The virtual “civil war” between Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige and eccentric billionaire Ike Perlmutter continues as, following the rumor of the Inhumans movie being cancelled, now it’s said the Netflix Iron Fist series may be on the chopping block.
The rumor comes once again from Bleeding Cool who apparently spoke to a few tipsy Marvel Comics/TV employees at this past weekend’s NYCC.
According to the report, Marvel Studios gets the final say and sign-off on how Iron Fist appears, with it said the “show may be killed with such procedural notes.” While the report doesn’t mention it, it could be possible Marvel Studios may want Iron Fist in their own movies. Iron Fist was/is supposed to be its own Netflix series and a part of the Netflix Defenders series along with Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
Regarding the cancellation of the Inhumans movie, a few sites have contradicted the info, but BC is sticking by their own sources (again speculated to be in the Marvel Comics/TV division) stating the info is coming out of Kevin Feige’s camp. Another site also states if Black Bolt and the Royal Family first appear on the Agents Of SHIELD TV series, that it will mean the movie is a definite goner.
It’s further suggested Marvel Studios is “de-prioritizing” Inhumans with the excuse for dropping it stated to be that they could never find the right people for it.
