MARVEL’S INHUMANS: Vin Diesel Thinks Abandoning Idea For Film Would Be A “Big Mistake”

– by Joseph Medina

Marvel’s The Inhumans is a project that’s gone through a lot of interesting incarnations. A few years back, the name popped up in a list of films in the then-upcoming Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some time ago, the film was rumored to be pulled from the Marvel slate, and soon after, it was officially pulled, though Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was careful to point out that the film could still happen at some point down the line.

In the time since the film’s removal, we’ve learned that it would actually be an ABC series — one that would be shot on IMAX and would have the first two episodes premiere in the large screen format. To further confuse things, it was also stated that the Inhumans series would have nothing to do with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., despite that show’s use of the Inhumans.

It’s all very confusing, and while the prospect of a premium TV show on ABC seems pretty great, it doesn’t make things any more palatable to the mainstream, who have a hard enough time following the Marvel continuity on the big screen.

But I digress.

With this turn from a film to a TV show, one would expect that a film isn’t likely in the cards. Well, in Hollywood, you never know what’s truly possible, and at least one big actor out there would like to see the Inhumans as a film: actor Vin Diesel. Diesel was the man who was heavily rumored to play the silent Inhuman Black Bolt in the eventual film, but with the film now turning into a TV show, that seems like an unlike prospect.

Here’s what Diesel had to say while speaking with Screen Rant:

“I think Marvel should never — I don’t think Marvel should abandon their opportunity to make a film out of it. 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.”

Indeed, Marvel is never one to close off any doors, and there have been reports stating that the idea they’re going forward with in the film is different from where they ended up in the TV show idea, so never say never.
