The Inhumans Marvel Timeline

The Inhumans made their first reveal to the MCU during the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 episode, "What They Become", introducing Agent Skye (AKA Daisy Johnson / Quake in the comics) as an Inhuman. (First appearance, Secret War #2 (2004). Click for values.)

It's also revealed that Raina, the Girl in the Flower Dress, is also an Inhuman. At the end of the episode, Skye and Raina are exposed to Terrigen Mist, causing them to undergo Terrigenesis and develop superhuman powers.

As a result of the Terrigenesis, Daisy Johnson becomes Quake (she isn't an Inhuman in the comics), who can create powerful vibrations and tremors with her mind. As Raina steps out of her Terrigenesis cocoon, her eyes turn yellow, she grows claws and her skin changes.

We're not sure which hero or villain Raina will be – possibly Tigra (who isn't an Inhuman either), or maybe she'll be someone completely new for the show.

A few episodes before "What They Become", the blue-skinned Kree alien-race are introduced. It's revealed that they experimented on primitive humans, resulting in the Inhumans. It's a quick backstory, but we all know Marvel likes to build upon small details slowly.

Inhumans Movie Storyline

It's sad but true – a lot of Marvel movie and TV fans have never read a single comic. While the introduction of the Inhumans in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a big deal for some fans, others don't realize the impact it will have.

For fans of the Marvel movies but not the TV shows, some kind of Inhumans backstory is going to need to be established. Possibly through flashbacks, we could see the Kree experimenting on humans and a brief history of the Inhumans, their isolation, and their struggle to find a place to live.

The Inhuman Royal Family will probably be a main focus of the film. Mainly, we hope to see:

  • Black Bolt 
  • Medusa
  • Ahura Boltagon
  • Gorgon 
  • Karnak 
  • Crystal 

Potential villains in the Inhumans film could include:

  • Thanos (who made an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy and will be in Avengers: Infinity War)
  • Ronan the Accuser (a Kree alien)
  • Maximus the Mad
  • Skrull Aliens

The Marvel Universe is expanding faster than our own, and the Disney-owned studio is creating more content to keep fans happy for years to come.

Calling its plan for 2016 and beyond "Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)", Marvel laid out the road map for their entrainment schedule, including an upcoming Inhumans movie. 

Speaking in late 2014, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said: "November 2, 2018 will introduce dozens of characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We really do believe the Inhumans can be a franchise or a series of franchise unto themselves.

"They have dozens of powers and an amazing social structure. With our 20th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we wanted to continue to refine what that universe is about."

Despite the above stated release date, Marvel has confirmed that we won't see an Inhumans film until July 12, 2019. Bummer.

We believe that at least a few of these Inhumans and villains will make an appearance in the film – how could you have an Inhumans movie without them?

Based on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel seems to be taking some liberty with the Inhumans story, so there could be some surprises.

Cast of the Inhumans Movie

Potential directors of the Inhumans movie include James Gunn, who directed last year's surprise hit, Guardians of the Galaxy

The casting of Inhumans has been kept completely secret, and we only have a few clues. We aren't sure whether Chloe Bennet, who plays Skye / Daisy Johnson, or Ruth Negga, who plays Raina, will be featured in the Inhumans film.

Action star Vin Diesel hasn't been hiding his potential involvement in the upcoming Inhumans film, first cleverly stating on Facebook "I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I'm Inhuman". Later, he posted a picture of himself wearing an Inhumans T-shirt. 

Could Vin Diesel be starring as Black Bolt, the silent King of the Inhumans? Another character option for him could be Gorgon, the bull-legged, earthquake creating cousin of Black Bolt.

According to IMDB, Marvel newcomer Joe Robert Cole is writing the screenplay.

Because of Adam McKay's work on the Ant-Man movie screenplay, and statements he said about directing a future Marvel film, he may be on tap for directing Inhumans. However, McKay's leanings towards comedy films make this pairing questionable.

Other potential Inhumans directors include:

  • James Gunn (Thor: The Dark World; Both Guardians of the Galaxy movies)
  • Russo Brothers (Both Captain America movies)
  • Scott Derickson (Doctor Strange

What the Inhumans Marvel Movie Means for Comic Books

The Inhumans have a long yet sporadic history in the Marvel Universe.

First appearing in Fantastic Four #45 (1965), the Inhumans comics are going to see a huge rise in popularity as the movie release gets closer and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. reveals more of their back story.
