There are plenty of Marvel movie rumors flying around the internet about the next installments of Marvel’s Phase 2 and inevitable Phase 3, especially regarding Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man and James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. But one of the newest and strangest rumors isn’t about either of those movies, and it instead focuses on the lesser known Marvel teams called The Inhumans.
Basically, the Inhumans are the descendants of humans who were experimented on by an alien race called the Kree. The Kree created a branch of humanity that developed powerful superpowers, but were completely isolated from mankind. All of the stories about the Inhumans focus on their ruling family, Black Bolt, Medusa, Maximus the Mad, Gorgon, Triton, Karnak, Crystal and Lockjaw.
There were a few scarce Marvel movie rumors that the Inhumans would be getting their own film, and Kevin Feige mentioned that it was a possibility back in 2011. However, there has been no announcement from Marvel to confirm that an adaptation has been greenlit.
Interestingly, there have been new Marvel movie rumors about an Inhumans movie that suggests that the movie versions would be subtly set up for Marvel’s Phase 3, along with Ant-Man and Dr. Strange. Marvel’s own Matt Fraction will be drafting a new Inhumans comic book this year, and the buzz surrounding it claims that it will be a bit different from the traditional story, and inspired by HBO’s massive hit series, Game of Thrones. Each member of the old royal family will have their own noble house like House Maximus or House Medusa.
This would be a bit of a departure from the old version, almost as if they have the potential for a retcon of the team’s history. Of course, I won’t throw stones before I actually read the book. It is just a rumor right now, after all.
