ABC Studios has released the new trailer for Inhumans. The first two episodes of Inhumans will be shown globally in IMAX theaters starting on 1st September and running for two weeks. I’m confused where this is going to go and how it will fit in the shared universe with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and the much larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
OK… first the bad news I think this looks very disappointing and it’s going to be a misfire for Marvel Television and their non Netflix TV shows. It’s a shame that the original planned movie in Phase Three of the MCU didn’t get made. The good news I liked the look of Lockjaw (the teleporting dog) and I did laugh at the end.
It remains to be seen which UK broadcaster will broadcast this but we’ll let you know when we hear something.
Here’s the full synopsis for the series:
“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.
