In spring of last year, we wrote about how Marvel was planning to develop smaller-scale films based around some of its third-tier characters. The idea was that these films could be produced for less money, because they would focus on street-level characters like Luke Cage as well as Iron Fist – and could feature emerging talent in key roles.
However, that doesn’t mean Marvel is only planning to keep things small in the future. With its upcoming films Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, both of which will feature the Cosmic Cube, Marvel is expanding into some interesting science-fiction territory. Could the studio take things a step further with a movie based on the Inhumans?
Devin Faraci at Badass Digest spotted a post on a tracking board showing a logline for what could be an Inhumans movie. According to the poorly written logline, the film would revolve around “aliens who were put on Earth as sleeper cell aliens to eventually call back their race to take over the planet. Ultimately, the group of aliens fully assimilates and don’t want to cause war.”
For those unfamiliar with the Inhumans and their place in the Marvel universe, here’s a little background. The Inhumans were created by the Kree alien empire – via genetic experimentation on prehistoric humans. The result was a race of humans who had special powers. The Kree gave up on the Inhumans, however, allowing them to build their own empire (they currently reside on the moon.)
Typically, the franchise stories revolve around the Inhuman royal family, led by Black Bolt, whose voice delivers supersonic blasts of power. Other members of The Inhumans include Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, and a dog named Lockjaw.
In Marvel mythology, the Kree and Skrull empires have frequently been at odds. Considering that a rumor from the end of last year claimed that both the Kree and the Skrull would be villains in The Avengers movie, perhaps it’s not too far-fetched to think that there is a place for The Inhumans in the Marvel movie universe.
