Earlier this week, we received a premiere date for ABC’s newest comic book series, and just this morning the first official trailer has been released.
The trailer shows Maximus (Iwan Rheon) leading a revolt against the king, Black Bolt (Anson Mount) and the Inhuman royal family escaping to Earth with the help of Lockjaw.
The series will clearly be taking advantage of the picturesque views of Hawaii, but there still seems to be room for concern. The worries over Lockjaw from unfinished leaked footage seem to have been dispelled in seeing a more finished version of the dog, as he seems to look much better than initially believed. However, there are still concerns over the character of Medusa (Serinda Swan), who can psychically control her long hair. We see absolutely none of that in the trailer, even when she is betrayed by guards and held down. It looked like we might get a peek at Black Bolt’s powers (whose voice is so powerful that a mere whisper could destroy an entire city), but he merely looks like he is experiencing internal distress.
Hopefully these are just a few initial missteps, and the series will live up to its potential.
Marvel’s Inhumans debuts the first two episodes in IMAX theaters September 1 for two weeks, followed by airing on ABC starting September 29.
What did you think of the Inhumans trailer? Is it living up to your expectations? Will you be watching?
