Marvel is developing a new movie project based on The Inhumans, a fictional race of superhumans, and apparently the studio has a completed script by Joe Robert Cole ready to go, the next step being to find a director. Actually, not so long ago Marvel had to decide if they wanted to make a Guardians of the Galaxy movie or an Inhumans movie first. They finally choose to do Guardians of the Galaxy first, but The Inhumans might be the next one and be one of the Marvel movies coming out in 2017. More from a report posted by Collider:
"Marvel plans to handle The Inhumans in the same way they handled Guardians of the Galaxy. For those who don’t know, the original draft of Guardians was written by Nicole Perlman, who was part of Marvel’s writing program. That draft then went out to filmmakers. When James Gunn came on board, he added his flavor and details to the story, but the characters, story structure, and beats from Perlman’s draft remained in place. As Adam explained in his recent editorial, directors are brought on board to execute a specific vision."
Collider's source told them that "this movie is part of Marvel not only expanding its list of properties, but actively building a multiple-film cosmic universe."
The Inhumans were created by the Kree in a series of alien experiments they were conducting on primitive homo-sapiens. The Kree ended up abandoning their work, and the Inhumans created went on to form a society of their own. That society is led by the king Black Bolt and his family Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, and the canine Lockjaw. More info on the Inhumans characters on Wikipedia HERE.
Vin Diesel is rumored to be playing the part of Black Bolt, but Marvel has yet to confirm all this.
