Somewhere in space (the Moon), there is a society of humans that have been granted exceptional abilities thanks to some alien tinkering with their DNA and an all-powerful mist that activates those alien genes to give them super-powers. Inhumans have been around the TV section of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a while thanks to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but that original version of the Inhumans, as realized by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the pages of Fantastic Four 50 years ago, will finally be seen on screen this fall in the new ABC series, The Inhumans. Here’s a new poster.
The image is pretty straightforward with the symbol worn on the headpiece of the Inhuman king Black Bolt hovering over the Earth. The plot for the new series finds Black Bolt and the rest of the Inhuman royal family in exile in Hawaii after a military coup in their home base on the Moon. The eight episode series is not being billed as either a limited series or an ongoing series; presumably if it is a success, then Marvel, ABC, and IMAX will bring it back for more. The series stars stars Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Iwan Rheon, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores and Ellen Woglom, and is presently shooting in the Aloha State.
The Inhumans will premiere in IMAX theatres everywhere on Labour Day weekend, before the series premieres on ABC later this fall.
