When the first trailer for Marvel's The Inhumans was released it drew quite a bit of backlash from fans. Much of the criticism centered around the show's production design and special effects, specifically Medusa's wig. Now, ABC has released a new First Look promo for the upcoming series with some new footage You can watch the video above.
Following the first trailer for The Inhumans the primary complaint about the four-pound red wig and associated CGI effects was that it was too flat-looking for Medusa's dynamic prehensile locks. ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey spoke out about the criticism at the Television Critics Association press tour earlier this month calling the wig a "work in progress." In the new footage, it appears that some of the concerns were addressed. The wig appears a little less flat as she disables an opponent and confronts Maximus in two brief glimpses in the footage.
In addition to the slight improvements on Medusa’s wig the feature includes commentary from Marvel Television chief Jeph Loeb, executive producer and showrunner Scott Buck, and director Roel Reine giving a brief summary of the show’s plot. Loeb also talks about the quality of Marvel projects.
“When you're going on an adventure with Marvel you know that what you’re getting involved with is something absolutely breathtaking,” Loeb says.
Viewers will find out just how breathtaking The Inhumans adventure is soon. The Inhumans debuts on IMAX on September 1, followed by its ABC premiere on September 29.
