Marvel’s Inhumans is so far not proving to be a box office success on par with its bigger Marvel Cinematic Universe brethren.
According to Deadline, Inhumans four-day total is back down to an estimated $1.5 million in 393 auditoriums. Worldwide it has grossed approximately $2.6 million. These numbers sound low when viewed as a Marvel production, but this is to be expected from a television episode shown in theaters: IMAX released two Game of Thrones episodes in January and managed to pull in almost $2 million in a week.
The lower than expected numbers probably have something to do with the rather negative critical and audience response so far. Fans are finding themselves unimpressed with the CGI, finding it not up to the usual standards of big Marvel movies. Furthermore, many fans are deciding the steep price of admission at IMAX theaters isn’t worth paying for when the pilot will be shown on ABC in a few weeks.
Inhumans was originally planned as a feature film but was taken off the schedule of upcoming Marvel features last year. It was then announced that the Royal Family would be coming instead to the small screen with the two-part premiere showing in a limited IMAX engagement.
“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.”
Marvel’s Inhumans stars Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Iwan Rhoen, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores and Ellen Woglomas.
The first two episodes are now screening in IMAX theaters for two weeks.
Marvel’s Inhumans will then premiere on ABC at 8:00 pm ET on September 29.
10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See
After three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.
Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.
Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.
Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.
So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!
