When Marvel originally announced their Phase Three slate, things seemed pretty clear and the look of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seemed to be concrete. That was, until they managed to form a partnership with Sony Pictures and were able to include Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War as well as announcing a solo film for the character in 2017. That resulted in quite a few scheduling and release date changes, and things just got even more crazy when they then announced a surprise sequel for Ant-Man, titled Ant-Man and the Wasp.
One of the more obscure films included in the original announcement as well was an Inhumans movie in 2019, which has been heavily set up and hinted at in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD already on ABC. According to Kevin Feige though, the 2019 date for that film might not be as solid as it was a few years ago.
While recently speaking with Collider, the Marvel head revealed that the film’s release date will likely change sometime soon, due to the new additions to the slate in the time since in the original announcement, and the studio’s work on the other event films in the MCU:
“Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now. How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.”
But it’s not a matter of “they’re already doing that on TV, we’re not doing it?”
“No, It’s a question of when.”
Considering how little we’ve heard of the project in the time since the original announcement, the reveal that Inhumans won’t actually be arriving in 2019 anymore, doesn’t come as that much of a surprise, especially when you remember all of the announcements that have come regarding practically every other announced MCU film over the past few years. At this point though, I’m more interested in how much progress has been made on the Captain Marvel movie, which other than a screenplay and casting rumors, has also been mysteriously quiet as of late.
Nonetheless, it looks like the future of the MCU might not be as certain as we had thought, and it will be interesting to see just how different of a cinematic universe we might end up having by the time Infinity War Part 2 comes to an end.
As of right now, Inhumans is set to hit theatres on July 12th, 2019.
