Marvel's 'Inhumans' Movie May Get Further Delayed

The studio president Kevin Feige said ABC's take on the characters of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D' did not affect the decision.

AceShowbiz - "Inhumans" is not Marvel Studios' current priority. The pic, about a race of hybrid alien/human superbeings who live in their own world, was set for theatrical release on July 2, 2019, but it looks like the movie won't stick to the schedule.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that there were other projects that were squeezed inside their line-up in the next few years, including the 2017 untitled new Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland. When "Inhumans" was first announced in October 2014, the studio was yet to strike a deal with Sony Pictures for the web-slinging superhero franchise.

"Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added 'Spider-Man', which was a big joyous coup for us. We added 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an 'Indiana Jones' film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it's on right now," Feige said in an interview with Collider.

Feige insisted that "Inhumans" movie would happen eventually but he didn't know when. "How far down it shuffles, I'm not sure yet," he said. Time-wise, the project has been overtaken by ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." which explored the story of the Inhumans. Asked whether it affected the movie project, Feige said, "No. It's a question of when."

Back in October 2015, rumors spread that Marvel might cancel the project after all because of the clash between Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutter. But not long after, "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Vin Diesel stated that he was up for a character that would use his presence on screen. Many speculated that he might portray Black Bolt a.k.a. Blackagar Boltago, leader of the Inhumans.
