ABC is going big for the premiere of "Marvel's Inhumans."
The network just announced the series will hold its two-hour premiere, featuring back-to-back episodes, on Friday, September 29 from 8 to 10 p.m. on ABC. In a bold move to promote the comic book adaptation, a version of the first two episodes will be shown around the world in IMAX theaters for a two-week period, starting September 1.
Here's the synopsis from ABC:
"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 Inhumans' explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever."
The series stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Ken Leung as Karnak, Ellen Woglom as "an undisclosed character," Sonya Balmores as Auran, and Mike Moh as Triton.
