Game Of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon is joining Marvel’s Inhumans series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Rhein is best known for his role as Ramsay Bolton on HBO’s Game Of Thrones. He’s also had appearances in the series Misfits and Vicious.
“Maximus is a complex character,” says showrunner Scott Buck. “Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment.”
Maximus is known as the little brother of Black Bolt, who’s king of the Inhumans. For several years, he remains loyal to his family, but he longs to be their leader. In fact, he has even sought to usurp Black Bolt, and he’s been successful at times.
Marvel TV producer Jeph Loeb agrees with Buck’s view of Rheon. He states the actor is able “to be charming, roguish and still completely unexpectedly dangerous.” “We’re thrilled to have him on board,” says Loeb.
The Inhumans came on the scene in Marvel Comics’ Fantastic Four in 1965. They later became the subject of various series, but none of these did last long. As of today, the characters have become prominent players within the Marvel Universe. Recently, they’ve gone up against the X-Men.
The Inhumans will premiere in IMAX theatres on Labor Day. The rest of the series will air on the ABC network.
