“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Vin Diesel is really terrible at secrets. The actor, who plays walking, talking tree Groot in the movie, may have spoiled one of Marvel’s upcoming movies.
In a posting on Facebook, he writes, “I get the strange feeling Marvel thinks I’m Inhuman … Haha.” To those who knows a lot about Marvel’s comic history, that’s a pretty big tease that an adaptation of “The Inhumans” is in the works.
Now, Collider is reporting that the studio is moving forward with the project. According to the site, Marvel has a script they like from writer Joe Robert Cole and they plan to approach filmmakers with it. That’s how they handled “Guardians of the Galaxy,” with a script written by Nicole Perlman. Eventually, James Gunn agreed to direct the film and did his own draft.
The comic series is about a group of homo-sapiens who were experimented on by the Kree, the alien race Ronan the Accuser belongs to. Those experimented on started their own society once abandoned by the Kree, with Black Bolt becoming their king. His royal family consists of Medusa, Karnak, Gordon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad and their dog Lockjaw.
Marvel has several announced release dates without titles attached to them, so “The Inhumans” could easily slide into one of them. Chances are it’ll be a while before they confirm the movie, though.
