Marvel Gives Inhumans a Premiere and Production Start Date

Marvel fans rejoiced in 2016 over the news that the Inhumans were going to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But then the updates stopped. The Inhumans were pulled from its untitled spot atop the MCU movie logos. It didn’t look good for the proposed new addition to the Marvel family.

Originally, it seemed Marvel intended on releasing an Inhumans film between the two Infinity War films. But with Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel hitting the screen in 2018, the likelihood of that happening seemed to fade.

With the inclusion of the Inhumans into Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a well-executed down-grade was completed, one that would bolster the ranks of Marvels small-screen family. All the necessary ink seems to have dried and Inhumans will be debuting on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 on ABC.

Marvel will be releasing the first two episodes of Inhumans in IMAX theaters for two weeks starting on September 4, 2017. This IMAX presentation is part of a partnership deal between “Imax Corporation, Marvel and the ABC broadcast network.”

Filming of Inhumans is scheduled to be begin in March of 2017 in Los Angeles and Chicago.

By way of Heroic Hollywood via Season-Zero on Inhumans:

The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. “Marvel’s The Inhumans” will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.

There is always a risk in hedging all on your bets on a television show (i.e. cancellation) but the financial risk is far less. The decision to move Inhumans on television could give Marvel a chance to allow its roster of superheroes to grow in a way that is trickier on the silver screen.

Honestly, it seemed to take a very long time for fans to appreciate Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) the way they do now. Bringing Inhumans to television instead of film may be the right move in the long run. It was for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage.
