There isn’t a day that goes past without having to report on something related to Marvel and today is no different as the first look image and teaser trailer from another Marvel TV series; Inhumans has made an appearance featuring the Royal Family.
Marvel will carry out something quite unique in its airing of the first two episodes, which were shot in IMAX, by showing them on the big screen in the autumn. Giving the two episodes the movie experience could well frustrate those fans that have been waiting patiently for the film, only for Marvel to postpone it indefinitely after it was initially scheduled to be released in 2019.
Inhumans is set on Earth and in the Inhumans’ technologically advanced city Attila. The Royal Family will face a critical juncture where everything they’ve ever known is at risk. The Inhumans are led by Black Bolt (Anson Mount), whose devastatingly destructive power is unleashed by using his voice. However, Black Bolt doesn’t actually speak in the show and uses sign language to communicate.
The Inhumans first appeared in Fantastic Four in 1965, though members Medusa and Gorgon appeared in earlier issues of that series). Their home, the city of Attilan, was first mentioned years earlier, in a Tuk the Caveboy story written and drawn by Jack Kirby that appeared in Captain America Comics in 1941. The city was described as the home of a race that was evolutionarily advanced when human beings were still in the Stone Age.
Showrunner, Scott Buck hinted that there could very well be a crossover with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D by saying “Things that have happened on S.H.I.E.L.D. will potentially affect our show as well,” whilst the show is a standalone series, like with many other MCU series they do share the same universe so it wouldn’t be a surprise.
