The geniuses at Marvel Studios are getting serious about their unstated goal of eventually giving every character in the Marvel Universe a movie (or vice versa). The latest revelation in this arena is The Inhumans, which is about a royal kingdom of super-powered being ruled by the benevolent (and completely mute) Black Bolt. Whoever they cast as Black Bolt better have a really strong chin - he won't even have to memorize any lines! Here's what the movie's supposed to be about, according to a memo at Avengers HQ:
"[A]liens who were put on Earth as sleeper cell aliens to eventually call back their race to take over the planet. Ultimately, the group of aliens fully assimilates and don’t want to cause war."

Production is in the very early stages, with the assignment being thrown out to writers, so obviously no news about casting or anything like that. Too bad he's been dead for half a century, because I think Buster Keaton would have made a fine Black Bolt. (via Badass Digest)
