Kevin Feige says Adam McKay will helm a Marvel film, talks ‘Inhumans’

During some promotion for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Exec Kevin Feige confirmed that writer/director Adam McKay will find a spot in the Marvel Universe, likely helming a future film.

“Adam McKay is in the running for everything. Adam McKay is a great, great writer and director,” said Feige to Collider.

Inhumanslogo“He did an amazing pass on the Ant-Man draft with Paul Rudd for us, and I didn’t know him before then. And we got to know him through that and liked him very much, and have met with him a number of times trying to find something else, so we’ve talked about a lot of characters with him.”

Collider continues, but didn’t close the “quotes” from Feige, but here’s the rest:

The remaining films in Phase Three that don’t have a director are Captain MarvelBlack Panther, and Inhumans. It would be great if a woman directed Captain Marvel, and a black filmmaker directed Black Panther, but there’s no mandate that the gender and race, respectively, have to match up with the protagonist. However,Inhumans still feels like a solid guess for where McKay would land if he decided to take on the movie.

They pressed for details on Inhumans, dropping the rumored logline: “About a group of people that are given powers only to discover they might be part of an alien race.”

Feige responded, “Well I’d say that’s relatively fair, but that’s not official. I’ve never seen that as an official logline.”

The Inhumans were created by alien experiments on primitive homo-sapiens.  The alien race behind the experiments, the Kree, abandoned their work and the Inhumans went on to form a society of their own, which is led by the king Black Bolt and his family Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, and the canine Lockjaw.


Here’s the list of the Phase 3 2018-19 schedule:

  • Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 – May 4, 2018
  • Black Panther – July 6, 2018
  • Captain Marvel – November 2, 2018
