Stan Lee is not actively involved with Marvel’s movie universe. He sometimes even gets things wrong (see: Silver Surfer movie). However, he isn’t completely in the dark and is slightly kept in the loop. Recently, Lee said that the Inhumans movie that has been rumored for a few years now is still in the works.
“The people at Marvel are looking through our whole list of candidates and wondering which ones are we going to use now,” Lee said. “They are going to do the Black Panther. They are going to use Doctor Strange. They are going to do Ant-Man. They are going to do the Guardians of the Galaxy. And they’ll probably do the Inhumans.”
The Inhumans movie will include a group of beings originally from earth who were transformed as a society into super humans thanks to Kree technology. They developed their own society that is a structured dictatorship where everyone has a role and no one can ever rise above that status in their life, no matter how powerful.
Their King is Black Bolt and the Inhumans super team involves his group of confidants. Those members include his Queen Madussa, a giant dog named Lockjaw, and others.
The Inhumans have had a lot of contact with The Fantastic Four in the comics, but since that’s a Fox property, it won’t happen in the Inhumans movie. However, Black Bolt is also part of a special secret group called the Illuminati, along with names like Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Reed Richards and Professor X.
With the Kree possibly in the future thanks to Guardians of the Galaxy opening up the universe as well as Thanos being an evil dud from outer space, The Inhumans movie could easily fit into the Marvel world. Plus, I think that they are very similar in story structure to something like Game of Thrones, which could be a plus thanks to the popularity of that show.
Plus, Marvel is showcasing The Inhumans in the comics later this year in the Inhumanity storyline. This could give them a perfect chance to showcase them in the movie world.
