Clothes Make The Inhu(Man)

Over the weekend Comicbook.com posted some images from Marvel Television’s upcoming The Inhumans and while I’m glad that their teleporting dog Lockjaw will be making an appearance the costumes might be just a little bit subdued.

By which I mean, here’s a picture of Black Bolt, the head of the Inhuman Royal Family.

He’s a pretty distinctive-looking character, to be sure.  And I get that Marvel Television might not want to go with something so ‘cartoony,’ especially considering this is likely their highest profile production thus far.

But could they be going too conservative? Below is actor Anson Mount  (who’s playing Black Bolt) and while there’s no way of knowing based upon one picture if this is his final costume, if it is it harkens back to the what the X-Men wore fourteen years ago.

Which is frankly, a little bit odd and potentially presents a problem because the acceptance of the Marvel Cinematic Universe among the general public has show us that as long as you treat these characters faithfully (also shown by the reception of movies like Man Of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, though in not a good way) people will pay to see them.
Which is important when you take into account that the first two episodes will appear in theaters, which is intended as a hook to draw  viewers into watching the television series.

Though as I mentioned earlier, at least apparently they’re not skimping on the awesomeness that is Lockjaw, which gives me hope that perhaps this is not Black Bolt’s final costume.

 Is Marvel Studios Still Producing An Inhumans Movie?

Numerous sites have declared Marvel Studios’ movie based on the Inhumans as either dead or removed from the Phase Three production slate

Though there are reasons to suspect that the former isn’t true and a feature–while removed from Phase Three–is still very much alive. 

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter with Channing Dungey, ABC Entertainment Group president,  a interesting bit of information was revealed.

“ABC also hopes that Inhumans — which is not a spinoff of the network’s Agents of SHIELD and does not replace the planned feature film (italics mine).”

Whether or not The Inhumans remains in development at Marvel Studios remains to be seen, but the possibility that it does suddenly looks a little bit brighter.  

Now This Is How You Announce A Production Schedule (Not At A Lame Shareholder’s Meeting)!

Marvel Studios has just released their production slate up to the year 2020, and it goes without saying that unlike their Distinguished Competition they did so not at a shareholder’s meeting, but at a press event dedicated for that purpose.

Marvel, led my mastermind Kevin Feige, have announced a lot that will have fans of Marvel Studios salivating, such as movies based upon The Black Panther, The Inhumans and Thor: Ragnarok and many more!
