- Marvel’s “Inhumans” will not be part of MCU Phase 4 due to its failure on TV.
- Kevin Feige confirmed that the characters might appear in future projects.
- Short-lived show premiered in 2017, lasting only one season on ABC.
Marvel’s “Inhumans,” a short-lived television series that premiered in 2017, is notably absent from Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) Phase 4. Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, recently explained why the show was absent in the upcoming slate of films and series during a Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour. He attributed it to the general failure of the series on ABC, which only lasted one season.
However, not all hope is lost for the characters of “Inhumans.” Feige mentioned that though there are no immediate plans to include them in Phase 4, it doesn’t mean the characters won’t make an appearance in the MCU down the road. Feige confirmed, “I think they have a little history that certainly could be explored later, but right now…”
Inhumans, a group of superhumans with diverse abilities, were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the 1960s. Unfortunately, the 2017 TV series didn’t achieve the same level of success as other Marvel projects in recent years, leading the franchise to leave it out from the upcoming MCU projects.
