Rejoice Marvel fans!
Collision is reporting the completion of the screenplay by Joe Robert Cole, who came out of the same Marvel writer’s program that allowed Nicole Perlman to kickstart development of Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel is reportedly ready to present the script to film makers. Now, the script will probably be edited once a studio and a director get their hands on it, but considering who is writing it, it should be a success.
Inhumans is another batch of cosmic characters from Marvel. Relatively unknown to the mainstream media, many doubters question how the film will be received by the masses. However, Guardians of the Galaxy is a clear indication of how Marvel’s good reputation and marketing can transform considerably obscure characters into the must see blockbuster of the summer. Here is how Slash Film describes The Inhumans mythos:
The Inhumans are a race of evolutionarily-advanced beings, created from humans by the Kree, one of the chief alien races in Marvel’s continuity, to fight another alien race, the Skrulls. It’s big-time Jack Kirby sci-fi wackiness, with a character roster that includes Black Bolt, a ruler who never speaks because his voice is so powerful, and a giant dog called Lockjaw.
At one point, the idea of putting Lockjaw on screen would have seemed too far out for a mainstream film. But that was before Guardians, and the huge popularity of Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
Not much is known, other than the script appears to finished. We will post news as it becomes available.
