Marvel’s Inhumans Coming to ABC in Fall of 2017

attends the 25th IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards co-sponsored by FIJI Water on November 30, 2015 in New York City.

When Marvel’s Inhumans the movie was cancelled during development, many fans were very disappointed. But fear not! Marvel announced in an interesting turn of events that they are now planning to keep the property but instead as a television series much like “Agents of SHIELD.”

In addition to changing the MCU Phase 4 movie into a new television series, Marvel announced earlier last week that the television series “Marvel’s Inhumans” will premiere on IMAX screens in Sept. 2017 before moving to ABC in it’s regular time slot. The first two episodes of the series will be shown on IMAX screens for two weeks before moving to ABC making this the first time a live-action series debuts this way.

“Inhumans” was originally created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. The series will follow the group of Inhumans, or super-humans with distinct and abnormal powers. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has already introduced the idea of Inhumans beginning in season 2. Whether the two shows overlap haven’t been revealed but it seems extremely likely. ABC currently airs the other popular MCU series, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..” 

“This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience,” said co-chairman of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney/ABC Television Group Ben Sherwood in a statement. “It highlights Disney|ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.”

IMAX CEO Rich Gelfond also added,

“This first-of-its-kind multi-platform production, distribution and marketing agreement brings together Marvel Television’s unique brand of entertainment, ABC’s unparalleled audience and IMAX’s brand and global fanboy demographic. It also takes our decades-long relationship with The Walt Disney Company to a whole new level, jointly breaking new ground in the industry. We are confident our exhibition partners will be excited to work with us on this innovative launch of a series across the IMAX network.”

Dan Buckley, President of Marvel Television, Publishing & Brand, added,

“We’re happy to see this unique deal come together, working with our partners.  In an ever-changing world of distribution and consumption, it’s very exciting to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that takes us to the forefront of this evolution.”

‘Inhumans’ Movie Officially Pulled from Marvel Schedule


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.
