Back when Marvel was getting ready to announce its Phase 2 of films, there were some rumblings that a film based on the Inhumans could be in the works. Nothing ever came of that and one could speculate that Guardians of the Galaxy was the film that was rumored. However, there comes news from Marvel that an Inhumans movie is coming in the form of a new animated feature that will release in April of this year as a part of the Marvel Knights collection.
The film will be chock full of bonus features, as well as a “graphic rich cover” and a “a unique comic book style plastic sleeve that bridges the comic book to DVD concept.” The DVD will retail for $14.97 when it releases in a few months. Below is a synopsis of the feature.
The Inhumans have always been one of Marvel’s most enduring oddities. A race of genetic outsiders, they live secluded in their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. Even stranger, their genetic mutations are self-endowed; each Inhuman, as a coming-of-age ritual, endures exposure to the Terrigen Mists, a strange substance that imparts unearthly powers–some extraordinary, some monstrous.
But now the kingdom of Attilan is under attack from without and within. Can the Royal Family, led by Black Bolt, repel the foreign invaders who blast at their outer defenses, as well as the internal threat of Black Bolt’s insane brother, Maximus the Mad?
Among the special features, you’ll find a look at the Inhumans with writer Paul Jenkins, Marvel’s Joe Quesada and Supervising Producer Kalia Cheng. The film will run about 132 minutes.
So Marvel fans, will you be picking this one up? It’s been some time since Marvel has released an animated feature as it has been concentrating on the several TV series that have proven to be successful.
