Marvel Studios Modeling An INHUMANS Movie After GAME OF THRONES?

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.

Inhumans Marvel Studios Phase 3

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.

That would be a very interesting take. I'd like to see it.
toco89 - 4/2/2013, 4:06 PM
Why even consider the Xmen? Just do the inhumans.

Xmen are doing just fine so far despite the ups and downs.
marvel72 - 4/2/2013, 4:07 PM
hmmmmmm interesting,it would be great to see the inhumans get movie love.
Jollem - 4/2/2013, 4:08 PM
how 'bout they model it after the inhumans?
TheGambitFreak - 4/2/2013, 4:08 PM
Wouldn't mind it.
TheGambitFreak - 4/2/2013, 4:09 PM
But yes, Ant-Man, Strange, etc. Marvel needs to do a low-level, lower budget film. Daredevil would be perfect.
DRock59 - 4/2/2013, 4:20 PM
Don't make an inhumans movie, they're just a poor man's x-men. I love marvel studios flicks, but that is not one I'd pay to see.
DRock59 - 4/2/2013, 4:22 PM
And marvel reacquired the rights to kingpin when Daredevil reverted back to Marvel. Don't you remember hearing months ago about the silver surfer/galactus trade deal that marvel was trying to get fox to take?
Volthoom - 4/2/2013, 4:22 PM
Please, please let this happen
MarkJulian - 4/2/2013, 4:28 PM
For the 1,000th time, Kingpin was on loan to Fox from Sony. Kingpin went back to Sony, not Marvel.
thorhulk77 - 4/2/2013, 4:28 PM
Yeah no Inhumans movie. I like them and all, but Phase 3 should be saved for better movies.
InfiniteMonkey - 4/2/2013, 4:28 PM
Marvel is on the right path.
Keeping things in complete focus and keeping to their plan.

Other studious should be envious.

Go Inhumans!
crazycharliemma - 4/2/2013, 4:29 PM
I want an Iron Fist movie first but yea it be cool
JeffreyVeregge - 4/2/2013, 4:29 PM
I love the Inhumans, I would rather see them branch out & do a TV series.
aRandomSinisterClone - 4/2/2013, 4:29 PM
i know nothing of them, but visually their all weak looking. maybe im wrong knowing so little about them

Inhumans isn't anything like X-Men. :P Inhumans are cosmic, and Black Bolt is one of the most incredible characters written into comics; therefore, I freaking want this movie! Give me Lockjaw, Gorgon, Titan, Karnak, Crystal, Medusa, and Black Bolt with Maximus as the villain! :D
SageMode - 4/2/2013, 4:33 PM
If this turns out to be true and THE INHUMANS happens to be apart of Phase 3 of MCU and is a great movie, bring it.
FOOM - 4/2/2013, 4:33 PM
Another sketchy rumor but I would love this to actually happen. A CGI series with a look of Kirby's style would even be better.
HAILHYDRA - 4/2/2013, 4:34 PM
@levitikuz Daredevil doesn't fit into the MCU if you ask me. He's more of the vigilante crimefighter type. The only way I think it would make sense to include him would be in a New Avengers storyline. Or a Spider-Man/Daredevil team up movie would be cool but I don't think Sony will acquire the rights. On the other hand, Black Panther could fit perfectly. Idk what they're waiting for. Black Panther's costume would be easy to put on the big screen.
shamo - 4/2/2013, 4:37 PM
marvel being unoriginal? suprise, suprise.
TheSisko - 4/2/2013, 4:37 PM
I would rather see Daredevil with a TV show, the character is perfect for network TV a lawyer by day vigilante by night. A TV gold mine as far as story telling on a tv budget.

I love the Inhumans, Game of Thornes is okay but just not my cup of tea. I really hope this film happens. Say what you . want about FOX but I love that the lesser known properties are getting love.

KeefNCookies - 4/2/2013, 4:43 PM

I've enjoyed Inhumans comics quite a bit, but a movie on them is lame... to copy Game Of Thrones is just weak.

Major Freakin' Fail
ricko8687 - 4/2/2013, 4:47 PM
OMG let it happen the Inhumans I remember reading the FF in my youth and the Inhumans first appeared. Their backstory was so rich, they became an instant favorite for me let this happen
Tainted87 - 4/2/2013, 4:53 PM
Sounds good. I'm down for it.
DRock59 - 4/2/2013, 4:55 PM
Not to question Julian, but I googled "Daredevil movie rights" and multiple link deadlines say "Daredevil reverts back to Marvel'
marvel72 - 4/2/2013, 4:57 PM
the war of kings cosmic event was more like game of thrones.
DRock59 - 4/2/2013, 4:57 PM
What's the difference between an inhuman and a mutant? Both of them developed their powers from evolution. Is an inhuman just an evolved earlier mutant?
95 - 4/2/2013, 5:08 PM
"Marvel Studios' X-Men"?! Very interesting.
DRock59 - 4/2/2013, 5:08 PM
@Mark My bad! Sony has the rights to Kingpin not DD.
marvel54 - 4/2/2013, 5:32 PM
blackandyellow black panther should be made first
HULK2099 - 4/2/2013, 6:07 PM
how about model the entire space universe after game of thrones
superotherside - 4/2/2013, 6:11 PM
I would love an Inhumans movie.
THIS - 4/2/2013, 6:18 PM
Phase 3
Captain America 3
Dr. Strange
The Incredible Hulk 2
Black Panther/War Machine
Avengers 3

With a Daredevil-vs-Punisher tv show along with it. What y'all think?
SpideyQuad - 4/2/2013, 6:30 PM
the X-Men and the in humans are similar in individuals have unique individual powers or capabilities and some are disfigured from the change.

The main difference being the X-Men gain their powers from natural evolution, where the in humans breathe in the mist from mutating crystals at a predetermined age. The in humans have no idea what powers or mutation will occur during this process. It is completely up to chance.

I hope that sheds a little light.

I think a lot of people that are speculating on phase 3 are failing to take in the consideration what happens if GOtG is a major success.
