Black Bolt is one of the most interesting and unique characters in the Marvel Universe because of the incredibly destructive nature of his powers and that's no different in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Anson Mount will play Black Bolt in Marvel's Inhumans and he tells ComicBook.com at Comic-Con International: San Diego that the scale of Black Bolt's destructive power is very much intact in the adaptation.
“I think the scale is something on the size of if he screams it shatters a planet. If he sneezes it destroys a city,” Mount says. “Its a really cool concept for a superpower because he has to take care of it. He has to control it. He has to be responsible for it, and a responsible leader is immediately endearing, I think.”
It's probably a good thing then that the king of the Inhumans doesn't talk in his sleep.
