Thanks to the addition of Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and an unexpected sequel planned for Ant-Man, the movie about the Inhumans has officially been pulled from the Marvel Studios schedule.
When the film was announced in 2014 Inhumans was going to come out in November 2018, between the two parts of Avengers: Infinity War. It was later delayed to July 2019. However, it became increasingly clear Inhumans would have to be delayed again, thanks to recent additions to the MCU and Disney schedules.
In an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige also explained that Disney’s new Indiana Jones movie is also scheduled to come out around the time Inhumans was supposed to hit theaters.
“Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now. How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.”
The Inhumans are already technically a part of the MCU, since they were introduced in ABC’s Agents of SHIELD. It will just take much longer for them to debut on the big screen. Then again, maybe Black Bolt and others could come up in Infinity War.
