Marvel's The Inhumans will be coming to IMAX and ABC as a TV series in 2017

Marvel's The Inhumans TV ABC IMAX

It's been several years since Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced that the INHUMANS would be a part of the third phase of Marvel's Cinematic Universe but, after several delays, the project was pulled from their schedules earlier this year. Will we ever get to see The Inhumans on the big-screen? Yes we will, and sooner than we thought, but as with most things, there's a twist. Marvel Television and Disney/ABC Television Group announced today that they have green-lit a new Marvel TV series which will bring The Inhumans to life on some of the biggest screens in the world.

Marvel's The Inhumans, as the series will be called, will "explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family." The new series will be filmed entirely with IMAX digital cameras and the first two episodes will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX theaters for two weeks in the beginning of September 2017. After which the series will premiere on ABC in the fall as a weekly show with exclusive content that can only be seen on the network. That's how they get ya. What does this mean for the INHUMANS movie? Just a few weeks ago Kevin Feige told /Film that he believes that the "Inhumans will happen for sure" but that he didn't know when. He added that as Marvel begins to move into Phase 4 that it "could happen as a movie" and that he thinks "it would be super cool." There's no official word on whether this new series sinks the INHUMANS movie, but it certainly doesn't look good.

Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC Television Group said:

This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience. It highlights Disney|ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.

IMAX CEO, Rich Gelfond added:

This first-of-its-kind multi-platform production, distribution and marketing agreement brings together Marvel Television’s unique brand of entertainment, ABC’s unparalleled audience and IMAX’s brand and global fanboy demographic. It also takes our decades-long relationship with The Walt Disney Company to a whole new level, jointly breaking new ground in the industry. We are confident our exhibition partners will be excited to work with us on this innovative launch of a series across the IMAX network.

Take it home Marvel Television president Dan Buckley.

We're happy to see this unique deal come together, working with our partners. In an ever-changing world of distribution and consumption, it’s very exciting to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that takes us to the forefront of this evolution.

What are your thoughts on this move? Are The Inhumans better suited for television? Should the feature-film be abandoned?

Extra Tidbit: Although Marvel's Agents of SHIELD has been exploring the world of the Inhumans for some time, it's not yet clear how much of that story-line, if any, this new series will draw upon.

I'd guess they'll go for a Game Of Thrones type setup.
But premiering a TV show in IMAX?
They may go for spectacular effects which will then never be seen properly again or even guest stars that will never be seen again.

I'm neutral on this for now because frankly as much as I love the Inhumans, I'm truly skeptical they can do a space scifi adventure with the special effects needed for the Royal Family and expected of the Marvel universe. I want it to be good, I wanted them ot be included in the MCU movie end of the universe. It seems like despite all their rhetoric that the MCU is shared, "shared" only means the TV shows mention the movies and that it. No tv show has ever been referenced in the movies. Its a

Its a one way street. And how do you have the cosmic war that is the Infinity War without the space Royal family? So I'm very cautious. That being said, as soon as they introduced Inhumans in Shield on TV, I figured its days were numbered in the movies. That damn separation of church and state that is going on at Marvel Movies & TV was going to claim it as a victim. I just hope and pray it will be good, because I love the characters.

Inhumans pushed to TV because Marvel reboot of X-Men in cinemas?

Inhumans in the cinematic universe was meant to be an X-Men replacement to explain powers without the use of "mutants."

We already know Fox is working with Marvel TV to collaborate on X-Men universe TV shows (Legion).

So what's next? X-Men cinema reboot with Marvel a la Spider-Man?

Makes sense.

I'll wait until there is more information to get excited about this. I don't know anything about inhumans other than what is one AoS, and a lot of the plot seems to cover ideas already explored in the X-Men films. Is the pilot getting a big budget and therefore going to theaters? Or is this like the Clone Wars movie (which I didn't see) where they figure the fanbase is large enough, they think they can make some extra money by having a theatrical release?

I don't know about this. It's cool that we're finally going to see the Inhumans in live action and enter the already established MCU, but it's not like the show won't be limited in what they can or cannot do in terms of storyline, budget, effects, etc in comparison to making it a full feature film/franchise.

This makes much more sense after how much Inhumans have tied into AoS. A movie would no doubt have nothing to with the events of Agents of Shield, but now I have to assume this move was done to incorporate what we've already seen in the show.
