Kevin Feige denies the presence of The Inhumans in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Between recent events on AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. and the inclusion of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, many fans have been left wondering how Joss Whedon will tackle the inability to include the concept of mutantkind since that and the X-MEN are the property of 20th Century Fox. Some have theorized that Marvel may use the concept of The Inhumans to further explain things.

If you are unfamiliar with The Inhumans, here it is in a nutshell: the alien species known as the Kree visited Earth millions of years ago. At war with The Skrulls (aka the Chitauri in the MCU), the Kree experimented on ancient humans to develop a mutant race to combat their enemy. The resulting beings had superhuman powers and became known as Inhumans. Marvel recently launched the Inhumanity storyline which is altering how mutants are viewed in the comic book universe while also providing a handy alternative to calling such beings Mutants.

With a blue, Kree-like being appearing on AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., many are thinking that we will be seeing the Inhumans introduced, possibly leading to their own feature film. Naturally, Marvel honcho Kevin Feige was asked if this is what we should expect Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to be revealed as Inhumans in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

“As it relates to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver? No. No, no, no.”

Feige doesn't tend to beat around the bush. He has indicated in the past that there is hope for an Inhumans movie someday, but it doesn't appear that it will be in Whedon's big sequel. Unless Feige is playing along as to not spoil the bigger reveal. What do you believe?

THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON hits theaters on May 1, 2015.
