Marvel seems to have their formula for pretty much everything they touch, and while their projects may not be for everyone they most certainly satisfy their avid followers and longtime comic book readers…for the most part. Everyone has their opinions and to absolutely appease everyone is unrealistic and nearly impossible. But nothing is preventing Marvel from trying. The studio’s newest TV series titled the Inhumans is set to hit the video/airwaves this coming September on ABC.
Inhumans are not necessarily popular among the typical common Marvel fans who haven’t been reading comics since their early ages. The Inhumans are a royal family who live off world (Earth) in a city named Attilan on the moon. The Royal Family consists of Black Bolt (played by Anson Mount) their leader, Medusa (Serinda Swan) who is the cousin of Black Bolt, and their brother Maximus (Game of Thrones alum Iwan Rheon) who doesn’t necessarily see things the way his brother the king does.
The TV series will see how the Royal Family interacts on their moon before Black Bolt is driven to Earth by Maximous’ machinations. Black Bolt has the ability to destroy a city with a mere whisper. Medusa has prehensile hair that can wreak havoc in a fight among many or display the gentlest touch. Other family members who also have superior powers and abilities are Ken Leung (Lost) who plays a priest and martial arts expert Karnak and Isabelle Cornish is Crystal, who has the power to control the elements. What is a Royal Family without their mascot, Lockjaw who is a canine that can teleport himself and others anywhere to avoid danger.
Other characters include Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Ellen Woglom as an undisclosed character, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Mike Moh as Triton. Rumors and speculation indicated that the series would not portray the characters with their powers as described and seen in the comics. Recent reports and assurance from the cast have calmed any worry that we will not see the real Inhumans. Their costumes have been altered from the original comics but still look appealing and suitable to current times.
The TV series Agents of SHIELD introduced the Inhumans back in season two – 2015 where agents began to encounter genetically altered beings by Terrigen Mists. It is unclear if the two series will share time together on screen but it is not out of the realm of possibility.
More recently the initial reactions to the series’ previews have been less than stellar but to be fair those version(s) being previewed were not the finished product and still had CGI mastering/touchup to perform and possibly additional editing of scenes. The IMAX premiere seems to have opened to mixed reviews as well but sources say that there may be additional final tweaks happening before the full Television release on ABC later in the month. We remain positive until proven otherwise.
The first episode of Inhumans premieres in IMAX theaters on September 1st. The series will debut on TV on September 29th.
