Most talk on Marvel Studios’ Phase 3 circles around confirmed films like Ant Man, and rumored prospects like Black Panther and Doctor Strange. Of course, that’s not the end of the Marvel catalog, and there are plenty of other characters left to explore, and recently, no less than the man who co-authored the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee himself, suggested one possibility: The Inhumans.
What ware The Inhumans? Well, clearly you’re not a real comic fan and have no place trolling a nerd news site. New to comics, you say? Well, The Inhumans are a group of highly evolved humans granted powers via the Terrigen Mist, essentially making them mutants, but they’re really distant cousins of the alien Kree Empire. The Inhumans first appeared in the pages of Fantastic Four, but the creations of Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby, strangely enough, aren’t covered by Marvel’s FF deal with 20th Century Fox, meaning that Marvel can make an Inhumans movie in-house.
One important person in particular thinks that an Inhumans movie is a great idea, and in a recent interview with TooFab, Lee talked about how it might actually happen:
[T]he people at Marvel are looking through our whole list of candidates and wondering which ones are we going to use now. 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.
That’s not really a definitive “yes, an Inhumans movie will happen,” but if next summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy turns out to be a success, then Marvel may look for more cosmic characters to bring to the screen on the bandwagon.
What do you Bastards think, wanna see an Inhumans movie?
