Marvel Studios and ABC are finally – finally! – ready to thrust the otherworldly city of Attilan under the spotlight.
Ever since both parties decided to overhaul Inhumans to be an eight-part TV series, wanting fans have been left on tenterhooks, left to pour over an amalgamation of leaked trailers and unofficial set photos. That all changes on Thursday, June 29th, when Marvel and ABC plan to unveil the all-new trailer for their live-action epic. Yes, Marvel’s Royal Family are ready to showcase their wares and in order to drum up excitement, today brings forth a fleeting new trailer tease, one which offers a sneak peek at Black Bolt (Anson Mount), Maximus (Iwan Rheon) and Medusa (Serinda Swan) moseying around Attilan.
There’s trouble brewing, though, and it all stems from Maximus’ desire to overthrow his elder brother, Black Bolt, a being with a “voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.” The show’s “cinema-quality” visual effects will no doubt come in handy when bringing Marvel’s Royal Family to life, but the bigger question will be whether Inhumans can win over the naysayers when its IMAX run begins on September 1st.
As we learned just yesterday, following its two-week stint in IMAX theaters, Inhumans will premiere via ABC on Friday, September 29th. It’ll stretch for eight episodes in total, with the first two being directed by Roel Reiné. Scott Buck (Iron Fist), meanwhile, serves as executive producer, and you can find the show’s all-new poster embedded below, courtesy of Yahoo!
Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.
