Earlier this month, while doing press for Captain America: Civil War, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige talked about the rumors concerning the upcoming Inhumans film. If you’ll recall, over the past year, there have been plenty of rumors surrounding the project, the biggest stating that the film would ultimately be cancelled. This was something that Feige addressed during an interview with Collider, insisting that the film will definitely be made, but that it’d all come down to a matter of when it would happen. After all, the Inhumans film had a release date for July 12th, 2019, which would have only put a week between it and Indiana Jones 5, which Disney scheduled for July 19th, 2016 – which would have led to the studio competing against itself, and more than likely hurting the box office on both projects. So, the fact that Feige said we could expect the film to be delayed made sense.
Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it’s on right now. How far down it shuffles, I’m not sure yet.
Still, that doesn’t make the latest news surrounding the film any less surprising. In an interesting turn of events, it has just been announced that, as of now, Inhumans does not have a release date. Typically, when Marvel shuffles release dates, they have a new release date ready to be announced – as we’ve seen with the Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ant-Man & The Wasp scheduling adjustments. That isn’t the case with Inhumans, at least not currently.
Disney/Marvel has undated “Inhumans,” which was previously set for July 12, 2019. Now it has no release date.

Here’s to hoping they announce a new date sometime soon because I’m still holding out hope for an Inhumans film.
