fb share tweet share

Inhumans is well known among comic book fans, but as far as more mainstream audiences go, it’s not the biggest title out there. Almost everyone already had at least a passing familiarity with the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, and the Hulk, even before the movies, but Inhumans falls into a similar category as Guardians of the Galaxy. While it’s an important part of the world, it wasn’t one casual fans were too acquainted with. Now that there is an Inhumans movie on the way, Marvel is preparing to do some work to familiarize people with the title, and that begins in this new promo for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

Just so you know, if you’re not caught up with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there are some potential spoilers.

Vin Diesel Teases A Role In This Non-Guardians Marvel Franchise

fb share tweet share

Vin DieselVin Diesel is not shy about letting the world know that he wants to be a part of a great many comic book movies. By many accounts, this is how he wound up with the role of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, by saying he was in a Marvel movie enough times that it magically became true. Now that it’s going to be a while before he’s in another Guardians film, he’s back to his usual ways, once again hinting that he could be involved in, or at least really wants to appear in Marvel’s upcoming Inhumans.

As usual, this latest tease comes from Diesel’s Facebook page, where he posted a picture of himself photoshopped over the words, “Are you Inhuman?” This isn’t the first time he’s pulled a similar stunt, as back in August he, once again via social media, posted a photo of Groot with the line, “I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I’m Inhuman.” And this was well before Marvel made that massive Phase 3 announcement that let the world know to expect an Inhumans movie on November 2, 2018.

Marvel’s Phase 3 Includes Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Updates, Inhumans, And More

MarvelDisney has been working to expand the scope and breadth of their Star Wars universe, Warner Bros. and DC Comics have taken great strides laying out the roadmap for their properties, both TV and film, but when it comes to this kind of sprawling, everything-is-connected world building, you’re going to have to do something spectacular to unseat Marvel. Especially because they just upped their game yet again, announcing their plans for Phase 3 of their Cinematic Universe, and there’s quite a lot for sci-fi fans to start tenting our fingers about. This includes a new release date for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (sooner rather than later), a two-part Avengers 3 that takes on the “Infinity War” arc, Captain Marvel, and the Inhumans.

The comic book studio just unleashed a landslide on the world, revealing titles and dates all the way into 2019. And this doesn’t even include the likes of Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron. And given that DC recently announced their own expansion plan, and reports and rumors that this Marvel event only just came together like a week ago, it’s easy to see this as a giant fuck you to their main rival.
