Marvel's Inhumans Will Be Rebooted in Fantastic Four Franchise

The Inhumans may have flopped as a TV show, but they have an epic future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to sources, the Inhumans are headed to the Fantastic Four cinematic franchise; in fact, they are being developed for the second installment.

Of particular interest to Marvel Studios is Black Bolt. His scream can slice cities in half, an alien wail that, with enough intensity, has the decibel crush of the sky’s cries if they are slashed by God.

When a group of explorers rocket into his hidden city in the Himalayas, Black Bolt of the Inhumans launches a ferocious attack on the ship’s crew, the Fantastic Four. Reed Richards and his wife Sue; her brother Johnny Storm; and Reed’s best friend Ben Grimm, find themselves in the cockpit of an exploding jet. Sue quickly envelops her family with a force field to protect them, but they quickly adapt into action. Johnny flames on, his body on fire as he soars down to fight the surprised enemy below.

But Blackagar Boltagon is not alone.

He has a family of his own, a Royal one. Medusa; Crystal; Gorgon; and Triton. All in full costume, in their Jack Kirby glory. Marvel TV once attempted a no-budget take on the Inhumans. It went nowhere, fizzling fast. The current plan is to recast and reboot the Royal Family; all the build-up from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will finally pay off.

It’s unknown exactly where the Inhumans will debut in the MCU first although Kamala Khan, who’s going to have her own Disney Plus series Ms. Marvel, is of Inhuman heritage in the comic books.

Long-range goals have always been the Marvel Studios way. Discussions begin years in advance before directors or screenwriters are hired. And that’s where the Inhumans are at the moment: waiting in the Himalayas of the imagination before the sound that can be heard around the world.
