Inhumans series gets character trailer and posters PLUS is the show in trouble before it begins?

August 22nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

With Marvel’s Inhumans series now only weeks away we have some news for you including character posters and a video.

The new character posters (below) feature Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad as well as Isabelle Cornish as Medusa’s sister Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton and Ken Leung’s Karnak.

They all certainly look the part. Also we have a new ‘character trailer’ that allows you to meet the characters before the show airs.

The show itself has found it self getting a lot of negative press recently over comments made by director Roel Reiné who said the show was made for a cheap as possible and in a hurry: “I think they liked me for the job because I was able with my action movies to shoot in a very short time, or with very low budgets, action that looks like a big-budget movie,” he claimed, “It was not a feature film, it was a TV episode, but they still wanted to have the scope.”

“The schedule was super-tight. I had TV schedule time to shoot it with Imax cameras, 20 days to shoot two episodes. It’s nerve-wracking but I come from a low-budget film world, so 20 days for me is luxury.

“There was always a Marvel executive around me, just to make sure that whatever I did, or whatever we did together, would tie in with other characters in other universes, in other comics, in other series or movies,”Reiné said. “They’re very protective. … These people are very passionate about their product and about characters and about doing the best version of everything.”


Added to this that it seems IMAX is cutting short the theatrical run for Inhumans a week sooner than expected starting on September 8th now for one week rather than the planned two – although it may just be because they don’t want it going up against IT – then it looks like Marvel may not have the faith in the show that you would like to think.

What say you all? Is Marvel’s Inhumans in trouble before it begins? Let us know…

Inhumans premieres in IMAX theaters on September 1, before arriving on ABC on September 29.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
