Marvel has no shortage of properties they can use to adapt for the big or small screen. Considering how popular television has become, it’s no surprise that the studio would want to have a piece of that market. Now we are getting our first look at two of their newest shows. The Inhumans, which was once a film that has now become a TV series, though that doesn’t mean it won’t be getting the film treatment as its pilot will debut in IMAX theaters. Runaways is the second show. While it won’t have anything as grand as The Inhumans, the show has already been picked up by Hulu, so that’s a very good sign. Check out the first images and a teaser for The Inhumans, below.
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.
Well that escalated pretty quickly. Earlier today, Sony and Disney announced a deal that will allow the two to share Spider-Man. This deal would introduce a “new Spider-Man” who will first appear in a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), then get a standalone film for Sony (that will be co-produced by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and former Sony Pictures Co-Chairman Amy Pascal) to be released on July 28, 2017.
It is presumed that this “new Spider-Man” will first appear in Captain America: Civil War, which is set to be released on May 6, 2016, but there’s no confirmation at this time. This “reboot” likely also means the end of Andrew Garfield as the titular character, as well as the Sinister Six spinoff directed by Drew Goddard, the Venom spinoff directed by Alex Kurtzman, and the untitled all female-team spinoff.
With this new development, Marvel Studios is rescheduling the release dates of four of their MCU films. Hit the jump to find out which films will get new release dates.
