In the last year, if you had the fortunate chance of watching ABC’s Agents of SHIELD and seeing the news around it, you may have heard inclining of a group called the Inhumans. Between the blue alien who was rumored to be Kree, recently this was confirmed. To mysterious writing that now leads to a city. To now Marvel Studios announcing that in 2018 we will be receiving an Inhumans movie. Many fans who are don’t read the comics or may not have been reading them long, may not know why this is a major occurrence. But think of it this way, Marvel Studios can not use the franchise of X-Men yet and the Inhumans would be a great way of filling that space. For all intense purposes the Inhumans are fundamentally mutants. You may debate with me but they kinda are. We wanted to spotlight them because along with all the TV goings on they have, the comics world for them is also getting a lot bigger. They are now in the spotlight in a way they haven’t been in years. It’s time we fill everyone in on who or what they Inhumans are and why you should be into them.
In 1965, the issue of Fantastic Four number 45 was released. This issue written by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby would bring us a name that would become synonymous with a group that would have impact over the Marvel Universe for years to come. The group was known as the Inhumans. The Inhumans are a group of humans advanced by Kree technology. Now one thing I should point out is that this was done centuries before the modern Marvel Universe. Stan and Jack would write a story that would create a race of not only advance biology but also technologically more advance then anyone could imagine. A race that could fight against or with our more well known heroes. Also incorporating many of the cosmic species that they had created like the Kre and Skrull.
The story goes, that during the beginning of the Kree-Skrull war the Kree had set up a base on Saturn. From this base on Saturn they had become aware of primitive humans and noticed that they had a potential for more genetically. They wanted to use these humans to create a soldier to fight for them against the Skrulls. So they took primitive humans from Earth and experimented on them. Successfully creating humans that were advanced in every way. They eventually abandoned this due to a prophecy stating that eventually these beings would pose a threat to the Kree Supreme Intelligence. The Inhumans would survive and create their own society and go through a process called Terrigenesis. The process would cause issues so they would start a selective breeding process, creating a sort of caste system. This was the creation of the Inhumans and the royal family that we would soon be introduced to.
James Gunn’s foray into Marvel Cosmic has come. The trailer for Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” has arrived. The trailer shows just a little of the humor that the most recent Guardians is known for. Will we get the talking heads? Will we get the slap stick? Will we even get the now famous confessionals that tells us about what happened behind the scenes? Who knows! Most that have been fans of Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, and Drax are probably hoping for at least nods there. But who knows what will be pulled from the Guardians illustrious history. What we do know is that nods are done. The soundtrack for the trailer was great. Also, did anybody notice that Peter Quill may still be using a walkman? I can’t wait. And any Whovians that watched should have spotted Amy Pond herself Karen Gillan as the villainous Nebula. Wish we could have saw Lee Pace’ Ronan. Oh well, I think this will help us get through til the movie premieres stateside on August 1st 204.
Cast: Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, David Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Racoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser.
Most of the time when someone tells me that a movie that already has seemingly been on my “i don’t know” list is moving its opening date back, I smell issues. That’s what happened when I read the news from my inbox that Superman/Batman was being pushed back a year. I literally went “well this is not looking good”. DC and WB have been saying that this date opened up and they were happy to see how well it works for them. But they placed another movie, Peter Pan, into the slot which also hasn’t gonna into production yet. I thought it was odd. Now I am speaking in the past tense because I got a bit of other news in my inbox right after that. Apparently the date they chose is May 6th 2016, I’m sure most of us don’t keep every release date in existence written down. But maybe we should. That is also the date of an untitled Marvel movie. Marvel has locked in dates for all their future movies for the next few years. DC and WB have now picked a date that would put them toe to toe with Marvel/Disney. I started to think when I saw this that it may have been strategy. Also, that is 2016 date for Free Comic Day, the date that comic companies and local comic book retailers give special books away for free to customers. Was this planning once DC/WB saw the date on the calendar? Was this kismet? Hopefully the latter is true and they are hoping for more people to head to the theater because of the fanboy quality and not because they already are having issues. What do you think? I guess time will tell.
