With the production of ABC and Marvel's The Inhumans currently underway in Hawaii, new information is coming to light about the Royal Family’s small screen debut. Now, a recently revealed filming location may point toward hints about their iconic kingdom.
Previously revealed set photos showed Anson Mount as the Inhuman King Black Bolt and his current costume, as well as hints at Lockjaw’s actual size, but we’ve yet to see many other members of the cast.
But now we might have an idea of where the Inhumans lay their heads at night, and the location is fitting for the fictional city of Attilan.
Reel News Hawaii reported earlier that the production would be filming in Diamond Head, a dormant volcanic cone located on the south side of O’ahu. They have since confirmed the news of the shooting location.

The fictional city has existed in a few different locations over the course of Marvel comics history, including in the Atlantic ocean, in the Himalayas, and on the Moon. The original city was blown up by Black Bolt in a battle with Thanos as it floated over New York. The rebuilt New Attilan still resides in that area, along the Hudson river.
It’s unclear at this point whether Attilan will be based in Hawaii or if they’ll use effects to make the location look like it’s in a different area, or if this is even Attilan at all.
But come on, look at these pictures. WHAT ELSE WOULD THIS PLACE BE?
The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s The Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.
The cast features Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran, Ellen Woglom as Undisclosed Character, and Lockjaw as himself.
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.
