Marvel Studios' 'Inhumans' Pulls Vanishing Act


Excitement is building among Marvel fans as the release of Captain America: Civil War draws closer, but one shakeup on Disney's release schedule has some members of the Merry Marvel Marching Society playing a depressing tune. TheWrap.com reports that Marvel's Inhumans, which already had its release date shifted from Nov. 2, 2018 to July 12, 2019, has disappeared from the studio's schedule entirely. The disappearance of the film has sparked speculation that the cinematic exploits of Black Bolt, Medusa and the rest of the denizens of Attilan have been put on hold indefinitely, never to emerge from the Terrigen Mists. 

But why? Perhaps the lukewarm ratings of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which has spent two seasons introducing the Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has something to do with the change. Maybe the disappearance of this film from the Marvel Studios' schedule is a sign that the struggling ABC series is drawing to a close. Or, equally likely, they just want to place their focus on other films in Phase Three in the MCU. Stay tuned, True Believers.
