Marvel’s Inhumans trailer focuses mainly on the action, Medusa

Inhumans trailerMarvel’s Inhumans is one of the most-anticipated new shows of the fall, and it also happens to be one of the ones that we have the most questions about.

For example, is there any way that this show can live up to some of the hype, and silence some of the haters that were upset about various things over the summer? One of the big problems the show has to overcome is merely its ambition: Black Bolt is a huge character within the comic world, and before this was a show, there were plans to make it into a movie. You also have to make Medusa’s hair look awesome using a much smaller budget than you’d have for a big-screen production, and then there are some of the other CGI creations that you have to bring to life.

There are a lot of challenges with this show, but the trailer reminds us of a couple of things.

First, there was probably no better casting for Black Bolt than Anson Mount. He was the strong, silent type as Cullen Bohannon on Hell on Wheels — he certainly spoke more there than he is here, but he was very good at conveying emotion with just a glance or even a nod. These are skills that carry over well here. Beyond Mount, this show does have a pretty incredible cast across the board, including Iwan Rheon, Serina Swan, and Ken Leung. There’s potential for this to be awesome just based on the performances alone.

Also, you do still have the Marvel pedigree. While there have been some shows of theirs here and there that have struggled in one form or another, all of them have their good qualities and reasons to watch. (We personally feel, for the record, like Iron Fist is grossly underrated.) We do think that there are a lot of people voicing a million different concerns about Inhumans without even seeing it. Marvel often comes through, and we’ve got a good feeling that they are going to do so once more here.

Remember that the show is going to be rolling out new episodes in a little bit of an unusual fashion. The first two are going to be available as a limited engagement in IMAX starting on September 1. Meanwhile, it will premiere on ABC later on in the month — with this in mind, we don’t think the network is expecting huge ratings for the premiere, given that many diehard fans will have already checked out the show on the biggest of big screens.
