Marvel has just dropped a first look at our Inhuman Royal Family set to make their debut this September.
While the casting of the characters have been generally garnered positive response from fans, especially the casting of Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad, this picture received very polarizing response. Not many are fans of the leather look as well as Medusa’s very odd looking hair – and I have to agree. Black Bolt and Medusa are the Inhuman King and Queen of Attilan, and while their casting were great, this first image very disappointing.
The series will start Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Ken Leung as Karnak, Isabelle Cornish is Crystal, Iwan Rheon is Maximus, Mike Moh is Triton, Sonya Balmores is Auran, and even Lockjaw is confirmed to be in the show!
With a few set photos already leaked, the show looks like it is going to amazing. Despite the lack-luster outfits, the show could potentially have an explanation as to why they are wearing this costumes – perhaps to fit in?
Currently filming in Hawaii, the series will center around the the Inhuman Royal Family with the synopsis that reads:
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. So, this puts to rest any speculation that Hawaii would be doubling for Atillan on the show. Instead, we’re getting a decidedly Earth-based (and perhaps more TV budget friendly) approach to the team. On the other hand, the first two episodes are getting a theatrical release (more on that in a minute) so we may get some of the more “out there” big set elements before the team comes to Earth.
The first two episodes and several other scenes will be shot entirely using IMAX cameras and will screen in IMAX theaters for two weeks in September before the series airs on ABC on September 26, 2017. Many fans are hoping that the series will be closely tied to the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or maybe even cross over with other Marvel shows, namely Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., in the future. The series has been dubbed as an “unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience” which “highlights Disney/ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach“.
Marvel’s Inhumans will hit theaters starting September 1, 2017 and the series will air on ABC on September 26, 2017.
