Marvel Studios is adding another television show to their line-up of programming that takes place inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But much like the ABC series Agents of SHIELD, it seems this show is going to have its own world to play it that is more tangential to the MCU rather than having any direct relationship to it.
Inhumans adapts the Marvel Comics title of the same name, focusing on a royal family of
mutants enhanced individuals who harbor certain special abilities. But when they have their lives uprooted by a military coup, they take sanctuary in Hawaii, where the may find the key to saving the planet.
Marvel and ABC brought an Inhumans Comic-Con panel to San Diego where they discussed the show and revealed some new details about what fans can expect from the latest comic book series to take place in the MCU.
First up, here’s the new San Diego Comic-Con trailer you might see playing with Dunkirk in IMAX theaters:
Inhumans stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Eme Ikwuakoras Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Ken Leung as Karnak, Ellen Woglom as an original character, a human named Louise, Sonya Balmores as Auran, and Mike Moh as Triton.
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 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.
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 of Marvel’s Inhumans 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 beginning on September 29, 2017.
