X-Men or The Avengers. But for over two years, there was no word on The Inhumans.

The other day, Vin Diesel dropped a hint about being part of The Inhumans, and it turns out he wasnít just blowing smoke. The studio is happy with the existing script by Joe Robert Cole, and now the next logical step is to take it out to filmmakers.

According to our sources, Marvel plans to handle The Inhumans in the same way they handled Guardians of the Galaxy. For those who donít know, the original draft of Guardians was written by Nicole Perlman, who was part of Marvelís writing program. That draft then went out to filmmakers. When James Gunn came on board, he added his flavor and details to the story, but the characters, story structure, and beats from Perlmanís draft remained in place. As Adam explained in his recent editorial, directors are brought on board to execute a specific vision.

Cole also came out of Marvelís writing program, and the studio is pleased with his script, so now theyíre presumably ready to take it out to filmmakers. We can also assume that since Guardians was a success, the studio is willing to bring on a director with a unique voice like Gunn. He didnít upend the Marvel formula, but his personality flows through the picture. He was in tune with a group of oddball outsiders, and that made him the best man for the job.

So whoís the best choice for The Inhumans? Briefly, the Inhumans were created by alien experiments on primitive homo-sapiens. The alien race behind the experiments, the Kree, abandoned their work and the Inhumans went on to form a society of their own, which is led by the king Black Bolt and his family Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, and the canine Lockjaw. For more on The Inhumans, read Marvelís wiki page.

Our sources tell us that this movie is part of Marvel not only expanding its list of properties, but actively building a multiple-film cosmic universe.

To be clear, we donít know the details about this script, and we donít know the directors the studio has on its wish list. What we know is that Marvel is ready to move forward on The Inhumans, and weíre hearing it will take one of the dates on their current schedule.

Marvel has balls. They could coast on well known characters, but no. They're pulling out lesser known cosmic characters because of how much they believe in their product. I only wish with them adding cosmic characters to the MCU that they had the rights to Silver Surfer and Galactus.

Also, Vin Diesel had posted this to his twitter. Black Bolt maybe?

I have no idea who these people are, but I trust Marvel Studios.

God, it just kills the DC fan in me to say that.

111 - Jessica Jones & Hunger Games Part 3 Part 2

Another week another this show we do. This week we're all about Marvel's new Netflix series Jessica Jones as well as the last Hunger Games movie. Plus Peter Jackson on the failures of The Hobbit, Wonder Woman, more Riddick stuff, Justice League Dark and Shrek for some reason.

They're like Guardians Of The Galaxy, but boring.

Re: Marvel gearing up for Inhumans movie

I'm not so sure this would work as well. I have no problem with them getting added on somehow but a movie about them.... Feels like Marvel is reaching with this one. Feel that way about Ant-Man too but thats supposed to be a comedy and that might work.

Motherfucking Black Bolt

Curious on how they would make him work, having a main character who really can't talk would be something new.

I was just about to make a thread for this, but since you beat me to it Let the marking begin!!

Dude you're going to LOVE the Inhumans. Think of them as a mix of Game of Thrones, Cosmic awareness, and the X-men. It's going to be awesome to see how Marvel handles themes of Royalty and heirarchy, betrayal, and family bonds, with a major serious backbone and plenty of substance.

There's also the fact that we're one step closer to seeing this

Spoiler for Blackbolt vs Thanos:

Go Jays Go!! #FYSMC

Credit to Soul Cat for this epic sig!

Thanos is only beaten because he allows himself to be, and he only allows himself to be beaten because, in spite of his ambition to attain ultimate power, he sub-consciously knows that he's not worthy of it.
