Marvel's Inhumans movie may be Vin Diesel's mystery Phase 3 project

09.19.2013

Stan Lee is no Kevin Feige, but he still has some knowledge of where his creations are headed on the silver screen. During a recent interview, Lee told TooFab that Phase Three would feature Black Panther, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, and "probably the Inhumans". The Inhumans first appeared in an issue of Fantastic Four and are a race of genetically modified humans given spectacular powers by a vapor known as the Terrigen Mists, populated by characters with names like Black Bolt, Medusa and Karnak.

We also know that Vin Diesel has been approached by Marvel not just for the role of Groot in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY but also for a Phase Three project that Diesel called a "merging of brands". While he referred to it as "fresh IP" as well, could that brand merging be in reference to the upcoming Marvel Comics event called Inhumanity?

The Hollywood Reporter explains the comic event for us:

Later this year, Marvel is set to overhaul the concept in an event called "Inhumanity," in which many regular humans will be revealed to be descended from Inhumans, giving them latent powers that could manifest in later life -- in other words, a version of the central "mutant" concept of X-Men, but one whose movie rights are controlled by Marvel ("Inhumanity" will lead into a January-launching series, Inhuman, as part of Marvel's All-New Marvel NOW! publicity push).

Disney and Marvel have been forced to skirt the mutant characters due to 20th Century Fox owning X-MEN and mutant related titles, but the Inhumanity event could make that a moot topic. Giving everyday humans superpowers opens the door for all new characters, one of which could be who Vin Diesel is talking about. If this comes to pass, it could put to rest any chance of the X-MEN crossing into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Disney would have no need for those titles and could just invent new ones.

While no Phase Three movies are formally announced yet, I assume we will know more sometime next year when CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER opens on April 4, 2014 and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY on August 1, 2014.

Sounds like a tie-in to the "Agents of SHIELD" show

"Inhumanity" could go a long way to explaining tons of new minor characters on the show.

So that will explain Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver I guess. If true....Marvel just keep coming up with the goods.

It's clever but I don't wanna see the Avengers fight alongside Professor I, Badger, Jean Brown and Shadowbat.

I can see Vin being stoic enough to play Black Bolt though.

This sounds like a very intriguing idea. I'm interested to see what Marvel has in store.

"Disney would have no need for those titles and could just invent new ones."

That is flat-out crazy talk.

It's alright bro, I've given them two or three scoops in the past 6 months all of which have panned out and they haven't ran with any of them. I love the site and I am in now ay trying to bad mouth them, but I finally just started sending my scoops to one of the other movie sites, which amazingly actually does run them and has beat JoBlo to the punch on a couple of stories because of it.

Wow, way to shit in your own back yard. Why not email someone who cares rather than post a bitchy 3rd grade style whine-fest?

Cool

But i still kinda wanna see REAL mutants in Marvel Universe but hey you take what you can get. And maybe this can open up for Namor to appear since he is half Mutant. Altho, they would have to get that character from Universal. Also, since they drastically changed Mandarin, im betting they would slightly alter Black Bolts power so someone of Vins caliber would have a speaking role. cant keep a voice like his silent.

Would definitely be cool to see and Diesel has enough 'pull' with the fans in where he would bring in maybe more profit.

The saddest thing about Vin maybe being Black Bolt is, the character cant speak, wasting Diesel's awesome pipes

The only Inhuman I could see him playing is Blackbolt. It could be cool. My only issue would be that Blackbolt's powers force him to say so little and Diesel's voice is so big.

Definitely sounds good, it makes sense for them to use Inhumans to describe Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver, plus I like Vin Diesel.

I've always wanted to see an Inhumans movie but not necessary like that.
