An isolated community of superhumans fight to protect themselves.
"Inhumans" was initially meant to be a movie, but was put on the TV production calendar due to the jam-packed schedule of Marvel blockbusters the next few years. The first two episodes will premiere in IMAX theaters on Sept. 1.
Check out the trailer below, and decide for yourself if the show is even worth watching.
While I’m sure that Serinda Swan’s a talented actress, this wig they’ve plopped on her head is a disgrace to the Inhuman royal blood. It’s dead straight, got barely any volume to it, and doesn’t seem at all like the kind of hair that might strangle you to death.
Obviously, if Inhumans planned to give Medusa even a modicum of the kind of powers her hair has in the comics, it would require a a fair amount of CGI. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, though, Inhumans show runner Scott Buck emphasized that the show wasn’t planning on spending all that much money to bring the Inhumans’ powers to life. Even more worrying, Buck’s admitted that the Inhumans team has had trouble animating Medusa’s hair.
But according to Entertainment Weekly, the show's producer Scott Buck (who was also the showrunner of the troubled Netflix series "Iron Fist") has high hopes for the series. He's excited to bring Marvel's royal family to the small screen.
Actually, it was an exciting proposition. I had just finished Iron Fist and was looking for a little time off. Then, Jeph Loeb called me and pitched the idea of the Inhumans, the idea of doing a show basically about this family. We discussed each one of the characters, who they are, their personalities, their journeys. I always approach these things through the characters — what’s the story we can tell about Black Bolt, about Medusa and each one of these members of the Royal Family? It may have been daunting, but I think I was, more than anything, just excited about jumping in.
