One of the most exciting new TV shows on the way this year is Marvel’s The Inhumans. While it was originally set to be a movie, an eight-part series is now being developed by ABC and Marvel Television, though IMAX is also involved with financing to ensure that the show features top-notch visuals and special effects. Why? Well, the first two episodes will be shown on IMAX screens, a first for a TV series, and a sign that Marvel is taking Black Bolt and the rest of these characters very seriously.
Iron Fist‘s Scott Buck was recently appointed showrunner and now it looks like he’ll be getting to work on The Inhumans sooner rather than later. According to Production Weekly, the show will start shooting in March in both Los Angeles and Chicago. With no plot details beyond the fact that it will focus on the royal family currently known, it’s impossible to guess why these two cities have been chosen, but it’s worth noting that this probably means casting announcements are on the horizon.
It’s previously been reported that The Inhumans will take place on the Moon in the home of Black Bolt and company, so the vast majority of shooting is probably going to take place in studios. However, it’s perfectly feasible that the characters could ultimately make their presence felt on Earth as the series plays out.
Between this news and the fact that a September premiere date has already been set, expect more on The Inhumans to be revealed very soon.
