Marvel’s Inhumans has been in the news a lot lately, with the show making its big-screen debut in just over two weeks — and the buzz has been less than flattering. A new “First Look” promo has been released, which includes the Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb, executive producer and showrunner Scott Buck, and director Roel Reine, who directed the first two episodes that will be shown in theaters before the show makes its network television debut.
There doesn’t appear to be any new footage in the video that we didn’t get to see in the trailer or Comic-Con teaser. But Loeb, Buck and Reine give us the setup that the series is about a royal family and the betrayal of one brother against another. It’s the story of the Inhuman King Black Bolt (Anson Mount) choosing to keep his people away from the humans, while his brother Maximus (Iwan Rheon) rallies the people by stroking the fear and hatred of the humans into being more aggressive. When Maximus makes his move to usurp the throne, Black Bolt, his wife Medusa (Serinda Swan), and loyal family members escape to Earth. And that’s where the fun begins.
Marvel’s Inhumans debuts in IMAX theaters on September 1st and on ABC September 29th.
