With the popularity of the television series, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” and how well it has fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it wasn’t super surprising when Marvel announced an Inhumans movie into the lineup. What IS SURPRISING is that Marvel has dropped the film from the MCU lineup. So it looks like it may be cancelled.
A while back, Kevin Feige told Collider that Marvel is still planning to make the film.
Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now. How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.
However, since his comment, they have cancelled the 2019 release date and completely unscheduled it from the MCU phase 3, it doesn’t look so good. When Marvel first made the Phase 3 announcement it was 2014 and a different time. Inhumans was going to release between the two halves of Avengers: Infinity War but since 2014 Marvel has added Spider-Man: Homecoming, then Captain Marvel was moved up a couple months and Inhumans was bumped back thanks to Ant-Man and The Wasp. Now, the film is off the schedule entirely.
