Vin Diesel Still Wants ‘The Inhumans’ To Get a Film Adaptation

Although The Inhumans was announced as a Marvel Cinematic Universe film years ago, it’s now officially moved to television. With the series starting this fall and the first two episodes being screened in IMAX theaters, fans are getting excited.

With the show on its way, many have been wondering about the fate of the movie. Vin Diesel, who was originally set to play Black Bolt, commented on this in an interview with Screen Rant.

“I think Marvel should never—I don’t think Marvel should abandon their opportunity to make a film out of it [The Inhumans]. I think it could be a huge, huge saga, and if I had more time I would go over to Marvel and have that very conversation. But I think it would be a big mistake for Marvel to abandon their ambitions or their objective or their goals of making it into a film, because it would make such a cool universe.”

Although Diesel still wants the film to get made, chances of that happening are pretty slim. With that said, though, there’s still hope when Kevin Feige is in charge.


In recent news regarding The Inhumans show, Roel Reine was just announced as the director of the series’ first two episodes. Reine is known for his work on Black Sails, the hit television series that preludes Treasure Island.

So far, information on the cast of this project is unknown. However, since the show’s premiere is less than nine months away, it won’t be long until we get to know who the next on-screen super-team is.
