Marvel‘s Inhumans will make its debut on ABC this Fall, with an IMAX premiere of the first two episodes on September 1st. The show features the Royal Family of Marvel, namely Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Sonya Balmores as Auran, and Mike Moh as Triton.
That’s quite the lineup, and given the size of the cast list and the complexities of bringing all these characters to life on screen, it’s fair to say that Inhumans will be a very ambitious project for ABC. The channel has now released the logline for the show (via EW), which offers scant details on the plot of the show:
“Marvel’s 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 their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”
Though that doesn’t give a lot to go on, the first trailer for Inhumans made its debut at the ABC upfronts, and description of the footage is now available online. Though the actual trailer is yet to arrive, we can at least get a better feel for the show from the description that Comicbook.com gave.
The trailer begins with a look at the Inhumans home planet, Attilian, alongside Earth and the moon. Black Bolt and Medusa are the first characters we see. From there, we meet the rest of the cast as they sit down to dinner together. There’s footage shown of Maximus (the villain) forcing Medusa to her knees, and of him watching as Crystal is arrested and led away, before Black Bolt and Lockjaw teleport to Earth.
According to Comicbook.com, “Their sudden appearance in the middle of a street causes an accident. Naturally, Black Bolt seems a tad overwhelmed.”
From there, the trailer picks up its pace, with a series of fast shots, including Black Bolt dressed in civilian clothes, fighting police officers, and also Karnak and Gorgon fighting soldiers.
Still not an awful lot to go on, but there’s promise of several layers of conflict to be explored, as well as the Inhumans in a human setting, and that’s got to be fun to see. Inhumans will make its debut in IMAX for 2 weeks from September 1st, before the whole series becomes available on ABC for streaming.
