Marvel's other famous race of superpowered humans is unlikely to ever appear in the MCU, especially after Kamala Khan's powers were retconned in 'Ms. Marvel'.

Millions of Marvel fans are eagerly awaiting the upcoming appearance of mutants in the MCU, desperate to see new versions of Wolverine, Magneto and Xavier, but aside from avid comic book fans, no one has much desire to see the debut of the Inhumans. And it looks like that just isn't going to happen, as Kevin Feige moves further and further away from Marvel Studios' early decision to include these powerful half-human half-Kree in its universe. Plans for their solo blockbuster have been scrapped, and Kamala Khan's origins have been changed to those of a Djinn.

I remember back when Inhumans was supposed to be a movie and they had rumored Vin Deisel to play Blackbolt. I wanted that so bad so he could voice one character with only one line and perform as another character with practically no dialog.

But why is this the case? Actually, the truth lies in the logistics – the Inhumans movie was developed as the ultimate answer to Fox's 'X-Men', and after the studio was bought by Disney, Inhumans became simply irrelevant. The same thing happened in the original Marvel Comics: Inhumans became major players in the early 2010s, constantly getting new solo comics and crossovers. But after Johnathan Hickman's 'X-Men' reboot became a huge success at the end of the decade, the mutant team permanently sidelined the Inhumans.

"That was tied up with the comics and ike perlmutter wanting to sideline mutants and promote inhumans instead. Because fox owned the mutants film rights. Feige was never a fan of the idea. It all came to a head and perlmutter and his creative committee were taken off marvel films and Feige got full control and bye bye inhumans." – /Fregraham.

Despite this depressing news, fans are still grateful that at least some Inhumans, like Anson Mount's Black Bolt, managed to make their MCU debut.

"No sense wondering what might have been. At least Blackbolt's appearance in MoM means there's a change the MCU 616 might still get something instead of the failed show." – /xnails7x.
