inhumans movie canceled

UPDATE: HitFix has spoken to what they call “an unimpeachable source” on this matter, and they’re saying this rumor is not true at all. Marvel Studios is still planning to make the film. And to clear this matter up even more, they’re saying that there are certain elements of The Inhumans universe that are off limits to Agents of SHIELD, therefore any clash between Marvel films and television has been exaggerated. Our original story follows.

While Captain America and Iron Man prepare to duke it out in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, a long-brewing cold war behind the scenes at Marvel may have just started to heat up. According to a new rumor spreading across the internet like a blast of Terrigen Mist, Marvel Studios has removed the Inhumans movie from their (freshly updated) schedule. Originally scheduled for July 12, 2019, it was supposed to close out the studio’s ambitious “Phase 3” slate of films But now? Who knows.

Was the Inhumans movie canceled? Let’s go into detail after the jump.

Marvel Is Having Inhumans Kill Off X-Men in the Comics

Extraordinary X-Men 1 (header)

Over the past year, Marvel Studios has plucked the Inhumans from relative obscurity to give them prime placement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only are they getting their own feature film in 2019, they’re the subject of a major ongoing arc on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Essentially, they serve as a stand-in for the X-Men, since 20th Century Fox still holds the rights to Marvel’s mutant roster.

But replacing the X-Men with Inhumans in the movies and TV shows is one thing; now, that offscreen rivalry appears to be spilling over into the comics. Previews of the upcoming Extraordinary X-Men #1 tease a storyline in which the Inhumans’ expansion is literally killing the X-Men. More about the Inhumans killing X-Men after the jump. Read More »

Adam McKay marvel

For a few moments last year, Adam McKay almost directed Ant-Man. At least, that’s how the situation seemed to be developing. After Edgar Wright left the project, star Paul Rudd called his friend McKay to work on the film. The pair worked together on the script and McKay was considered to helm the project, too. Ultimately, that didn’t happen, and Peyton Reed came on board.

According to a new rumor though, McKay must have left a big impression on Marvel. Rumor has it he’s now in line to direct a new Marvel movie, something he’s been vocal about wanting. Which movie? We don’t know know yet but you know we’ll speculate below. Read More »
