On this edition of The Splash Page; The link between Inhumans and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. explained, how your local comic store could get Mark Millar, possible name for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, and new comic series follows the only man in the galaxy to lose the Millennium Falcon in a card game.

Kevin Feige Talks Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Relationship To Inhumans Movie

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been introducing the Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the Inhumans are also set to hit the big screen with their own movie in 2019. So what’s the balance between television and film when it comes to these characters?

Feige says that, where sometimes the television arm of Marvel is forced to work itself into the studio’s movie plans, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the one tasked with leading the way on the Inhumans, at least until we get closer to the movie’s release.
