Marvel and ABC’s The Inhumans has gone before cameras for the better part of a week now, and until the IMAX production comes forth with any official teases, most looks at the super-powered race have come off-set. Sneak a peek at Medusa, Crystal (and maybe Maximus?) in the latest photos!
This week saw the conclusion to the titanic clash between mutants and Inhumans that was Inhumans vs X-Men, and with Resurrxion just around the corner, the events of Jeff Lemire, Charles Soule, Leinil Francis Yu, Gerry Alanguilan and David Curiel's Inhumans vs X-Men #6 will have massive repercussions for both franchises going forward. But what exactly happened, and what does it mean?
This week saw the conclusion of Inhumans vs X-Men, which means we're mere weeks away from Resurrxtion and a whole new status quo for both franchises. For the Inhumans, their royal family are heading to space to discover the truth behind the mystery of the Terrigen Crystals, but one of them won't be coming home. Ahead of the release of Al Ewing and Jonboy Meyers' Royals #1, we've got an unlettered first look.
We know that there's an Inhumans television show coming whether we like it or not, and we know Marvel Comics is going to keep pushing the franchise in the comics whether we like it or not, but it doesn't have to all be grim acceptance of our terrigen-infused future. The proliferation of Inhumans #content has been a good thing too, as it's given us Ms. Marvel, Moon Girl, and perhaps most importantly, lots more opportunities to see what Lockjaw is up to!
As tends to be the case with major casting announcements, Marvel and ABC got ahead of The Inhumans curve to reveal its major players before they could be identified on set by prying fans. That said, pry away into Black Bolt’s costume, and a CG Lockjaw stand-in with these first photos!
It’s Friday, meaning Marvel’s ABC Inhumans is out of weekdays for major castings like Karnak, Medusa, Black Bolt or Maximus, but never fear. Not only has the full cast been revealed to include our Crystal, Gorgon, Triton and more, but you can bet on tons of fun from the teleporting Lockjaw.
Marvel recently announced that actor Anson Mount has been cast in the largely mute role of Black Bolt in the Inhumans TV show, debuting later this year on ABC. As king of the secretive superhuman race, and as the wielder of a voice that can level cities, Black Bolt is one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe, able to hold his own against tough guys like Hulk, Thor, and even Thanos. He also boasts the slickest superhero costume Jack Kirby ever designed.
But none of that is the best thing about Black Bolt. The best thing about Black Bolt is that his real name is Blackagar Boltagon. We're such fans of the name that we thought we'd apply its basic principles to some other great comics characters to see how it sits on them.
We do hope you’ve not grown tired of Marvel’s ABC Inhumans after the rapid-fire castings of Medusa, Black Bolt and Maximus, as the Royal Family is only growing. LOST alum Ken Leung has found Karnak’s weak point, suiting up as the latest member of the ABC-IMAX drama.
Marvel’s Royal Family is significantly expanding in volume. Just one day after ABC’s The Inhumans found a Black Bolt to complement Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Medusa is letting down her hair. The ABC-IMAX drama has found its Inhuman queen, as Serinda Swan joins the cast.
Marvel’s The Inhumans proved it was starting to get serious with the addition of Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon as Maximus, but there’s no more serious than the King himself. The ABC-IMAX drama has found its mute hero in Hell on Wheels alum Anson Mount, playing the famous Black Bolt.
