As we inch closer and closer to the fall, production begins to heat up on what might just be one of Marvel’s most ambitious projects yet. And no, we’re not referring to Avengers: Infinity War, though that’s wildly ambitious, too. Rather, we’re talking about Inhumans, which is getting ready to head in front of cameras and is now well into the casting process.
Earlier this week, we told you that Game of Thrones alum Iwan Rheon had snagged a lead role, with the actor signing on to play Maximus. Now, we’re hearing from Jeff Sneider of Meet The Movie Press that a former LOST star could be next to join. While he wouldn’t say who exactly it is, he noted that they’re up for a big role.
“It is a veteran, I’m not going to say whether it is a man or a woman, it is a veteran of the television show LOST. A LOST veteran, I think, is getting a big role in Inhumans. There’s like 80 people in LOST. Good luck figuring that out.”
While it’s true that the show featured a massive cast, ComicBook.com put forth some potential candidates who all sound like they could easily fit in here. Among others, they list Josh Holloway, Ian Somerhalder and Dominic Monaghan, all of whom we could see showing up on Inhumans. Casting someone from LOST makes a bit of sense, too, as ABC is behind both shows and like J.J. Abrams’ island-set thriller, Inhumans will also film in Hawaii.
At this point, we can’t say for sure who Sneider is referring to, but the news is interesting nonetheless and if it’s already beginning to spread, we imagine that Marvel will come out with a formal announcement in the not too distant future. Especially since they revealed Rheon’s involvement just a few days ago and with the Game of Thrones actor set in the lead role, we’ve no doubt that the rest of the cast will come together quite quickly.
Tell us, which former LOST star do you think may show up on Inhumans? Sound off in the usual place and let us know.
