COMIC REEL: Rumor Possibly Places "Inhumans" In Jeopardy; "Captain Marvel" Writer Gives Script Update


io9 has a "totally insane" rumor, originated over on Bleeding Cool, that states that the "Inhumans" film is in danger of getting canceled. The reason? "Inhumans" was Ike Perlmutter's baby and, as he is no longer in control of Marvel Studios films, Kevin Feige wants to nix the movie. The Inhumans also play a big role in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," which is Marvel TV, which is still under Perlmutter's purview. Basically, the rumor posits that Feige's Marvel Studios and Perlmutter's Marvel TV could be in conflict, with the Inhumans in the middle.

An update to the article, which includes numerous other rumors from numerous other insider-y sites, includes info that contradicts the initial rumor. Sources possibly on the Marvel Studios side say the film is still in the works, and that Marvel TV has characters they can't use because they've been marked for movies -- so if Medusa or Black Bolt show up on ABC, odds are that's a sign the movie's done for, but that hasn't come close to happening yet. Birth Movies Death also has heard that "Ant-Man" script doctor and co-writer Adam McKay has been repeatedly approached to helm "Inhumans," and it's an offer he's rumored to be considering.

But anyway, if "Inhumans" gets going, Vin Diesel is set on playing a non-talking member of the Royal Family. "We've heard a lot of talk about Marvel wanting to have me play a character that doesn't have my voice," Diesel told io9. "So my voice is used for Groot and my presence is used for the other character." He's of course hinting that that character would be the silent Black Bolt.


While speaking with ComicBook.com at NYCC, Marvel head of TV Jeph Loeb talked about "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" potential tie-in with "Captain America: Civil War."

"The reality is, we know these worlds are connected, we know these things are happening," Loeb said. "Certainly, the kinds of themes we're talking about, like the responsibility of people that have abilities, and who is best to determine what happens to those people, is something we're very concerned about on not just this show but all our shows. It's something you'll see as something you should feel about what's going on. But that's the nature of Marvel, it's not a new concept for us, but it's a concept we're just starting to address in this world."

Collider spoke with "Captain Marvel" co-screenwriter Meg LeFauve about the film and finding Carol Danvers' weakness.

"We have not started yet. We just got the phone call to come over to Marvel. But for me personally, the wonderful thing about her and the challenge of her is going to be that she's a female superhero," said LeFauve. "And that is awesome because she's so powerful, and how hard is that going to be because she's so powerful? We don't want the Superman curse. 'What's her vulnerability?' is what we have to figure out."
