After a while of having the Inhumans movie sit on the shelf for months with no real plans for it to actually happen, Marvel threw us a curve-ball when they announced that they would be reincarnated from the the comics into a TV show, though the movie would still be happening after Phase 4. We don’t know many details concerning the cast, but we do know that the show itself will be coming out next September, with a limited 2-week release of the first two episodes in IMAX theaters, and will consist of 8 episodes total.
Many are excited about this new development, and there’s more that’s come out today. We’ve had shows have episodes air in movie theaters like Game of Thrones, but none that have premiered in theaters. The first two episodes will have about 80 minutes of content, and will be shown in IMAX to contain “cinema-quality visual effects” and be “enhanced due to IMAX technology”, according to the NY Times. The move has made IMAX Entertainment CEO Greg Foster interested in bringing some more shows in the IMAX world.
“We’re already looking for a second [series]. This is at the high end of the range of what we’ll be doing, but we’re already looking for a second one. It’s a really exciting opportunity that could blossom into more.”
While we aren’t exactly sure if these plans will include Marvel or not, this is pretty exciting to know that the Inhumans show won’t be the only one we’ll be waiting in line for in the coming years. The shows that come from this unprecedented show premiere will open up shows to have better quality, like we mentioned earlier. The CEO also went on to say;
“Hopefully this will spawn more seasons of the show, and opportunistically, we’re looking at other opportunities and programs that we can become part of.”
With every but of news that comes up with this show, it only makes me more excited for the future of Marvel television, and other TV shows that might follow the Inhumans lead. Perhaps changing the Inhumans from being only a movie to being a show and a future movie was a good idea, as the decision has excited the fans for next year, along with all of their other projects. Hopefully we don’t get disappointed with this one, but so far, this ship is sailing.
