Marvel Studios Modeling An INHUMANS Movie After GAME OF THRONES?
This one's a rumor but it's the kind of rumor you hope turns out to be true. A new report says a new Marvel Comics series based on The Inhumans is on the way and that it will inform a Marvel Studios film adaptation.
Here's an intriguing rumor on the Marvel Studios cosmic front. Bleeding Cool has info on an upcoming Marvel NOW! comic book series for The Inhumans. And just as the new Guardians of the Galaxy comic book series from Brian Michael Bendis has elements that will reportedly be in the film, i.e. Tony Stark heading into space to join the team at the end of Iron Man 3; Bleeding Cool reckons that something similar will happen within the confines of The Inhumans comic book. The book is described as being modeled after HBO's Game of Thrones with a House of Medusa, House of Maximus and other noble Houses centered around the Inhuman Royal Family (just like the various Houses in Game of Thrones). The book will be written by Matt Fraction and it's said that for all intents and purposes, if a film happens, The Inhumans will be Marvel Studios' X-Men. Keep this in the rumor bin for now but this news can only please fans of Game of Thrones and Marvel.
Previously, The Inhumans first appeared on the Marvel Studios list of possible films back in 2011 with the discovery of the a logline which reads - "The Inhumans are aliens who were put on Earth as sleeper cell agents 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." A few months later, Kevin Feige went on record in Entertainment Weekly to state that if an Inhumans film happens it would be as 'an X-Men style ensemble a la The Avengers.' Since that statement, Marvel has gone on to announce The Guardians of the Galaxy for Phase Two which lead many to believe that The Inhumans were no longer a possibility. But perhaps The Inhumans will join Ant-Man and Doctor Strange for Marvel's Phase Three?
Is Marvel Working On An Inhumans Movie Behind The Scenes?
The Inhumans are steeped in Marvel lore, first appearing back in the publisher's early days in the year 1965. The Inhumans became 'Uncanny' at the same time as the X-Men in October 1975. History has shown which of the two uncanny teams became the most popular. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, The Inhumans started out as humans but were experimented upon by the alien Kree over a millennium ago to be superpowered 'Inhuman' soldiers for their intergalactic war with the Skrulls. They make their home on the dark side of the moon and are typically involved with the galactic adventures of the Fantastic Four and to a lesser extent, The Guardians of the Galaxy. Their leader, Black Bolt, plays a significant role in the events of Planet Hulk and World War Hulk as a member of the Illuminati.
