Viewers still wondering about the future of Marvel's struggling Inhumans may have gotten an unintentional clue from one of the stars of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Ming-Na Wen, who plays no-nonsense Agent Melinda May, was asked over the weekend at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest San Jose about the possibility of a crossover between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans. "I think that show got--" Na replied before stopping herself. She then completed her thought with a laugh, saying, "Maybe I can't multitask."
It doesn't take a secret agent to deduce that Wen's initial comment ended with "canceled." Inhumans, which premiered its first two episodes in IMAX theaters before its broadcast debut on ABC, received a negative response from viewers and critics alike. The season's eight episodes aired to lower and lower ratings, to the point that it was widely assumed that Inhumans had been effectively, if unofficially, canceled.
Fans of the Marvel series were initially eager to see Black Bolt, Medusa and Lockjaw grace the screen in a movie-quality production, but ever since the first trailer for the series was released, the series was facing an avalanche of criticism. Even after the first season of Inhumans concluded, Marvel and ABC have kept quiet about its future, prompting many to take interpret that silence as sealing the show's fate. Now, with Wen's brief but incomplete comment, we can add more fuel to the fire.
