The trailer for the new limited Marvel television series “Inhumans” aired on ABC, June 29, 2017. Marvel’s decision to base the series on the comics has fans in a buzz about the new potential television show.
At first, Marvel announced their plans for an “Inhumans” movie to appear on the big screen, exciting fans about the possibility of seeing the iconic group of heroes join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
That excitement did not last long, as “Inhumans” suffered multiple delays in 2016, two years after the idea for the movie was announced. Soon, it was considered a no-show by fans after Disney officially removed the film from its group of upcoming Marvel projects.
Later, Marvel announced the continuation of the project but with a few major tweaks, including “Inhumans” being a limited series for ABC, instead of a movie for the big screen. Marvel announced that the first premiere would take place in the IMAX theaters nationwide for a limited time, ahead of its official premiere on ABC.
The news of the official airing of the “Inhumans” trailer gives fans high expectations of the series, following the Inhuman Royal Family:
- Black Bolt, played by Anson Mount;
- Medusa, played by Serinda Swan;
- Maximus, played by Iwan Rheon;
- Karnak, played by Ken Leung;
- Gorgon, played by Eme Ikwuakor;
- Crystal, played by Isabelle Cornish.
The trailer shows the crux of the television drama as the growing feud between the silent King Black Bolt and his brother Maximus, who does not want to stay on their planet, instead, wants to return to Earth.
Though what really excites the fans is Marvel’s use of special effects and CGI, as one of the characters. Lockjaw, the 2,000-pound teleporting dog, will require the monitoring efforts of an on-hand CGI tech. Based on Henry Ian Cusick’s comments about “Inhumans,” the series probably will not hold back, featuring Lockjaw as much as possible.
The dog is not the only one who will require an on-hand CGI tech. Characters will need some special effects to make the superpowers of the Inhumans look as real as the audience anticipates.
The series will follow these royal family members as they escape to Hawaii, after a military coup, trying to save themselves and their planet. The show will also be taking place on Attilan, the Inhumans’ home world.
Even though the “Inhumans” trailer gave fans high expectations for the series, there is no promise that it will measure up to the hype. The television show will air the first two episodes back-to-back on ABC, Sept. 29, from 8-10 p.m. ET.
