Though ABC and Marvel's upcoming IMAX series The Inhumans was originally reported as replacing the planned film from Marvel Studios, that may not be the case. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will still go on as planned, co-existing with the 8-part Inhumans series. What's more, the Hollywood trade reports that the series is not a spin-off of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which, in its last few seasons, has introduced the concept of the Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Television's Inhumans is scheduled to debut September 4, 2017, with the first two episodes running back-to-back on IMAX screens for two weeks. IMAX is reportedly funding the first two episodes, which include fight scenes staged on the moon. Later episodes, which will run on ABC in fall 2017, will also feature sequences filmed with IMAX cameras.
"We think this is a quadruple win - a win for IMAX, a win for Marvel, a win for ABC Studios and a win for ABC to launch a show in an innovative way and get attention," Disney-ABC Television Group president Ben Sherwood told THR.
It is unknown if Inhumans will have any connection to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or to the planned movie from Marvel Studios.
