When Guardians of the Galaxy was announced at Comic-Con a few years back, many had considered the film to be a huge gamble. But the marketing team has done an excellent job getting Marvel fans excited over a property that was relatively unknown. Even before the film was released, Marvel had the balls to announce that there would be a sequel. But everything paid off in the end, with Guardians of the Galaxy being one of the biggest hits of August, in fact it broke box office records.
Now Marvel is ready to roll the dice once more with an even more unfamiliar property called The Inhumans. There have been plenty of teases that have led up to this. But this is the first time we are hearing of reports that a script has been turned in. Hit the jump to learn more.
An Inhumans movie started to get fired up after Vin Diesel posted a interestingly cryptic Facebook update on his page:
Vin and Marvel… you all made it happen!
I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I’m Inhuman… Haha.
While Diesel is having plenty of fun seeing us squirm at the idea of an Inhumans film, Collider is confirming that a script for the property has been turned in.
The script comes from Joe Robert Cole, who came out of the same Marvel writing program as Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Nicole Perlman. According to the report, the draft will be sent out to various directors, who will then polish the script and execute Marvel’s vision. During the press tour, Gunn explained how he changed some aspects of the script to fit his and Marvel’s vision, but the structure and character development was Perlman’s doing.
For those who don’t know who The Inhumans are, the characters are composed of an altered race of humans who were Kree experiments sent to earth as sleeper agents that would be used in their war against the Skrulls. These experimental alterations lead to the experimented humans producing superpowers. Led by Blackbolt, the Inhumans go against the orders of being Kree sleeper agents, to live in a society they created.
The key thing about bringing The Inhumans to the fold is that they are human, who as a result of experiments, produced superpowers. Now it’s very unlikely that the Skrulls will be a part of this intergalactic war considering the Skrulls are a part of Fox’s Fantastic Four. But the genetic experimentation could explain how Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch developed their respective superpowers.
Nothing is confirmed as of yet, but having an Inhumans movie on tab would certainly be a lot of fun to see. Plus, we could get somewhat of an idea what Marvel has in store for us if the movie is fitted into one of the Marvel Mystery Movie scheduled release dates.
