Kevin Feige gives an update on the status of Black Panther and Inhumans

Black Panther Captain America: Civil War Chadwick Boseman Inhumans

Marvel's third phase of their cinematic universe is set to kick off very soon with the release of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and in addition to being absolutely jam-packed with heroes and villains, the film will also serve as our first introduction to Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther. Following his turn in CIVIL WAR, the king of Wakanda is set to headline his own solo-film from director Ryan Coogler (CREED). Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently spoke with Collider where he said that they were very close to locking down a script for BLACK PANTHER.

We have a number of writers on it including Ryan Coogler, who is also directing, he’s working on the draft right now. Between now and the end of the summer there will be more casting announcements. We start filming at the very beginning of next year.

While I can honestly say that I am looking forward to each and every film on Marvel's slate, some more than others, I've found that it's been the films about the characters I'm the least familiar with which have been the biggest surprises. With Chadwick Boseman already looking like one of the scene-stealer's in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR and Ryan Coogler at the helm of BLACK PANTHER, I'm already excited discover more about T'Challa. Another part of the Marvel universe with which I'm not overly familiar with are The Inhumans, but as Kevin Feige said to Collider, we may be a little further off from encountering them than we originally thought.

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.

BLACK PANTHER is set for a February 16, 2018 release and while INHUMANS is still slated for July 12, 2019, it seems like we should be prepared for that to change. Meanwhile CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR will hit theaters on May 6, 2016 and the first reactions have been very positive.

Inhumans better happen as Black Bolt is one of my favorite Marvel characters. The rest of the royal family is meh, but he is kickass. However below I saw someone mention it better have Kamala Khan in it. VERY doubtful as this movie was scheduled to introduce the royal family which resides off of earth. I know I read interviews where it confirm that Black Bolt and his family would go through the origin story route since next to no one knows who these characters are ala Guardians. So indeed maybe

I know I read interviews where it confirm that Black Bolt and his family would go through the origin story route since next to no one knows who these characters are ala Guardians. So indeed maybe a sequel or even Agents of Shield since they are focusing on earth based Inhumans. As a matter of fact she would be a great character to introduce on AOS and then spin off into a series. She is a family friendly character so it would fit ABC more so than Netflix and would definitely be a better idea than Marvel's Most Wanted with hunter and mockingbird.

I'm with the up to the InHumans nonsense.

There are so many things going on I feel like the InHumans don't deserve a full blown movie, epsecially if they sidelined Daredevil to Netflix. Daredevil should have been a movie and InHumans should be a TV show. Nobody who isn't a die hard fan of Marvel really knows about the InHumans, and they are a hard group to get behind. At least with Guardians they had two characters that got kids attention and their parents butts in the seats (Rocket and Groot).

They could not do Inhuman with a TV budget (AoS is a proof of that)
But MOSTLY, Marvel/Disney want their 'X-Men' (and that's basically what they have become in the comics, for a few month).

Inhumans and the royal family story is an off world outer space origin story. Like Cath said there is ZERO chance they could do that right on a tv budget. I think I read Daredevil cost about 40-45 million to make. No way to do Inhuman proper on that budget. And Marvel needs the Inhumans to be their new Xmen, ie natural born superpowered characters as opposed to science or tech made superheroes. Disney isn't going to release R-Rated style movies, so netflix is a perfect home for those darker

Daredevil's story benefits SO much from being slowed down to dozens of hours though. At this point, I couldn't imagine doing Daredevil as a single movie and it being good.

I don't know much about the Inhumans other than what has been a big part of Agents of Shield on TV for at least a season now. And honestly it sort of comes off as so similar to what themes/ideas have already been explored in the X-Men films, it would be the first MCU film I didn't have much interest in.

It's reassuring how confident Marvel is in introducing brand new characters in other comic book heroes films (i.e. Spider Man, Black Panther) to only then debut their OWN films later on. And the fact that those two characters are already receiving critical praise is great to hear.

Should be a lot of fun to see how lethal and badass of a fighter Black Panther is compared to everyone else in the MCU.

If Marvel is introducing Inhumans,

are they going to try bringing in Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel?

Maybe in a sequel of Captain Marvel after the Inhumans movie? Could be possible and nice.

Yeah I agree with Maya that they probably should introduce Captain marvel first but the focus of the movie has always been known to be the royal family which is off world.

Oh, I thought Inhumans was dead?

I have no idea of that comic but looking forward to being introduced to it through the film
