Jeph Loeb Explains Why ‘Inhumans’ Became A TV Show Instead Of A Film

Marvel The Inhumans
Initially scheduled to be part of Marvel Studios’ phase 3 line-up as a feature film, Marvel Television and ABC Network later announced that Inhumans would be coming to their network in the fall of 2017. In an interview with That Hashtag Show, Marvel TV executive producer Jeph Loeb explained why plans to bring the Inhumans to big screen transitioned to bringing them to television screens.

Loeb revealed the reason behind the decision to develop Inhumans as a series instead of a film:

“Well, as you know Marvel is one big giant company, and this was a property that was in movie division, and when they looked at their schedule and realized what they wanted to be doing, [Inhumans] was something that was gonna push very far out. So we started having a conversation with them about, “well, maybe this is something that would work as a television series.” And that worked out really well.”

Time will tell if Inhumans is suited to television, although negative reviews noting the poor production values suggest that the project may have benefited from the budget of studio feature.

“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 currently screening in IMAX theaters.

Marvel’s Inhumans will then premiere on ABC at 8:00 pm ET on September 29

Agents of SHIELD

This week marked the season finale of the fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Suffice to say, this has been a stellar season for the show. Probably one of Marvel’s best seasons on television (depending on how you feel about Legion). Season 4 gave us 3 distinct story arcs: Ghost Rider, LMD, and Agents of Hydra, and all of them were perfect. There was the right amount of drama, actions, story, and intrigue that held us over from week to week. Despite having a later timeslot this season, the ratings (thanks to loyal fans) held strong and the show was renewed for a 5th season in the 2017-2018 season for ABC. Even though the show is now in the “Friday Night Death Slot,” ABC President Channing Dungey is not worried as he feels the show has a strong enough fanbase to still do a great job, which it why Inhumans and Once Upon a Time will also share Friday nights with them.

As stated before, the season finale was an exceptional close to an explosive season. You can check out our review of the episode as well as our pointing out of all the MCU Easter Eggs for that episode. As the season finale ended with a great cliffhanger, there are so many places for the 5th season to go. Here are a few things in the upcoming season to look forward to. Click Next to take a look…
