Spoiler Alert for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness…
Now that Marvel Studios has shown how cool Black Bolt from the Inhumans can be (as seen in the most recent Doctor Strange film) with a comic book accurate costume, rumors have started to swirl around the internet that a reboot of the Inhumans (done right this time) could be coming to Disney+.
Per Giant Freakin’ Robot:
This is pretty important news, given that we just got our first official sighting of an Inhuman in the MCU for quite some time. Our scoop that Anson Mount’s Black Bolt, King of Attilan, would appear in the recentDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was confirmed recently, which means that Marvel Studios Kevin Feige is open to the group of Terrigen Mist-empowered superbeings reappearing in some capacity. An Inhumans reboot would seem like the next logical step.
As importantly for an Inhumans reboot as Anson Mount showing back up as the vocally-talented Black Bolt to pass judgment on Doctors Strange (Doctor Stranges?) is Marvel Studios’ increased use of Disney+ to launch new characters in the wider MCU. So far, the Disney+ streaming platform has given us the Hailee Steinfeld version of Hawkeye, the Oscar Isaac Moon Knight, Anthony Mackie fully embracing being the next Captain America, the imminent new Ms. Marvel, and with the upcoming She-Hulk series with Tatiana Maslany, perhaps our next gamma-irradiated superhero. The current MCU strategy appears to be to use the platform to test out characters without having to go for the risk of a full theatrical movie (or shoehorning them into some other character’s solo film), so the Inhumans reboot being on Disney+ is pretty on point.
Inhumans was originally supposed to be a Phase 3 film but was quickly swiped by Marvel Television at the time and was a spin-off of Agents of Shield (both are no longer considered part of the MCU continuity).
The show was a low budget embarrassment to the MCU and lasted for only one pitiful season.
What do you think would you like to see Mount as Black Bolt again in a new big budget Inhumans series? Let us know in the comments.
