Popular late night host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel recently commented on the failure of Marvel’s Inhumans.
To no surprise, Marvels’ Inhumans was canceled at ABC recently. This was destined to happen since the show premiered, for some reason, on IMAX screens. The series never really gained any traction with fans and the big question up until it got the ax was when it was finally going to get canned. Marvel has had success with almost every single one of its properties, especially recently with Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther. The swing and a miss from Marvel’s TV wing definitely left it open to ridicule from some comedians best including the famed Jimmy Kimmel.

Kimmel didn’t hold back on any of the recent activity at his network. He discussed other canceled projects and the loss of Shonda Rhimes. But his best one of the night was definitely at the expense of the flawed Marvel series. The Inhumans story, which was once scheduled to be a full motion picture, may never get to see the light of day again and will forever stay secluded within a moon fortress, which fans would agree is where it belongs.
Marvel’s Inhumans starred Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran, and Ellen Woglom as Louise.
If you are one of the few that enjoyed Marvel’s Inhumans, you can relive the series on Hulu, iTunes, Vudu, and ABC.com.
10 DC Comics Stories That Could Top ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
Now that general audiences have seen Avengers: Infinity War, nothing will ever be the same for the DC films. Avengers: Infinity War feels more like an event starring everyone’s favorite characters than a traditional movie, and it will be hard for Warner Bros. to replicate that feeling of excitement for their comic book movies. DC’s counter-part to Avengers, Justice League, didn’t achieve nearly the same level of success and now the studio has to think of a new plan to get their cinematic universe chugging along.
Fortunately, DC Comics has a huge repertoire of epic, personal stories to explore for cinematic potential. While Thanos may be more destructive than the villains in some of these stories, that doesn’t mean these adventures don’t result in real, destructive changes in the DC Universe. After forcing DC’s finest heroes to fight Doomsday and Steppenwolf, two of the publisher’s strongest villains, on the big screen so early in the cinematic universe’s history, WB may want to step back and focus on personal stories. Even if none of these plotlines make it to the big screen, and if they do they would all require some major tweaking, they are all excellent examples of DC’s finest work.
