Inhumans (TV trailer)

Making people watch this show will indeed be inhuman.

that was horrible and they're going to require a superhuman effort to make it watchable, especially after blowing their budget on Imax camera's and Lockjaw cgi.

I can understand why Iwan Maximus Bolton might be over the extreme boredom of life on the moon and do feel sorry about the lack of style and pageantry afforded to its royals. In particularly Medusa needs to have her costume designer beheaded and whats with her horrible lackluster hair? - even without some inhuman fx a good hairstylist could have given it some 'life'.

oh well at least Lockjaw looks cool - lets hope at least he survives the studio execs and critics long enough to join Infinity War...

Doesn't look very promising. For high cost iMax, the sets strike me as low budget TV. The trailer makes it appear that Maximus (Iwan Rheon) will have 90% of the dialogue. He's OK at set chewing, but I don't take him seriously as an actor. Kind of one dimensional since his stint in "Misfits." Medusa's hair is remarkably flat and lifeless. I would agree that the bulk of the budget seemed to go into the Lockjaw CGI.

Madusa annoys me the most, how hard/expensive would it be to always have the hair moving a bit??

Or, you know, maybe not laying absolutely flat?

Yep: Lockjaw good; Medusa's hair bad; silent main protagonist?

Hard sell.

Not really a good property for this sort of thing. Black Bolt can't whisper without killing someone. He can't speak at a normal tone without leveling a city. Thought bubbles are a little hokey on TV.

They probably needed to cast the Black Bolt character with an actor capable of a broad range of facial expressions, like:

1) Jim Carey
2) Keanu Reeves
3) Jason Statham
4) Richard Coyle
5) French Stewart




Sarcasm Alert!

Steve Vai's hair is always moving in his vids due to a fan being focused on him. You don't hear the fan because thy overdub the video with his music.

You'd think a movie studio would think of that.

they probably should have just kept the Inhumans idea killed.

I get that Marvel can and has turned "B-list" characters into good movie or TV properties. The Netflix stuff has generally been good (Iron Fist needs some help...).

I'm not wowed by the Inhumans. They probably could have spent that budget making Agents of Shield better (more FX/bigger events/movie tie-ins).

I'm not familiar with the Inhumans. What I saw was snobby snobs living in a nice Lunar McMansion complaining that Earth is nicer and they should move. The complainy guy who wanted to take over should have been shot (standard zombie survival protocol). The dog is probably the most interesting character from what I've seen.

If they live in a dome, I think I want to burst their bubble.

The Inhumans are the result of Kree experimentation on humans, in order to create cannon fodder for their ongoing war. They were shunned by 'regular' humans (sort of like mutants in the X-Men series) and formed their own hidden society (I vaguely remember it being somewhere in the Himalayas, back when I was reading the comics). They eventually settled in the "Blue Region" (oxygenated area) of the Moon. "Agents of Shield" has presented a bit of this background, but not the royal family nor their home.

Ramsay Bolton (Maximus the Mad) is the instigator who gets the rest of the Inhumans to turn against the royal family, and get them to try to 'take their rightful place ruling over Earth.' I'm really not giving away much here because, presumably, this will take place early in episode 1.

Honestly, the dog is the most interesting character and thats in the comics too, not just this trailer. Only the dog Lockjaw and Black Bolt (the king) were ever B-list characters, the rest of the Royal Family were C or even D-list and never all that popular.

This show is just lazy, you may recall from Agents of Sheild that some Inhumans come out 'weird' - like the eyeless teleporter Gordon, spikey Raina or the monstrous Lash or Hive. We see none of those mutations in the Inhumans on the moon, no centaurs or butterfly women, only a line of plebs who look more like Alpha Primitives than the rightful nobility of Earth.

Not so sure about that. At least two of the female characters appeared elsewhere. Medusa was part of the Fantastic Four for a little while.

Crystal was also part of the FF for a time.

yeah she was Johnny Storms girlfriend, that doesn't mean she isn't a C-List character. You ask 10 random people to name the members of F4 and how many are really going to say Medusa or Crystal?

To be fair, most people in a random selection will probably confuse the Fantastic Four with The Fab Four.
