A first look photo of Marvel’s upcoming Inhumans television series debut today courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
The photo reveals the royal family with Black Bolt (Anson Mount) and Medusa (Serinda Swan) featured front and center. Other members of the royal house include Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon and Ken Leung as Karnak just behind Black Bolt. Meanwhile, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, and Iwan Rheon as Maximus stand behind Crystal.
Fans of the comic book series will note the absence of teleporting bulldog Lockjaw. He will be in the series thanks to special effects. Triton is also missing, but will also appear in the program’s first 8-episode season.
Based on concepts introduced by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in the pages of The Fantastic Four, ABC’s Inhumans is described as a family drama set in the Inhuman city of Attilan. After an era of seclusion, Attilan’s secret existence is threatened. Meanwhile, Maximus plans a power struggle against Black Bolt.
And as viewers of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. know, Inhumans come with surprising and wondrous powers; meaning that power struggle will not be quiet.
The project was on the Marvel Cinematic Universe schedule for a number of years. But after Marvel Studios and Sony announced their partnership and a new Spider-Man movie, its prospects dimmed as it lost multiple release dates.
Iron Fist executive producer Scott Buck serves the same role when it comes to ABC on September 1st and IMAX theaters in the fall.
