Inhumans and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and beyond)

With Fox doing well with the X-Men, the MCU has a long way to go before they see a mutant. I haven't been keeping too much on the comics but I know they're using the Inhumans to reintroduce naturally super powered humans on earth. I'm aware Marvel plans to put the Inhumans on the big screen but most of the websites online are rumors and speculation but the general conclusion is that they'll be the MCU's explanation of Mutants.

It got me thinking though, with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver appearing in Avengers 2 and the next X-Men movie as characters both properties can use, what's the chances the Inhumans can fall in the same category? Characters you'll see next to Captain America in one movie and Wolverine in the next.

The Inhumans have mostly been used in conjunction with the Fantastic Four, so I imagine they're FF exclusive.

Nitpick: only Quicksilver is appearing in both AoU and DOFP. As far as we know Wanda isn't in DOFP.

Maybe they can finally explain why the Inhumans wear masks when they don't have secret identities.

No, Kevin Feige has mentioned The Inhumans several times in regards to potential projects.

Re: Inhumans and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and beyond)

I have no idea where I read this, but it was in a comic, so canonesque from maybe 10 or 15 years ago...

All Inhumans are born looking like human beings, it's not until terrigenesis that most of them become horrifically deformed while being fed all these fairy stories that they are fantastic miracles and god loves them...

The more human looking Inhumans post terrigenesis have to wear masks, if they have any manners or sense of decency, because it's embarrassing how fucked up they are not whenmost of their freinds and family have been bitch slapped by the ugly stick.

I've read this as well. I think Marvel has the right to The Inhumans. The rights that I was surprised to find out recently that Marvel doesn't have is to Namor. Apparently, Universal has them, for now...

You're right about the appearance changing with terrigenesis for the weird looking inhumans (heck, Lockjaw isn't actually a dog, he's an inhuman who became who he is because of terrigenesis), but the mask thing I can only remember from a Marvel story called Fantastic Four: The End, set in an alternate future for the group. There, the mask thing was mentioned, with even Crystal wearing a mask. But, in normal continuity, several human looking inhumans like Maximus [usually], Crystal and her daughter, and Black Bolt's son (most of the time atleast, in the FF book) don't wear masks, although masks do seem to be popular for inhumans. But, in the normal Marvel U, I think its just a ceremonial thing more than because of any dislike of human looking inhumans. I could be wrong, but it seems to me that's how it works in the normal Marvel comic universe.

Lockjaw is a dog.

Pretending that he is a person was a Joke they played on the Thing.

Ben thinks that Lockjaw is a stuck up dick who keeps snubbing him, and everyone else is laughing their ass off behind the Thing's massive brickhouse of a back.

From wikipedia...

At one point, Quicksilver and the Thing witnessed what appeared to be Lockjaw, apparently a sentient being once mutated by Terrigen Mists, speaking to them. This convinces Quicksilver not to expose his daughter Luna to the Mists.[10] However, Lockjaw later brought Quicksilver to Washington, D.C., in search of X-Factor, and Quicksilver there stated that Lockjaw's sentience was actually a hoax perpetrated on the Thing by Karnak and Gorgon.[11]

Is it the same actor/costume/background story ?

Nope. Two different actors. Two different companies are producing two different movies. Each has the right to the comic book character, but they are taking the character in a different direction. Ah, licensing deals...

Re: Inhumans and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and beyond)

This topic really made me smile today. I actually owned one of the early issues of the Inhumans way back in the day. Here's a panel of the Inhuman Medusa from FF #99 in 1970.


I doubt anyone on the forum ever read them, but Strange Tales came out far before and they weren't in high demand in my area and they'd turn up in rummage sales. They cost a dime and went for far less when resold. Many times comic heroes began in that publication. I owned this October 1961 Kirby illustrated edition with the ridiculous name Fin Fang Foom.


Early Kirby Black Bolt


Though I wasn't that much of a fan of the Thor film when it came it, the costume designer obviously well researched Kirby's art.

That makes some sense; those two had to find a new victim after their ill-advised attempt to make Black Bolt laugh.
