Marvel’s “Inhumans” to contain extra footage for TV premiere
As the clock ticks down Marvel fans are getting closer and closer to seeing Marvel’s Inhumans in all their glory, and many of them are salivating for the opportunity to see it in IMAX (as so many of the recently released Marvel movies have been presented), but for those of you who can’t make it to an IMAX theater for whatever reason, fear not because you have your own special treat, and according to Marvel Television chief Jeph Loeb, that will be the addition of all new footage for its premiere on ABC.
While at Comic Con International in San Diego, Loeb did not elaborate on what the additional footage would entail, but he would confirm that it would be there.
In Marvel’s Inhumans, 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.
The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s The Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.
Marvel’s Inhumans stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheonas Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran, and Ellen Woglom.
Marvel’s Inhumans is executive produced by Scott Buck (Dexter, Marvel’s Iron Fist) with Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Luke Cage) and Jim Chory (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Luke Cage). Buck is serving as showrunner. Roel Reine (Admiral, Black Sails) will direct the first two episodes, which will debut in IMAX theaters. Marvel’s Inhumans is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
The first two episodes of Marvel’s Inhumans will premiere in IMAX theaters on Friday, Sept. 1. The full eight-episode series will air on ABC on Fridays as part of the network’s fall television lineup.
What are your thoughts regarding Marvel adding new footage for the TV premiere? Is this an indication of “IMAX fatigue,” or does it signify something else in terms of initial audience reactions towards the trailers? Could it be that Marvel simply wants to magnify the bang for their buck by trying to lure fans to see both?
