Inhumans remains the last film in Marvel‘s currently announced schedule. Initially planned to open before the second part of Avengers: Infinity War, it is now set to debut after that film and possibly open another phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige recently told Collider the film may “shuffle off” its current July 12th, 2019 release date due to Disney’s plan to release a fifth Indiana Jones film on July 19th release that same year. “How far down it shuffles,” he added. “I’m not sure yet.”
Though the Marvel movies are traditionally summer fare, Doctor Strange and next year’s Thor: Ragnarok both have November openings, suggesting a regular slot for an early holiday release may be in Inhumans‘ future. Thor: The Dark World also opened in November, so the holiday release is not unprecedented.
But Feige also reiterated the studio’s commitment to bringing Black Bolt, Medusa and Lockjaw to the screen, saying the release of Inhumans is “a question of when.”
Inhumans will open sometime in 2019 or 2020.
