An "Inhumans," Show is Coming to ABC AKA The Final Nail in the Coffin for an, "Inhumans," Movie Has Occurred

I discussed a short time ago how it looked like Marvel was trying to quietly kill the, "Inhumans," movie and it seems the final nail has been put in the metaphorical coffin because what, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." started when the Inhumans were first discussed is now being finished by ABC and Marvel as an, "Inhumans," television show featuring  Black Bolt is officially in the works. The Marvel-themed television shows of course take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe films don't really take place in the television-world...if that makes any sense. You see, the television shows will draw from the movies, but the movies never, ever, mention the T.V. shows, lest it dilute the brand (an ironic statement considering how many movies there are now, but yeah).

If it is any consolation for people who were dying to see an, "Inhumans," movie happen (all three of you) the show will premiere in IMAX theaters to show off its fancy-budget that will surely impress everyone with great special effects before being promptly forgotten just as, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been by most people--because at this point it is basically just the Marvel Netflix shows people care about outside of the movies (unless they really love the Robbie Reyes incarnation of the Ghost Rider).
Sorry, but we just don't care about you much, Black Bolt.
This arguably lends a bit more credence to my theory that Marvel and Fox are getting along better as well, because if Marvel is giving-up on an Inhumans-focused movie perhaps we will be seeing some Mutants/X-Men in the Marvel-Universe before too long? I mean, they've already got some character-swapping going in terms of rights, and that's one of the first steps to earnest collaboration (just look at how Marvel and Sony slowly defrosted their relations and now bucket-loads of money is being made).

In conclusion, the "Inhumans," movie is dead, long-live the, "Inhumans," television show (or at least it'll maybe go a season), and Marvel and Fox maybe are getting ever-so-slightly cozier as time progresses. As with all things, we can only wait and see what the future holds.
