Some may expect Scott Buck to shy away from action scenes on his latest project, Marvel's Inhumans, after being showrunner on Marvel's Iron Fist, but that's not the case.
Buck tells ComicBook.com that there will be plenty of fight scenes in Marvel's Inhumans and that combat even factors into these characters' identities as Inhumans.
"I think pretty much every one of our characters gets into a big, fun action sequence," Buck says. "One of the things we sort of believe is that, as an Inhuman, it's just part of your upbringing to know how to fight, to be a trained warrior. So everyone fights.:
Anyone who has read a Marvel comic book featuring the Inhumans knows that they can hold their own in battle, and it sounds like fans will be seeing some of that in live-action first on an IMAX screen and then weekly on ABC.
In Marvel's Inhumans, 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.
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.
Marvel's Inhumans stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran, and Ellen Woglom.

Buck is serving as showrunner. Roel Reine (Admiral, Black Sails) will direct the first two episodes, which will debut in IMAX theaters.
