ABC Cancels ‘Marvel’s Inhumans’

ABC shows mercy on Marvel fans and cancels the short lived Inhumans tv series. Spinning out of Marvel’s Agents Of Shield, Inhumans was meant to set the intergalactic royal space family up as Marvel Studio’s X-Men.

However after horrible reviews, zero to no fan interest, and now X-Men looking to be coming to Marvel Studios, that left Inhumans in a tough spot.

Marvel Comics also tried to replace Mutants with Inhumans by canceling their X-titles and do everything they can to push Inhumans to the forefront. The plan failed on both fronts.

With Inhumans getting the ax, this doesn’t automatically make Agents Of Shield safe either. But as of right now the Inhumans live-action appearances are on indefinite hold.

The Inhumans television series was created for ABC by Scott Buck, based on the Marvel Comics race of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films and other television series of the franchise. The series is a Marvel and IMAX Entertainment project, produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television in association with Devilina Productions. Buck served as showrunner.

The series is centered on Black Bolt, portrayed by Anson Mount, and other members of the Inhuman Royal Family. Serinda Swan, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Ellen Woglom, and Iwan Rheon also star. Marvel Studios announced an Inhumans film in 2014 as part of their Phase Three slate of films, with the species first introduced to the MCU in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The film was removed from Marvel Studios’ slate in April 2016, and the Inhumans series was announced that November, to be partly filmed using IMAX cameras. Buck joined the series in October, and Mount was cast in February 2017. Filming took place from March to June 2017, at the former Naval Air Station Barbers Point airfield in Kalaeloa, Hawaii and various locations on the island of Oahu.

Marvel currently doesn’t have any further plans regarding the Inhumans outside of possibly being mentioned on Agents Of Shield.
