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 Television recently announced plans for an Inhumans TV series, launching in late 2017 on ABC and centered on the Inhuman Royal Family that was dreamed up by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in the mid-1960s. The Inhumans are a superpowered offshoot of humanity created by interfering aliens, ruled over by the House of Agon. The members of that Royal Family have yet to appear onscreen, despite the recurring presence of Inhumans on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.
We've put together an introductory guide to the House of Agon's core members, including the king and queen, and their big dog too, so that new fans can get a sense of who's who. For those old fans who know the characters only too well, we've also voted on the best and worst of them, and placed them in order.
Though Hasbro has been taking its sweet time making its annual San Diego Comic-Con exclusive announcements, the few that have made it out into the wild have been rather exciting. Not only are we finally getting things like a classic trilogy Obi-Wan Kenobi, but a GI Joe an the Transformers set with transforming vehicles for the Joes and Cobra to ride in. The Marvel side of things has been relatively mum, but yesterday the first Marvel Legends exclusive did manage to break free from the depths of space.
Coming to Comic-Con in a few weeks will be The Collector's Vault, a box set of 3.75" Marvel Legends with a bit of a cosmic bent. At the center of it all is the Collector, who you may recall from his brief stints in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or as the man in charge of Contest of Champions (both the comic and the game). He's got a few friends and relics to add to the mix, too.
As many characters have been churned out boy Toy Biz and Hasbro's Marvel Legends line and the new 3.75" Marvel Universe series, a few awesome characters have continued to languish in Marvel toy obscurity...
