Earlier today, Marvel Studios gifted fans with its first official look at its upcoming Inhumans series. The ambitious project is slated to debut this September with its first two episodes airing in IMAX before ABC screens the series’ remaining episodes for cable viewers. The hybrid project has been busy filming in Hawaii over the last month or so, teasing fans with images of the Inhumans’ royal family in action. The blurry images made it difficult for fans to get a good look at the gang’s costumes, but a new cast photo has finally fixed that issue.
However, it looks like fans wish Entertainment Weekly kept the exclusive look to itself.
Fans have taken to Twitter to bemoan the film’s cheap-looking costumes with some even going as far to compare the looks to last-minute cosplays. Characters like Karnak and Maximus have avoided the majority of costume digs, but leads like Black Bolt and Medusa have been slammed on social media. From the costumes’ lackluster finishes to one poorly weaved wig, fans are having a real hard time swallowing the Inhumans’ get-ups for now.
You can read up on some of the most scathing critiques in the following slides:

Even The Costumes in the Failed Justice League Pilot look Better than the Inhumans costumes pic.twitter.com/otv6bapVwb— Tom???/??? (@tommybIakes) May 4, 2017
I'm sorry, the inhumans look awful. These costumes are looking more like real everyday outfits mixed with stupid cosplay. Medusa looks trash— Flibie (@flibie28) May 4, 2017
This #Inhumans cosplay is pretty good.
Oh wait... Those are the ACTUAL costumes for the Inhumans IMAX TV show?May 4, 2017
That #Inhumans cast photo has already ruined my day. This take on Black Bolt's costume is the worst. Medusa just... no— Harry Allard (@harrygcallard) May 4, 2017
I do not understand how they could fuck up the most basic costumes. The INHUMANS' comic suits are actually cool. Idk wtf this shit is— roby (@iamthatroby) May 4, 2017
After the Defenders trailer I was a bit disappointed only Daredevil has a costume but after seeing Inhumans' effort that may be a good thing— Jim Halpert (@darththawne) May 4, 2017
