Marvel Studios’ Phase Four would have introduced The Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it seemed like it was leading up to that when the group was introduced in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show. However, any plans for The Inhumans to appear in a film or on the big screen may have been axed Marvel’s The Inhumans is now in the works as a television series.
The news was confirmed by Marvel Television, Disney/ABC TelevisionGroup, and IMAX. That’s right, IMAX is involved in this. That’s because, the “first two episodes of Marvel Television’s new series “Marvel’s The Inhumans” — produced in conjunction with ABC Studios and filmed entirely with IMAX digital cameras — will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks at the beginning of September 2017.” The series then moves to its regular season run on ABC. The deal marks the first time that IMAX is co-producing network television.
If you missed out on seeing one or more of the Harry Potter movies in theaters, all eight movies are being re-released soon.
It’s been announced that the movies will be returning to IMAX theaters starting just over a week from now, with tickets available for both single and multiple shows if you want to make a day of it. The promotion is to help gets fans even more excited than they already are for the release of the spinoff prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them just over a month from now.

And why you shouldn’t piss off Peter Thiel …and much more!
It is looking as if Marvel Studios’ two-part, all-star superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War is going to be bigger than we have been compelled to anticipate. Marvel chose today to drop a few of their patented news grenades on the unsuspecting interwebs, including Emily Van Camp’s casting and Paul Rudd and William Hurt’s reprising their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles in next year’s Captain America: Civil War. But one of their biggest announcements is that Infinity War will make cinematic history by being the first feature film to be shot entirely using IMAX cameras.
Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo will employ the revolutionary next generation IMAX/ARRI 2D digital camera to film both parts of Infinity War after first using it for select action sequences in Civil War. Apparently normal-sized theater screens will no longer be sufficient to contain the widescreen excitement of the MCU. Go figure.
