We’ve come to the conclusion that Vin Diesel’s favorite pastime is to tease fans with upcoming roles for comic book movies. He previously had geeks guessing when he was negotiating with Marvel to star as the voice of Groot in the smash hit “Guardians of the Galaxy” currently showing in cinemas. The “Fast and Furious” star has blogs buzzing again with his latest teaser for a role in Marvel’s “The Inhuman“. We were also surprised to see “The Inhuman” rotating on multiple blogs over the past couple of days, with report suggesting that the feature film has a screenplay written by Joe Robert Cole. Stuck in development hell since 2012, “The Inhuman” might finally see the light of day!
According to Collider, Cole’s script received the double thumbs up and now they are headhunting for a suitable director. Rumor has it that Marvel will handle the project the same way they dealt with the “Guardians of the Galaxy” production; drafted by Nicole Perlman first before helmer James Gunn included his finishing touches. It makes sense to stick to a winning formula with Gunn’s “Guardians” raking in approximately $325,7 million in its second week since its debut on August 1, 2014.
Diesel’s teaser posted on Facebook raises further suspicions about the long-gestating “Inhuman” project. He posted:
“I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I’m Inhuman… Haha.”
Furthermore, Marvel’s head Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly back in July 2012 that fans could expect an “X-Men-style ensemble, a la The Avengers” for both the “Guardians” and “Inhumans”. So, in all likelihood, Cole’s script should include some neatly choreographed team battles featuring the band of heroes.
“The Inhumans” also feature a group of unlikely heroes who band together to fight evil forces. Abandoned by their creator, the alien Kree, the misfits formed their own society which include Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, and Lockjaw.
Check out some additional details for “The Inhumans” courtesy of Comicvine.com:
The result of Kree experimentation on humans using Terrigen Mist, The Inhumans are a race of super powered beings who live in isolation and do not trust humans.
The creation of The Inhumans was apparently twofold — to investigate possible ways of circumventing their own evolutionary stagnation, and to create a powerful mutant race of soldiers for use against the Skrulls. However, although their experiments were successful in creating a strain of humanity with extraordinary abilities, the Kree abandoned their experiment for reasons which are not yet clear.
The Inhumans went on to form a society of their own, which thrived in seclusion from the rest of humanity and developed advanced technology. Experiments with the mutagenic Terrigen Mist gave them various powers, but also caused lasting genetic damage and deformities. This led to a long-term selective breeding program to try to mitigate the effects of these mutations. Their city Attilan has frequently been relocated and, as of 2005 stories, rests in the oxygen-bearing Blue Area of the Moon.
