A new rumor going around suggest Marvel has plans to use The Illuminati in an upcoming Marvel project.
The Illuminati are made up of Professor X, Mr. Fantastic, Namor, Iron Man, Black Bolt, and Dr. Strange. The Illuminati first appears in New Avengers #7
A new rumor suggests that Marvel Studios is in the early stages of developing a project based on Marvel’s Illuminati. The Illuminerdi website reports having learned this information from a cast listing that currently only names Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige as a producer on the project, titled Marvel’s Illuminati. It’s unclear whether the project would be a film or a Disney+ series. Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven created the Illuminati idea during Bendis’ run writing Marvel’s Avengers titles. In the pages of New Avengers, Bendis revealed that a secret society made of some of Marvel’s iconic characters had been operating without oversight since the events of the Kree-Skrull War years ago. The New Avengers: The Illuminati miniseries revealed the group’s secret history.
