Comicbook.com pointed out a reference to the Inhumans on Selvig's blackboard in Thor: The Dark World. "The Fault", featured on the blackboard directly ties to the Inhumans.
Why is Muspelheim missing from the drawing of the Nine Realms? And is it just me, or did he spell Jotunheim as "Yotunhiem"? Come on! Isn't Selvig supposed to be of Scandinavian descent?

This was posted in the MCU thread but I thought I should add it here. It looks like Marvel is moving forward with the Inhumans.

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

This was interesting-

http://www.denofgeek.us/tv/agents-of...-and-in-marvel

“Inhumans represent a different chapter,” Gregg said. “At least in the comics, the Inhumans, they’re a race of people who’ve been transformed. They’re mutants, more or less. I’ve always loved that part of the comics. They’re people who have evolved differently, and that generates a lot of fear. Some people want to annihilate them. Some people want to lock them up. Some people want to register them. Some of them become superheroes. Some of them become monsters. I find that particularly germane. Are we going to accept the people who are different or are we going to wipe them out?”

Funny how if you replace the word “Inhumans” with “mutants,” his description of the backdrop of X-Men comics would be identical.
This was my point a year ago when I started this thread. Inhumans are definitely MCU's excuse for mutants.

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

the inhumans things is extremely irritating. marvel is trying too hard with it. they want it to replace the xmen series so badly to the point that they have destroyed magneto's family tree. thankfully we have other countless alternate realties where wanda and Prieto are still the children of magneto.

The Inhumans have existed in Marvel comics since 1965.

Yes they have but they have never been popular or have ever made a huge impact. marvel has been pushing the series so badly now.I am not one of those people that buy how the twins are no longer mutants or magneto's kids. its is just too outlandish. it also shows marvel desperation to make inhuman popular. its failing for me

While they've clearly never been as popular as the Avengers or the X-Men, I think "never been popular or have ever made a huge impact" is untrue. As guest characters in Fantastic Four, which is where they began, I believe that they've been enormously popular, especially Crystal and Medusa.

And Lockjaw is guesting in Ms. Marvel right now.

Anyway, I welcome the development of the Inhumans in the MCU. Frankly, when it comes to comic book heroes on the big and small screens, the more the merrier, as far as I'm concerned.

The MCU has no Magneto to destroy the family tree of.

And Wanda and Pietro got by as characters just fine for 15 years before it was "revealed" (retconned) that they were Magneto's children.

It would be ironic if that's why they're doing it since the evidence suggests Wanda and Pietro in the movies are not Inhumans.

they destroyed his family three in the comics as well. they were magneto kids first by bloodline and proper story. a bloodline that has retconned consistent to every marvel alternate realities.

this is my main problem with marvel. they are destroying a lot of their storylines because it does not fit the mcu films.I found that very stupid. since when has comic story mattered so much to comic films.

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

But are they destroying it to match the films. I'll put it in spoiler code, but I'll submit they aren't matching:
