Did Disney Just Rip The Heart Of Out Of The Planned ‘Inhumans’ Movie?

After a week of rumors, Disney confirmed that Inhumans has been removed from its schedule release date in 2019. The film was scheduled for release on July 12, 2019, but is now left unscheduled in a sort of limbo as Disney and Marvel continue to add films to the slate according to Deadline:

Marvel has made a lot of additions to its release calendar, i.e. Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7, 2017 and Ant-Man And The Wasp on July 6, 2018, which has pushed Inhumans to the back burner. In an interview with Collider, Marvel honcho Kevin Feige pointed to the fact that Disney/Lucasfilm’s next Indiana Jones film is scheduled for the weekend following Inhumans, July 19.

Most reports note that the film is not entirely dead and does have a script from Black Panther scribe Joe Robert Cole, but you have to admit that things do look bad for the title. The initial announcement came in 2014, long before Spider-Man was added to the Marvel mix and before the dissolution of the creative committee. As Kevin Feige noted in his discussion with Collider, these new additions to Marvel’s schedule bode well and Inhumans could likely join Guardians 3 as one of the first post-Infinity War Marvel films.

Then again, there is Marvel’s film division moving away from its television side. Inhumans are a big part of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD at the moment, possibly making the idea of a film less of a priority. It’s not the first time the movie has been on the bubble.

For what it’s worth, there’s no reason for Marvel NOT to produce a film on the Inhumans. They can do pretty much whatever they want at this point, at least until the superhero exhaustion finally sets in with the public.
