Marvel has finally confirmed where in the Marvel Cinematic Universe the Inhuman Royal Family has been hiding all of these years.
We know that Marvel's Inhumans will feature the hidden Inhuman city of Attilan. However, the city has existed in multiple locations in the Marvel Comics universe in the past. The Marvel's Inhumans Twitter account has now confirmed that the Attilan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe resides on the moon.
The Marvel's Inhumans Twitter tweeted out a postcard-like image reading "Greetings from the moon," confirming the city's location.
Attilan resided on the moon for a time in the Marvel Comics universe as well. Specifically, the city resided in the blue area of the moon, a region on the dark side of the moon with an atmosphere artificially generated by alien technology.
It makes sense for the Inhuman Royal Family to live in as remote a place as the moon. This helps explain why the Royal Family has been absent from all of the major Inhuman happenings on Earth, as seen throughout the last several seasons of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.
Attilan has, at varying times, existed in the Himalayan mountain range and floating above the city of New York. The city is the ancestral home of one major branch of the Inhumans.
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.
Marvel's Inhumans is executive produced by Scott Buck (Dexter, Marvel's Iron Fist) with Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage) and Jim Chory (Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage). Buck is serving as showrunner. Roel Reine (Admiral, Black Sails) will direct the first two episodes, which will debut in IMAX theaters. Marvel's Inhumans is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
The first two episodes of Marvel's Inhumans will premiere in IMAX theaters on Friday, Sept. 1. The full eight-episode series will air on ABC on Fridays as part of the network's fall television lineup.
