ABC's Inhumans TV show to be ruled with an Iron Fist by Netflix showrunner

12.07.2016

Since Marvel Studios didn't own the rights to X-MEN or the term "mutants", the INHUMANS film was supposed to be their answer to Wolverine and the gang (as you can tell, it hasn't really panned out). Other than being a major plot point on the somehow still on the air AGENTS OF SHIELD, there hadn't been much movement on the INHUMANS film adaptation (at one point rumored to star a mute Vin Diesel as Black Bolt). However, some hope for the property emerged when it was announced that an INHUMANS TV show was in the works at ABC.

Now it looks like it's found it's showrunner: Buck Set. If you don't recognize his name, you might recognize the name IRON FIST, the show Set's been running that's coming out next year on Netflix. Yep, it seems more of that Marvel corporate synergy is hard at work, keeping it in the family. Maybe this could lead to more definitive collaboration between the different Marvel properties, as other than some cameos now-and-then of minor characters on AGENTS OF SHIELD, or some passing references in the Netflix shows, it seems that the MCU film division, ABC division, and Netflix division, are all pretty separate and self-contained. We'll see.

While there's no set release date for INHUMANS, you can check out IRON FIST next year on Netflix.

So what do you guys think? Excited about an INHUMANS show?

 

Extra Tidbit: The INHUMANS, as a whole, made their first appearance in FANTASTIC FOUR #45, 1965.

swing and a miss

I guess you were going for funny snark and just came off like a douche nozzle.
According to a decent amount of people, including me, AOS has turned itself into a pretty good show. I'd say save your snark for when you're actually reviewing AOS, but you're bashing here despite the fact that you don't even watch it. And that makes you sounds ignorant, condescending and like, as I mentioned before, a douche nozzle.

The classic lineup of Inhumans is a pretty unusual bunch of characters - be interesting to see how closely they stick to that. Whether doing it for TV instead of the big screen is the right idea is still very much up in the air, in my opinion, but I've enjoyed Agents Of SHIELD since the latter part of the first season where it finally found its groove - actually become a decent show since then. But yeah, Inhumans could work as a tv show if they're willing to throw a big enough budget behind it.

The Netflix Marvel shows have had limited use of visual superpowers - they'd need to take it to another level for Inhumans.

"being a major plot point on the somehow still on the air AGENTS OF SHIELD,"
Your job is to report the movie/tv related news, not show bias because you don't like a show.
What you should have wrote was "being a major plot point on AGENTS OF SHIELD," and left it at that. Show some freakin' class here. You don't have to like AOS, no one cares if you do or not, but when reporting on news related to a subject, regardless if you like/dislike it, do it properly.

I care. The writer is/isn't a fan just like us. If you don't like it there are other sites.

Wow you do realize that this isn't a hard hitting news site right? The fact that the writers share their opinions make it a better read. Just bc you like that show doesn't mean others should too. I watch it but I think it is very mediocre.

Sharing an opinion is fine and dandy as an afterthought but not during it. It simply did NOT need to even be mentioned as "why still on air" since it has zero to do with the subject matter. It's not an article on AOS, it's on an Inhumans TV series. I hate reality TV shows but IF I was reporting them, i'd do it without bias. It seems to be more frequent here. Jabs in articles where it really should just be left out.
Report what's relevant.

I think of most of Marvels Television Output was 8 episode Seasons (Even the Netflix stuff), the quality would be much much better. Like others have said, Shield has really grown into a decent/good show since the first season, but most will have to admit that even the 14 episode netflix series do drag around the 8-12 mark. If they shortened it to 8 episodes, you'd cut out so much damn fluff.

Sorry but Agents of SHIELD deserves to be on the air

After some growing pains during season 1, it became a very solid show and shows no signs of slowing down. I find it much better than CW's current outputs.

I actually find myself getting tired of Arrow and wish they'd focus on just story and less Oliver MIA timelines. I feel that's where the hurt is building. More time allotted to the story itself rather than boring backstory I don't think they need anymore. Flash I still like and somehow, not sure how, but I keep watching Supergirl. Legends Of Tomorrow I gave up on though.
Last Season AOS got a bit rough and I am glad Ward is finally gone. Hopefully with Ghostrider gone for now the next half

@GodMagnus I don't watch any of the CW shows any more. They keep casting actors who are good at funny, light material and they give them some dark, serious and (more often than not) poorly written drama to play. Berlanti and co. don't seem aware of what their strengths and weaknesses are.

Some Mentions?

You clearly DONT watch Shield, which is fine... but if you dont watch it dont comment on it? The Inhumans story line has been the major plot point for the last couple seasons. I mean, seriously???

Well...

The Inhumans have been a major plot point on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for about the last season and a half. Not just "some mentions".
