Marvel just cut this movie from its upcoming slate

Sometimes, the movie gods like to mess with our heads. They delay production, order re-shoots and push back release dates — most recently, with Power Rangers and the fourth Divergent film. Now, Marvel’s Inhumans is getting the same treatment. But the film wasn’t just pushed back — it was removed from the Disney release calendar altogether. The move happened late on Friday night, and the studio has yet to announce a new date.

But why? Well, a lot has been happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After Inhumans was announced a few new faces popped up, like Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and the Wasp. What’s more is the Inhumans storyline is already being explored on TV on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So rumors have been swirling for a while that the movie project might be put on hold.

“I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now,” MCU president Kevin Feige told Collider earlier this month. “How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.”

Originally, Inhumans was going to hit theaters on November 2, 2018. That date became July 12, 2019, with Captain Marvel taking its original slot. Now, the movie is off the calendar altogether, and in cinematic limbo for the time being. Could it be canceled altogether? Feige assures us not.

“It’s a question of when,” he continued.

All we can do is stay tuned to see what the film’s fate will be. Fingers crossed that it moves forward soon!
