Now that it's official that this show has been cancelled (not a surprise to me, especially since I never made it to the last episode) do you feel that they can still be integrated into the MCU movies? I think that they deserve a chance, but done better. I would love to see Lockjaw mix it up with some the other characters in the movies.

If the Fox deal goes through the Inhumans will become nothing but a failed attempt at creating something that could stand on its own. Mutants, mutants and more mutants will dominate.

Marvel had their shot at the Inhumans and blew it

I bailed on it originally too, but then I did a catch-up on the last episode and made it to the end. So many individual aspects were done well like Lockjaw, but... I'm worried the new Cloak & Dagger series might also fall flat.

It really is a shame... The Inhumans deserve the same BIG screen treatment Guardians Of The Galaxy received.

Hopefully it'll happen in a few years.

Dead property walking.  That Feige passed on it as a motion picture franchise and gave it to the television side of things, it's as done as done can be.  Too much stink from a failed film launch and then a failed one-and-done series.  Sorry, but this ship has sailed.

Can't help but agree will everyone here. For some reason the comics, Inhumans, Eternals, and even Guardians of the Galaxy, have never attracted me too strongly.

After GotG came out and was such a success, I had hopes Inhumans could be done in a way that worked and suck me in as a new fan.

But once Spider-Man entered the MCU, it seems Inhumans had to get chopped. 

I was hoping the TV show would be interesting, but we all know how bad that went. They clearly didn't have the CGI budget needed to make Inhumans work, especially Medusa's hair, perhaps the hardest thing to render realistically.

I'm still hoping for a S.H.I.E.L.D. crossover. But the characters were either so off (Black Bolt) or so depowered (your favorite Inhuman here) and I think that  "Inhumans" was kinda beaten before it began.

I do think it deserves a shot again... but I also think it needs a little more legacy treatment.

I only managed to get through the first 3 episodes of Inhumans before giving up on it.

It was always meant to be a movie-level property, and it was ill-fated from the moment Ike Perlmutter lost his power struggle with Kevin Feige and took it with him to TV.

The execution--not the characters--was the problem, and given what Marvel has accomplished so far, rebooting a (fairly recent) failed television attempt into a successful movie franchise seems completely achievable.

If Kevin Feige and his team--with the support of Bob Iger-- were invested in THE INHUMANS, they could very successfully relaunch it within the MCU. And I hope they do.

So far, the movies and the TV shows have not contradicted each other.  If the Inhumans move to the movies, they would have to be recast/redone/rebooted.  (Not just because of their own show but because of all the references in AGENTS OF SHIELD.)  Not that Feige couldn't/wouldn't do it, but I think Marvel is trying to avoid multiple live action versions of the same characters--unlike DC.

Now if Feige gets to bring the FF into the fold, I think the Sub-Mariner, the Negative Zone, and, yes, the Inhumans would be great for their first three movies.

So since I love wild flights of fancy... Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Inhumans, and the Defenders against Hydra, the Super Adaptiod, and the merciless menace of... MODOK!
