After adding some additional details to Marvel’s and ABC’s recent announcement of next year’s Inhumans television series on ABC, an eight-episode series that will debut its first two episodes in IMAX theatres next September, The Hollywood Reporter made some slightly amended claims in an updated report today. Despite formerly claiming that the entire Inhumans series would be filmed with IMAX cameras, it turns out that this may only be half-true, as only the sequences set on the moon, a regular home of the Inhumans Royal Family in Marvel Comics lore, will be filmed in IMAX. Everything else will be done on regular cameras, at least past the first two episodes, which will still be shot entirely with IMAX cameras to get the most out of their two-week limited theatrical engagement.
Perhaps the biggest and most surprising nugget of news out of this report however is that the Inhumans television series apparently won’t actually replace Marvel Studios’ long-in-development Inhumans movie after all. Despite prior speculation from numerous outlets that the Inhumans television series would take the place of the Inhumans movie, THR has now clarified that Marvel Studios has not cancelled the Inhumans movie, and still intends to release it at some point later. The Inhumans movie remains without a release date at present, after being pulled from its former June 12th, 2019 date some time ago. That date, or another after it, has yet to be filled by another Marvel Studios project, with Marvel Studios still having yet to decide what their third big screen offering for 2019 will ultimately be.
Marvel has not currently provided comment on the status of the Inhumans movie, with the most recent update being a claim by Marvel Studios boss, Kevin Feige back last May, where Feige stressed that the Inhumans movie is not cancelled, addressing some recent rumours that it had been. Should the movie still be made in the end, it’s currently unknown how the Inhumans movie may or may not be affected by next year’s TV series, particularly since the Inhumans movie is also said to revolve around the Inhumans Royal Family, as with the TV series.
You can currently keep tabs on Inhuman-related developments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on ABC’s current MCU-set series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which returns from hiatus next Tuesday, November 29th, in its current fourth season’s usual timeslot of 10:00-11:00 P.M. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on CTV here in Canada, and on ABC in the U.S. Allegedly, the Inhumans TV series and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will have no direct connection or effect on each other, with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s renewal prospects for a potential Season Five not being influenced one way or the other by the Inhumans series.
