New Details on Story and Characters for Marvel’s Inhumans TV Series, Plus New Cast Photo
Marvel is in a roll with its TV series as of late. The Defenders just received a new trailer, nearly a month after the release of the elevator teaser for the show. The series so far have been quite dark, it’s not much of a stretch to imagine The Defenders will be as well. Such is the case with most of the shows Marvel has produced, including the upcoming Marvel’s Inhumans TV series. New details have come to light about the upcoming show, including an image of the cast in costume as well as story details given by showrunner, Scott Buck.
Seen here is the cast of Marvel’s Inhumans (left to right): Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Ken Leung as Karnak, Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, and Iwan Rheon as Maximus. This first photo of the cast offers up the characters in costumes resembling their comic book counterparts, though the iconic masks of Black Bolt and Medusa are missing. This list of characters holds an impressive amount of power, naturally fans will want to see those powers in action. In an interview, Buck explains that we will see the abilities in action when the situation calls for it, similar to how Marvel has approached other shows such as Iron Fist or Luke Cage.
We approach these all as real people who just happen to have these abilities, so they’re all very grounded people. We try to write them as real as possible, and then have fun with the powers when we can. We want their powers to seem like a very natural part of their personality.”
Seeing the characters interact and develop with each other will be a treat. Black Bolt’s power, for example, is his destructive ability which is unleashed by using his voice. His interactions with characters as the leader of the Inhumans will be interesting to watch due to his usually silent nature in the comics. There is also the potential for some incredible VFX, such as Medusa’s prehensile hair.
The story will focus on the Inhumans at a “critical juncture where everything they’ve ever known is at risk” and with the inclusion of Maximus, Black Bolt’s brother, it’s possible fans will see some sort of power struggle similar to the comics. The show is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will be affected by events that have happened with past shows and movies, though crossovers episodes with Marvel’s Agents of Shield are unlikely right now.
While the show isn’t technically a movie, it will be debuting in an IMAX theater. The first 8 episodes will also air on ABC this Fall. Is it better to have a TV series of Marvel’s Inhumans, or would it have been more approrpiate as a movie? Let us know your thoughts on the Inhumans and more in the comments section below.
