It looks like the Internet’s tune is changing when it comes to Inhumans. ABC, Marvel, and IMAX hosted the project’s world premiere in LA the other day, and reactions to the show are already sounding promising.
As you can see below, several outlets are starting to fly the banner now for Inhumans in the wake of its premiere. The miniseries screened its first two episodes for lucky attendees in Universal City Los Angeles, and several journalists left the event as Inhumans converts.
In the past, Inhumans has been met with notable backlash thanks to its visual effects and production quality. Fans pushed back against the series earlier this year when its first poster went public; Audiences made it very clear they were unhappy with the costumes given to Marvel heroes such as Black Bolt and Medusa.
As Inhumans continued its press tour, fans grew more cynical of the show’s quality. Its debut trailer left much wanting, and fans roasted the show’s depiction of Medusa and her iconic red locks.
The public opinion towards Inhumans has not been overwhelmingly positive, but Marvel Television may have made enough changes to win over even the biggest non-believers. The show’s introductory episodes are being described as fun romps.
“I'm pretty sure that people will see the first couple episodes of Inhumans and think it's pretty fun,” Josh Webb-Thomson of Marvel Report shared online. “If nothing else, it's a lot of fun.”

Much more intriguing than one may have originally thought. I was a little surprised by how interested I was, even if it’s predictable— Josh Webb-Thomson 🐝 (@FightOnTwist) August 29, 2017
Whew! It looks like The Inhumans has more substance to it than its trailers would have fans think. If you have the time, it's worth reading through this journalist's thread of reactions; He seems smitten with the royal family!

You know a show is good when outlets use all caps to describe it. WE HOPE THE INHUMANS IS AS GREAT AS TWITTER IS SAYING.
Got a chance to see the first two episodes of @theinhumans in Imax tonight. Really enjoyed it. I can't spoil anything, but it's fun.— Matthew Rosenberg (@AshcanPress) August 29, 2017
Fun seems to be the key word when it comes to The Inhumans. Really, what else can you hope from a show featuring a giant psychic dog?
I'm going to just come out and say it: I loved Inhumans. Rheon & Mount are so damn good. Cannot wit to see more of Crystal & Lockjaw.— Shawn Madden (@shawnxmadden) August 29, 2017
It looks like the actors of The Inhumans are getting some praise themselves. If you were not looking forward to Anson Mount and Iwan Rheon's leads playing off of each other, then it is time you got excited.
