Undeterred by vast indifference from the comics public, Ike Perlmutter’s lifelong dream of a filmed version of The Inhumans is still coming right for us.
Originally set to be a film that was to come out next year, Marvel’s Inhumans is instead now a television series on ABC, following in the footsteps of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter.
The series, which will debut its first two episodes on IMAX screens, will be showrun by Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck. Entertainment Weekly has just given us our first peek at the cast, which includes Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwaukor as Gorgon, and Isabelle Cornish as Crystal. Mike Moh is also on board as Triton, but he’s nowhere to be seen in the below picture:
The Beat’s take: Medusa’s wig looks EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE. Can’t wait to see that in Imax.
