Marvel's Inhumans Star Says It Has "No Villains"
Marvel's Inhumans is set to take the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a new direction when it premiere in the fall. And according to one of the miniseries' cast members, that will involve some complex definitions of hero and villain.
Iwan Rheon, who will play Maximus the Mad on the upcoming series, recently told CBR that his character might not be as much of a stereotypical villain as fans would expect.
"There are no villains," Rheon revealed. "It's developing as we go along. Maximus, he wants to help the people. He's actually genuinely out to help people in a system he believes is wrong and unjust."
According to Rheon, this level of moral ambiguity will extend beyond Maximus, and become one of the show's themes.
"What's great about this show," Rheon explained, "is it has sort of gray areas in terms of what is a villain, what isn't. It's not black and white."
