Marvel first announced the release dates of their Phase 3 films back in the fall of 2014. Marvel’s Inhumans was then slated to premier in between Avengers: Infinity War’s two parts, as well as Marvel’s Captain Marvel, however the studio has done a lot of shifting and rearranging since then, and it seems that Marvel’s Inhumans might possibly be postponed to a later date.
Since 2014, a lot has changed: Marvel and Sony struck a deal to co-produce a Spider-Man solo film premiering in 2017. Captain Marvel’s released date was moved around a bit. The major success of Ant-Man also resulted in the studio squeezing in Ant-Man and the Wasp into the Phase 3 lineup.
As Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dives deeper into Inhuman lore, mythology, and history, rumors began to swirl about whether or not the studio decided to scrap the idea of a feature film all together. Collider spoke with Kevin Feige – head of Marvel Studios – recently, and he said that Marvel’s Inhumans is still going to happen.
In the interview, Feige said,
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.
But it’s not a matter of “they’re already doing that on TV, we’re not doing it?”
No, It’s a question of when.
