Marvel’s The Inhumans TV series made clear at the moment of its announcement that the new IMAX-shot story wouldn’t use Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a basis for spinoff, though it remains an open question if the two series might share any mythology in common. At the very least, we know the new Marvel series won’t utilize the same VFX as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., perhaps creating a different look.

In the wake of the upcoming IvX event, Marvel is planning another push of Inhumans titles, with two titles, Royals and Black Bolt, announced earlier this week. Now Marvel has unveiled the third title in the line; a new incarnation of Secret Warriors by Matthew Rosenberg and Javier Garrón that sees veteran Warrior Daisy Johnson, aka Quake, recruiting a team of young Inhumans, including Ms. Marvel and Moon Girl.
Black Bolt is going to space prison, and writer Saladin Ahmed is joining artist Christian Ward to show how he gets out in a new solo comic focusing on the Inhumans' silent leader.
We've previously learned that Royals will focus on the Inhuman Royal Family journeying through space, and apparently this book focuses on Black Bolt being separated from them and imprisoned on an alien world.
Marvel has released precious few details of its upcoming Inhumans TV series, beyond IMAX plans for the 2017 premiere. Now, a new report clarifies just how much of the series will use IMAX technology, and why some of the early hours will require a grander scale.
The past few years has seen Marvel trying to fit the square peg of the Inhumans into the round hole of the rest of the Marvel Universe, and while the comics have often been good, the behind-the-scenes push has seemed forced. However, next year sees a resumed focus on the familiar Inhuman royal family as they head back out to space in new ongoing title Royals, and Al Ewing and Jonboy Meyers will be the ones to take them there.
Marvel Television recently announced plans for an Inhumans TV series, launching in late 2017 on ABC and centered on the Inhuman Royal Family that was dreamed up by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in the mid-1960s. The Inhumans are a superpowered offshoot of humanity created by interfering aliens, ruled over by the House of Agon. The members of that Royal Family have yet to appear onscreen, despite the recurring presence of Inhumans on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.
We've put together an introductory guide to the House of Agon's core members, including the king and queen, and their big dog too, so that new fans can get a sense of who's who. For those old fans who know the characters only too well, we've also voted on the best and worst of them, and placed them in order.
This week, as I occasionally do, I’m shifting focus to a project that’s actually happening. After years of talk about a movie, the announcement has come that the Inhumans are getting a television series on ABC, with a premiere in IMAX theaters for some reason. The show, to the relief of fans, will focus on the Inhuman Royal Family, aka the original Inhuman characters created by Jack Kirby. And to the surprise of nobody, Vin Diesel, long-rumored for the role of Black Bolt, is probably not on board.
So what does an Inhumans TV show look like?
Well, this is certainly unexpected. Marvel’s Inhumans has bounced around theatrical release dates enough that many wondered if Marvel might make the film at all, and now the project appears to have undergone TV-genesis. Yes, Marvel’s The Inhumans is now an ABC TV series premiering in fall 2017, debuting its first two episodes in IMAX theaters!
Marvel’s announcement of an Inhumans movie was a welcome surprise when they rolled out their prospective slate of superhero films holding us prisoner for the next century. Then, the Inhumans movie was taken off the roster completely after being pushed back to make room for Disney’s Indiana Jones reboot. Then, Marvel president Kevin Feige said that, yes, it was still happening, just not in Phase 3. We hadn’t heard a ton of news about the movie since then, but Feige is now still saying that he thinks an Inhumans movie would be “super cool.”
Even before it was announced we all knew it was coming, and now the climactic battle between mutants and inhumans is about to erupt in Inhumans vs X-Men #1 by Charles Soule, Jeff Lemire, and Leinil Yu. Check out a preview.
