Despite Marvel announcing in late 2014 that Inhumans would be one of its Phase Three movies, it was met with delays and eventually removed from the schedule. Now Marvel is finally moving forward with the project on television instead. It was announced yesterday that an Inhumans TV series will air in fall 2017, with the first two episodes premiering in IMAX in September of that year first. Including the cancelled Agent Carter, this will be the third Marvel series that's airing on ABC, and the latest addition to the MCU's growing assortment of small screen adventures.

This announcement effectively kills any lingering chance of Inhumans being one of the Phase Four movies, but after giving the change some thought, moving to TV could be for the better. We'd be lying if we said we weren't curious to see how an Inhumans movie would have turned out, but this change in course will likely service these characters better, and here are the four biggest reasons why.

The Royal Family Finally Gets To Shine

Ever since the Inhumans were introduced in the mid-1960s, the Royal Family has served as the primary representative for their respective corner corner of the Marvel universe. Its lineup consists of king Black Bolt, queen Medusa, Crystal, Gorgon, Karnak, Triton and their large teleporting dog Lockjaw. Even with the release of Terrigen Mists across the globe in the comic book world and the Inhuman population immensely increasing, certain Family members have remained prominent. Now that Inhumans has been moved to TV, the wait is finally over to see these characters shine, as the series will follow the "the never-before-told epic adventure" of the Royal Family.

As much as the Inhumans in general have strengthened Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it's always felt weird that the Royal Family has received any attention, let alone a mention. Now these characters can finally debut after their originally-planned movie failed to take off, and while the Inhumans don't have the largest fanbase, the membership will certainly grow once the show premieres.
