So, there’s a couple of rumors floating around at the moment. One of these rumors is that Marvel Studios is “cancelling” their upcoming Inhumans film. Let’s go ahead and discuss said rumor real quick. When Marvel made their Phase Three update yesterday, the film was not mentioned anywhere in the release. The lack of mention has led to many speculating that something was up with the film and that it might not be happening. By that logic Spider-Man, Thor: Ragnarok and Doctor Strange are also cancelled. Right? Alright, let’s move on.
After this speculation began spreading came a report featuring some very shaky details about the matter. Following seeing said report I decided to reach out to a source of my own who commented on said rumor that he referred to as being “untrue”. They also added that the reason the film wasn’t mentioned in the press release was that with change in the line-up, the film’s release date is currently subject to change and a new date has not been set yet. Perhaps the studio has made the decision to move the film about Marvel’s Royal Family to their Phase Four slate? Its also highly likely that the film’s release date may not even change at all.
Drew McWeeny of HitFix has also chimed in after speaking to his own sources who tell him that the film division is “still planning to make the film” and that elements of the Inhumans universe “have been declared off-limits” to those over at Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a result of this. Here’s hoping we get something official from Marvel Studios very soon to kill this rumor that doesn’t add up whatsoever. Especially being that this has been a passion project that Kevin Feige has been speaking about since Phase One. So, until we get an official press release from Marvel Studios stating that they have indeed cancelled the project or you see Black Bolt pop up on ABC…
Inhumans is currently set to hit theaters on July 29, 2019.
