Confirmed: Inhumans, Guardians In Marvel’s Post-Avengers Plans

While we’ve known, or at least strongly suspected, for a while that Marvel’s big-screen plans likely included the Inhumans and the Guardians of the Galaxy, the new issue of Entertainment Weeklythe one with The Avengers on the cover, naturally — provides the first confirmation.

In a sidebar to the Avengers feature, EW rattles off a list of five films that will occupy Marvel’s time after Earth’s Mightiest Heroes arrive in theaters in March. In addition to Iron Man 3 and Thor 2, there’s Ant-Man — “still nebulous, but definitely in the works,” the magazine says — Guardians of the Galaxy and Inhumans. “There’s an opportunity to do a big space epic, which Thor sort of hints at, in the cosmic side of the [Marvel] universe,” says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

Curiously, though, there’s no mention of Doctor Strange, which is reportedly is search of a director to oversee development, or Runaways, which screenwriter Drew Pearce had said is just waiting for a greenlight.

    I just hope Marvel is willing to go beyond their current film formula when approaching these films.

    And if the Skrull’s really are in The Avengers, then they’ve already begun building that side of the MCU very directly.

  • Joe

    I’ll direct Dr. Strange! I mean, if they need someone to do it, sign me up!

    Are Skrulls rumored? Along with Loki, the Red Skull and the Cosmic Cube, that’s gonna be a heck of a threat for them. Even with the Hulk…

  • Jacob

    Skrulls are rumored. We’ve seen set pictures of them fighting multiple motion capture opponents. There were early news reports of a synopsis including them. There were a couple of reports about extras having to react to space ships.

    I haven’t heard anything about the Red Skull though. Where did you here that?

    ya !

    Umm, I don’t think the Red Skull and the Cosmic Cube are in the Avengers movie. Skrulls are a safe bet because of the pics we’ve seen. Also there are clips of an Avnegers movie tie-in video game going around that have them fighting Skrulls.

  • Jacob

    The Cosmic Cube definitely is. Loki acquired it at the end of Thor.

  • Matt Spatola

    Why does that necessarily mean it ‘definitely’ is? That’s actually an opinion and not a fact. We actually don’t know hardly any facts about the movie.

  • Jacob

    Every post-credits teaser has been setting up The Avengers. Why would Thor be an exception?

  • Drhiphop85

    I would actually bet that you would probably need some type of origin story for GotG and the Inhumans, since they are very unknown to the general populace. And I actually think it wouldn’t be as big an issue as the traditional superhero origin tale. I mean Star Wars was an origin story so why not do something similar with GotG?

    I mean Vance as essentially a future version of Captain America (I say even have them on the same Earth as the Avengers) but with 21st Century sensibilities. Charlie would be the funny, muscle. Starhawk (I say go with the female version) would be awesome. Yondu and Martinex (might not go with the total crystal thing, maybe allow him to change his body to crystal) would be cool too. ANd have the Badoon as the baddies? 

    Shoot I’m hype to see it already

  • what?

    Groot, Cosmo, and Rocket Raccoon on the Big screen would be awesome.

  • Jeffrey Scott Burke

    No Skrulls. (SPOILER) The alien race has been confirmed by Fiege, they are called the Chitauri.

  • Kdgr07

    The Chitauri are Skrulls. It’s what they’re known as in the Ultimate verse.
