I was one of the many people that was disappointed when it was announce that Inhumans would no longer be a feature film but instead a new TV show. The Inhumans race had already been introduced on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and there was some reports of the relationship between the small and big screen departments . But it seems Marvel are really pushing the boat out for this show and I really like the fact that the first two episodes were shot with IMAX cameras and will debut in IMAX theaters in September.
Call me crazy but I’m slightly concerned that superhero genre is going to be over saturated on TV now. We already have Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, The Marvel Netflix shows, Gotham on Fox, Legion on FX and the DC heroes on The CW network and we are getting this year Runaways on Hulu, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger on the Freeform TV network, the X-Men TV shows on Fox plus Black Lighting on the The CW. Maybe it’s all too much?
Inhumans will be broadcast on ABC in the US and will likely be on SKY in the UK but it hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Scott Buck (Marvel’s Iron Fist) serves as showrunner, and the cast also includes Anson Mount as Black Bolt, 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.
Here’s the official synopsis for Inhumans:
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 theatres 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.
