Marvel Studios has experienced an enormous amount of success in recent years, but that isn't the only facet of Marvel that Hollywood is paying attention to.
Marvel's television division is also procuring plenty of interest from Hollywood, as evidenced in the latest LA screenings of this fall's new TV shows. According to Deadline, reactions to Marvel and FOX's X-Men focused "The Gifted" were positive, especially in regards to the SVOD (Subscription Video On Demand) and premium buyers.
While that will air on FOX, ABC's "Marvel's Inhumans" also experienced positive reactions, and will benefit from IMAX screenings of the premiere. Marvel's Freeform show "Cloak and Dagger" also built some buzz, and will appeal to a different market than both "The Gifted" and Marvel's Inhumans". If all three perform well with general audiences, Marvel will have a very diverse and targeted lineup of shows in the fall.
Fans are still waiting for a full trailer from Marvel's Inhumans, but you can view the reported synopsis below.
“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”
Marvel's Inhumans stars Anson Mount (Black Bolt), Serinda Swan (Medusa), Ken Leung (Karnak), Isabelle Cornish (Crystal), Eme Ikwuakor (Gorgon), Iwan Rheon (Maximus), Sonya Balmores (Auran), Mike Moh (Triton), and Ellen Woglom).
Freeform's Cloak and Dagger's synopsis can be found below.
Cloak & Dagger is a coming-of-age series based on the beloved Marvel characters. Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul.
Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.
Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.
