Marvel has a lot of big projects happening in 2017, and while Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor Ragnarok are all highly-anticipated films, there are just as many Marvel projects happening on the TV screen that are just as exciting.
We already got a new Marvel Netflix show (Iron Fist) and an exciting new story arc on Agents of SHEILD (HYDRA). Coming down the line there's also a Punisher Netflix series coming, a big Defenders team up event in August, and that same month we'll also get a new Marvel network TV series in the form of Marvel's Inhumans.
Inhumans is currently in production, bringing the story of Marvel's Inhuman royal family to the screen for the first time. Inhumans is especially notable in the fact that its first two episodes are being released in IMAX movie theaters - the first superhero project to be 100% filmed in the format.
There is much hype around Marvel's ambitious plan for launching Inhumans - and according to Disney Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Media Distribution, Mark Endemano, the show will live up to the hype. Speaking at the LA Screenings TV preview event, Endemano said, "I promise you, this is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before on television. It brings a richness and depth of storytelling.”
Admittedly it's hard to know what Endemano is selling with that quote; it vaguely highlights the scope and technical ambitions behind Inhumans, but then also vaguely teases strong character and narrative development. In short, it seems like an executive's "sell" of his product - an all-encompassing praise that somehow doesn't tell us anything concrete.
Regardless, after some strong casting and interesting production reveals, Marvel fans are already onboard with Inhumans - and all the potential supepowered and cosmic action that comes along with it!
“Inhumans,” which is filmed using IMAX cameras, will debut in IMX theaters in the United States on September 1. The show will receive its broadcast debut on ABC on September 26. The series is produced by ABC Studios, Marvel Television and IMAX, and stars Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Iwan Rheon, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores and Ellen Woglom.
The first two episode of Marvel’s The Inhumans (directed by Roel Reine) will premiere in over 1,000 IMAX theatres across the globe — for a two-week run — starting on September 1, 2017. ABC will then premiere the weekly television series on Tuesday, September 26. Marvel's Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck is serving as its showrunner.
