Marvel Studios has been trying their best to make the Inhumans a household name, similar to the Guardians of the Galaxy. A movie was announced but never came to fruition, so the Inhumans made the move to ABC with their own television series and sadly, it wasn’t received well and cancelled after one season. However, they may be getting a second chance.
According to our friends over at Geeks WorldWide, the Inhumans could get the reboot and be introduced again in the upcoming Disney+ series Ms. Marvel.
The site is also reporting that Vin Diesel, who currently voices Groot, is being considered for the role of Black Bolt, Who cannot utter a single word without breaking something. What’s even more interesting is Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who played Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron is being considered for Maximus, Black Bolt’s villainous brother.
This news makes a lot of sense, Ms. Marvel is an Inhuman herself, so what a way to re-introduce these characters. Diesel has been pushing to play Black Bolt for years now, so we have to assume he signs.
The series is looking to begin production sometime next September.
Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral writer, Brisha K. Ali has signed on to be the series’ writer and showrunner.
“Ms. Marvel as a comic and heroine has existed since 1976, with the character Carol Danvers using the name for her crime-fighting escapades. Several other characters have briefly taken up the mantle, and Danvers herself became Captain Marvel in 2012.”
The series will focus on the shape-shifting Pakistani-American teenager Kamala Khan from New Jersey, while there is no report yet of when the series will premiere. Hopefully, this leads to her own standalone film, or possibly appearance in the Captain Marvel sequel.
