What a week this has been for Marvel! We kicked things off with the worldwide release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, then we got our first look at The Runaways cast along with a teaser trailer, and now we’re finishing the week with an all-access look into the world of The Inhumans – Marvel’s latest TV project. In this article, we’ll be showcasing the first teaser trailer, cast photo, and teaser poster for Marvel’s most ambitious project to-date!
“Are we supposed to follow our King, and remain as silent as he is?” Maximus asks in the first teaser trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans. Whilst the teaser is light on content, it does give us a brief glimpse of Attilan, the ancestral home of the Inhumans. Throughout the trailer, we hear soundbites of a conversation between Maximus the Mad (Iwan Rheon) and Queen Medusa (Serinda Swan) discussing Black Bolt’s leadership capabilities. Maximus questions whether they should continue following his brother’s rule or betray him.
Entertainment Weekly have released the first official image from Marvel’s The Inhumans – an eight episode ABC show, premiering this fall, with the first two episodes being released in IMAX theatres.

Along with the image, EW also released a teaser poster (see left) and an in-depth interview with showrunner Scott Buck (the man behind Iron Fist). During the interview, Buck revealed that the series will follow the heroes not only on Earth but also on the advanced city of Attilan – Did I mention that it’s located on the moon?
When asked about the gig and it’s daunting premise, Buck said “it was an exciting proposition. I had just finished Iron Fist and was looking for a little time off. Then, Jeph Loeb called me and pitched the idea of the Inhumans, the idea of doing a show basically about this family. We discussed each one of the characters, who they are, their personalities, their journeys. I always approach these things through the characters.”
Before making a go at the project, Buck wanted to learn as much about the characters as possible, which meant going back to where it all started in the 1960’s – “I started at the very beginning. Obviously if you look at those comics from the early ’60s, they’re a very different tone than what we’re doing. It was fun to see how it all began, but I just continued to leap forward.”
Although Buck’s researched the rich lore behind The Inhumans, it seems as though he’ll be taking a new direction with his series and abandoning some of their classic fantastical history in favour for his own grounded approach.

The teaser poster, while basic, gives us a glimpse into the out-of-this-world story that Marvel’s Inhumans will take us on. It also confirms the release date as September 1st 2017, with a special two-episode IMAX theatrical premiere that will run for two weeks, before making it’s television debut on September 26th 2017 for an eight-episode season.
