Marvel is gearing up for a couple of their biggest TV shows to date with The Defenders coming to Netflix this August and then Inhumans arriving just a few weeks after that. Originally planned as a movie, Inhumans was instead turned into an 8-episode event series with the first two episodes scheduled to debut first in IMAX theatres. Now this week they have unveiled a first look cast photo and a short teaser to build excitement, although some fans are reacting with disappointment instead. Hit the jump for your first look at Marvel’s Inhumans.
The cast from left to right is:
Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion, Extant) as Gorgon
Ken Leung (Lost) as Karnak
Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) as Black Bolt
Serinda Swan (Ballers, Graceland) as Queen Medusa
Isabelle Cornish (Australia Day, Puberty Blues) as Crystal
Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as Maximus
In particular, many people seem to be taking issue with Medusa’s hair, and one of the big challenges of the show is the fact that her hair can expand and manipulate objects which requires a ton of VFX work. That being said, when her hair is at a standstill, some might expect it to look a little more… natural. The first two episodes of Inhumans hit IMAX theatres on September 1, 2017 and run for two weeks before premiering on ABC on September 26th. Are you looking forward to Inhumans?
