Marvel's Inhumans Is Still Happening, But Later Than Expected
Ever since the Inhumans storyline began on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there have been persistent rumors that the Inhumans movie would be scrapped, since the heroes are already showing up on the TV side of things. But now, Kevin Feige confirmed that the film is still on the docket, although it likely won't drop on the planned release date in 2019. 

In a recent interview with Collider, Feige explained that the plans for Inhumans had changed with the addition of several movies to the schedule, including the Spider-Man solo movie and Ant-Man and the Wasp:

Opening quote
"Since we made our initial phase three announcement, we added Spider-Man, which was a big joyous coup for us. We added Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was a big fun continuation of that story for us. Walt Disney Company has announced an Indiana Jones film for right around that same time. So I think it will shuffle off the current date that it's on right now. How far down it shuffles, I'm not sure yet."
Closing quote

So the Inhumans movie will likely be pushed off for a second time (it was already delayed from its original 2018 release date for Ant-Man and the Wasp), but it's definitely still happening. When asked whether the fact that Inhumans are being explored on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. factored into the decision-making surrounding the project, Feige said, "No, it's a question of when."

This makes much more sense, especially since none of the most well-known Inhumans (Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, etc) have shown up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Plus, it seems that Inhumans are essentially taking the place of X-Men mutants in the MCU, which means that Marvel is more likely to release an X-Men movie to compete with Fox. 

Inhumans is currently slated for July 12, 2019, but keep an eye out for a schedule change sometime soon.
