Soon after Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was confirmed, people turned their attention to what could be in store for the sequel and what new characters they might be seeing in the sequel. One character who has been getting a lot of mention is Nova – the Earth-born hero – who fights for Xander and the planets Nova Corps and is also a major warrior who fights against the Kree and the Skulls, albeit, in various incarnations. Furthermore there was also talk about Peter Quill‘s father showing up in the second installment.
There’s been internet buzz about Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige’s remarks concerning the lack of female superheroes headlining their own films. It’s no secret that ladies in the action realm have had their ups and downs. For every one Ellen Ripley there’s a ‘Catwoman,’ an ‘Elektra,’ and a ‘Barb Wire.’ One could argue that the industry as a whole just down right doesn’t know what to do with ladies in power. But when considering the counter-argument, that with every ‘BloodRayne’ debacle, there are ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,’ ‘Underworld’ and ‘Hunger Games’ success stories, the issue gets kinda confusing. If Marvel were to place bets on a female-led superhero film, where would it fit in their grand cinematic plan? And what character would be the best candidate? I think Katee Sackhoff might be trying to tell us something. (more…)
Marvel‘s might movie machine is just ramping up and up, with an amazing number of movies in development over the next few years!
In a surprising move, it appears that Marvel is planning a movie based on The Inhumans, a race of early humans that were experimented on by aliens called the Kree and given amazing powers.
Aliens who were put on Earth as sleeper cell aliens to eventually call back their race to take over the planet. Ultimately, the group of aliens fully assimilates and don’t want to cause war.
The Inhumans are a race of superbeings who live on the dark side of the Moon; they were created by the alien Kree millions of years ago in experiments on primitive humans.
The main characters of The Inhumans are the king, Black Bolt (who cannot speak, for his voice is a destructive force), his wife Medusa (prehensile hair), Karnak (who can analyze and determine people’s weaknesses) and Gorgon (generates seismic shockwaves by stamping his feet).
No release date was given, as it has yet to be confirmed, but based on the success of The Avengers and the Skrulls, this could usher in a whole new world (see what I did there?) of Marvel franchises.
What do you think of this decision?
