Inhumans Marvel Reportedly Moving Forward With THE INHUMANS; Could Vin Diesel Star? written by Sean Gerber August 12, 2014 Collider has learned through its sources that Marvel Studios is planning to move forward with THE INHUMANS. The studio already has a script they like from Joe Robert Cole and will be reaching out to directors in hopes of releasing the film on one of several dates Marvel has booked between 2017 and 2019. Vin Diesel has also teased his involvement on social media. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY was always an important film for Marvel, as it had the potential to launch a brand new, cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though the studio has never lacked confidence, GOTG’s incredible success has now given Marvel license to continue and expand that pursuit. THE INHUMANS is a very logical next step and could even crossover with GUARDIANS one day, as they did in the comic book “War of Kings” story arc. Vin Diesel, whose voice can currently be heard saying, “I am Groot,” in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, teased The Inhumans as his next Marvel project on his Facebook page just a couple days ago. Post by Vin Diesel. If Diesel really is involved with THE INHUMANS, expect him to star as Black Bolt. Don’t worry about the fact that you’ve heard Diesel’s voice in the MCU, as Black Bolt, King of The Inhumans, doesn’t speak much. What Diesel would bring is the presence and intensity required for a character that relies on non-verbal communication because his voice is a weapon of mass destruction. First appearing in FANTASTIC FOUR #45 (1965), the Inhumans are a race of super-powered beings whose abilities can lay dormant until they are exposed to Terrigen Mist. In less nerdy terms, think of them as Marvel’s cosmic answer to the Earth-based X-Men. The Inhuman Royal Family, of which some combination would probably be the main team featured on film, consists of the aforementioned Black Bolt, Queen Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Lockjaw, and Maximus the Mad (Black Bolt’s brother).

Wants Two Competing Scripts For AQUAMAN Andrew Custer Diesel as Black Bolt would be epic and like Sean and others have mentioned, the Inhumans could certainly tie into Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch as well since mutants are a no-fly zone. Also… bring back Lee Pace as Maximus the Mad! Michael Lalaian I’ve been hoping for Inhumans for a while now. I have my money on Skye being an Inhuman, which is why her parents were “monsters.” Raina’s line asking “What will I become?” also leads me to believe she is expecting to be exposed to the Terrigen Mists at some point. Nayan Desai I would imagine there will be a strong influence from the Paul Jenkins/Jae Lee run. That brought a real world quality to the Inhumans story, showing how suspicious and paranoid the humans were with them as they were a closed off society within earth. I recommend that run to anyone who has yet to read it.
