The Inhumans are here to look cool & save the world in first pic

05.04.2017

Recently we got a teaser poster for the upcoming INHUMANS show, which in movie/TV land is like the faint sound of the ice cream truck coming from two blocks away. Now the ice cream man is coming down the street, and thanks to EW we now have the first image of the characters from the show, each one in their stoic, superhero stance.

From left to right we have: Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Ken Leung as Karnak, Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, and Iwan Rheon as Maximus.

They also sat down with showrunner Scott Buck (IRON FIST), and spoke about the immense challenges of bringing such big, super characters to the small screen. The show won’t be seen first on TV screens, instead premiering weeks earlier on IMAX screens, something Buck said gave them much more creative freedom, saying the first two episodes now feel more like movies:

…it gave us a lot more freedom and pushed and encouraged us to think a little bit bigger than we would if it was just a normal network show. We just wanted to think bigger in terms of scope, and what we were seeing, and how we bring these characters to the audience.

The visuals and the scope will be grand for sure, but this is ultimately a show about the characters. To that Buck spoke about Black Bolt – the leader of the team who cannot speak – something that was a worthy challenge for both Mount and the production team:

Anson is terrific. I think everyone’s going to be very pleased and excited by his Black Bolt. We’re not doing voice over. If you read the comics, you see Black Bolt does find a way to communicate to people, but he’s also a very enigmatic character as well, and he keeps a lot inside. That’s part of what’s so fascinating about him is that a lot of times, we don’t know what he’s thinking.

But then there’s the big baddie, Rheon’s Maximus, someone who Buck said will be so much more than a smash-and-grab villain:

We were so thrilled to get him because he’s such a super talented actor. We didn’t want to create just a simple villain who’s evil for the sake of being evil. He’s a very real, three-dimensional character. Iwan is more than capable. Every time we watch dailies of him, we’re just more and more excited about what he’s bringing to the screen…I think our Maximus is a different, more complicated, more real, more compelling version of Maximus that has been seen in most of the comics.

Oh, and we can’t forget the one-ton bulldog, Lockjaw, who has the ability to teleport:

Lockjaw is probably going to end up being the audience’s favorite character. We certainly enjoy working with him. He’s fun to write, he’s fun to shoot. There’s not too much more detail than that that I can give, but he is going to be a standout on the show.

I don’t watch AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. much anymore, but that’s just because it’s hard to fit in so much TV-watching in my life. Chances are I'll watch INHUMANS so I can see what they’re going for, so maybe it will be awesome enough to keep me, and all audiences, on-board for a long period of time. Anything with a massive bulldog has to be amazing, right?

INHUMANS debuts on IMAX screens September 1 before heading to ABC on September 26.

Looks good, but not great. More serviceable than anything I guess, which is not what they should have been aiming for.

Given the quality of costumes in the movies and Netflix, not sure why they went the route of replicating the X-Men movie designs and didn't go with something MUCH more closer to the comics.

Oh man that looks like terrible an fart that somebody came up with on Photoshop

To be fair, Black Bolt and Gorgon look alright (but not great) but Medusa is sporting the world's worst wig and Crystal looks like a really lazy attempt from a Cosplay convention.

I can only imagine how bad Lockjaw will look...

This is fucking horrendous to be honest. I'm about the biggest marvel fan you'll see, but this is truly awful. From Black Bolts 90's Xmen uniform that everyone laughs at now, to Medusa's Party City 10 year old's Halloween costume quality wig, even Karnak is fucking horrible. They had an easy out with his modern costume to make it more grounded in reality and yet be modern. Gorgon's race swap I hate as well, and I can't see if they have him Hoofed or not. Lastly where the fuck is Triton and why

Lastly where the fuck is Triton and why did they excise him (assuming he isn't introduced later in the series). I was so excited for the Inhumans Royal family, and THIS is what I waited for??? Ugh. Fuck you Scott Buck, first you fuck up IF and Now it looks like you're fucking this up. How do you keep getting jobs?

umm what...

I am excited that they are making this property, much rather get a movie, but whatever. That being said, this look feels very Bryan Singer/X-Men/esque. This is a big MEH for me as it stands right now. And Medusa, who i was most excited to see done, looks terrible. The costume, the hair. A big ol NOPE! Please don't disappoint.

So the showrunner for Iron Fist is the showrunner for this? Hopefully Marvel and ABC figure out a way to not ever advertise that fact...

Not digging the look but may look better onscreen. Will give it a fair chance. Wonder if we'll ever see AoS crossovers. Guess that depends slightly on MCU. I dunno. Maybe not.

Goddammit

I'm so tired of all these actors forsaking masks.

Also, they better fucking not betray how fucking powerful Black Bolt is.

EW seriously takes the worst pictures. It's possible they still look bad in the final product, but man, EW consistently takes terrible pictures.

Maximus looks pretty cool, the rest. Medusa's hair looks very fake (guessing it'll be CGI in the series.) Karnak is okay, Gorgon too.
Not digging Black Bolt's leisure suit costume.

Nerts!

Aw man! I was hoping Ken Leung might still get his own solo "Guy with Spikes in His Face" character from X-3 movie.
