RUMOR: Marvel May Be Considering Scrapping IRON FIST; Update On INHUMANS Plans

Wait, what?! There was no mention of Iron Fist at the New York Comic Con this weekend, and if a new report is to be believed, the Netflix series is in serious jeopardy of NEVER happening! We also have an interesting update on the current status of that Inhumans movie...

Bleeding Cool - the site that first reported on those Fantastic Four behind the scenes troubles, something which was scoffed at by a number of other sites at the time - have expanded on their recent report about Inhumans with a troubling new update. Their film and comic book sources have apparently reached out to them about their claims, with one telling them that Inhumans was only announced as part of Phase 3 on the isistence of CEO Isaac Perlmutter. In return, Kevin Feige was able to give the green light to his own pet projects, Black Panther and Captain Marvel, but now that he's reporting directly to Disney, the plan is apparently to "de-prioritise it. Let it fall down the soldiers until, eventually, it’s said that they could never find the right people for it." 

Here's where things get really worrying though. Iron Fist, a series we've already heard Marvel and Netflix are struggling to get right, is apparently being hit by a lot of Marvel Studios interference, as "they still do have a say and a signoff into how the show appear and the word is the show may be killed with such procedural notes." I'm really not sure what to make of this, but it's easy to imagine that there's some truth to what is being reported here. The site has been very pro-Perlmutter in recent months though, so it's hard to say where exactly their sources are coming from. Regardless, they add that around fifty Marvel Studios staffers in some way affiliated with the Marvel CEO and East Coast division could be laid off in the near future, so if that happens soon, start getting worried about Inhumans and Iron Fist!
