This looks…to quote our fearless leader Heidi MacDonald…like a thing.
Marvel Television, capitalizing on the good vibes coming out of most Spider-Man: Homecoming reviews that are rolling out today, wants to remind you about their upcoming Marvel series that will debut in IMAX theaters just ahead of airing on ABC: Inhumans.
The series will bring to life the royal family of Attilan, or some approximation of them.
Ah, bland grey costume designs, and a fish out of water story set in Hawaii, just like Jack would have wanted. I was hoping the initial promo picture that was used to reveal the cast in costume was just a case of quick marketing just to get something out in the world. But the above trailer dashes those hopes a good deal, even Iwan Rheon sounds bored as Maximus, and he’s probably the most dynamic character.
“Marvel’s Inhumans” explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself. The legendary comic book series will be brought to life in a way that has never been done before, as a version of the first two episodes will be shown globally in IMAX theaters for a two-week period beginning September 1, 2017. ABC will then air the entirety of the series on the network, with additional exclusive content that can only been seen on ABC.
“Marvel’s Inhumans” stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Ken Leung as Karnak, Ellen Woglom as an undisclosed character, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Mike Moh as Triton.
The series is executive produced by Scott Buck, along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory with Buck serving as showrunner. Roel Reiné will direct the first two episodes. This series is a Marvel and IMAX project and is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
