Marvel’s Making An ‘Inhumans’ Movie.

Don’t fret, True Believers. Marvel’s bin of possible comic book adaptations is never, ever going to run dry. Why, just today it’s been discovered that they’re bringing the fucking Inhumans to the big screen.

It seems like an interesting choice for a movie. Certainly not the thing that lends itself easily to a typical comic book movie adaptation. Maybe that’s what we fucking need, something that is a bit less of a spectacle, more plot first? Oh, who am I kidding, the plot synopsis features:

aliens who were put on Earth as sleeper cell aliens to eventually call back their  race to take over the planet. Ultimately, the group of aliens fully assimilates and don’t want to cause war.

I remember reading Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee’s Inhumans mini..was it maxi…?…series for Marvel Knights back in the day. I’m certain that my raw, underdeveloped brain didn’t fully grasp what was going on. And for sure, I wasn’t looking for subtext or thematic strands. I do recall it being much darker than your typical comic book, and that stuck with me. If I ever have time – and I won’t – I’d love to reread it.
