After a disapointing performance for first two episodes of Marvel’s Inhumans at the box office and reports that ABC has concerns about the quality of the remaining episodes, to say that the upcoming series could be in trouble may be an understatement. While fans may have hope that the show can be saved, it appears one man has his doubts: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 director James Gunn.
The filmmaker was asked if he could save the critically panned series during a Q&A session on Facebook, to which Gunn jokingly replied:
“It does not look like there is much saving left for the Inhumans.”
Of course, Gunn could be referring to the fact that his current work on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and other Marvel Cosmic Universe projects is keeping him much too busy to step in and save Inhumans.
Do you still have hope that Marvel’s Inhumans will be good or has the negative buzz surrounded the series removed all doubt that it will be a disaster? Share your thoughts below!
“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.
Marvel’s Inhumans will premiere on ABC at 8:00 pm ET on September 29.

Cosmic Heroes We Want To See In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy…
It’s official: James Gunn has confirmed that that he will be returning to both write and direct the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which is just phenomenal news. Gunn has created something really special with these films. He took third-tier (at best) comic book characters that most fans didn’t yet know they needed to love and turned their story into not one, but two blockbuster movies that are major hits, both critically (Vol. 2 is getting mostly positive buzz on social media following press screenings) and financially (the sequel’s currently tracking at about $150 million for its opening weekend).
In his Facebook post, Gunn stated that Guardians Vol. 3 will “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” He also made a brief mention of “some of the other forthcoming heroes” that could be appearing in the series. With these things in mind, we thought it would be a wonderful idea to explore some of the cosmic Marvel characters that fans might like to see in the third installment.
Before we jump in, a couple caveats. While it would surely be a lot of fun to see some of the Earthbound MCU characters mixing it up with the team in space, this list is only going to feature cosmic-based Marvel characters. The film will hit theaters after the Guardians’ introduction to Tony and Cap and the gang in Avengers: Infinity War, so we may still see that happen anyway. Also, I’m sure there are plenty of fantastic cosmic villains that would be great fits to antagonize the team in the third film, but we’re only focusing on the good guys in this list. Also, as amazing as it would be to see Silver Surfer or Galactus in the MCU, we’re not including anyone that Marvel doesn’t currently own the rights to, so don’t expect to see Agent Venom or Kitty Pryde or any of the other non-MCU characters that have served on the team in the comics on this list either. Also, it should be noted that I have not yet seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so if any of these characters do appear, my apologies for the wasted entry.
Now, without further adieu, here are the 10 cosmic Marvel heroes we want to see in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
