Inhumans movie on the way from Marvel, release dated

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

In a special live blog event the Marvel Studios team today announced a new movie, titled Inhumans, will be released on Nov. 2, 2018.

The Inhumans, which include Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal and Lockjaw among others, is a storyline that Marvel first introduced in Fantastic Four #45 back in December of 1965. The plot began millions of years ago when the alien race, known as the Kree, established a base on Uranus and began to experiment on the inhabitants of our earth, creating the Inhumans. No word on whether Bova Ayrshire, the evolved cow, will make an appearance in the movie.

Fans will recognize their role in the greater pantheon of the Marvel universe, but details on how the Inhumans storyline will dovetail into that of Guardians and Avengers storyline is hazy at best.

"November 3, 2018 will introduce dozens of characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe," said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. "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."
