With Marvel’s Inhumans currently filming, ABC and Marvel Entertainment have moved to release the first official photo of its titular Royal Family. Being released via EW, the shot gives us a good idea of what to expect when it comes to Black Bolt and Co.

As well as the ‘first look’, showrunner Scott Buck also spoke to the outlet about what we can expect from the series, explaining, “Black Bolt is a very difficult character I would think for Anson, but for any actor to play. But Anson is tackling it in a hugely fantastic way. It’s a little bit difficult to write him, because Black Bolt does not speak, but yet he is our hero and he is the centre of the show, so it does certainly present challenges in how you tell his story, but fortunately we came up with a really good story. Anson is terrific. I think everyone’s going to be very pleased and excited by his Black Bolt. We’re not doing voice over. If you read the comics, you see Black Bolt does find a way to communicate to people, but he’s also a very enigmatic character as well, and he keeps a lot inside. That’s part of what’s so fascinating about him, is that a lot of times we don’t know what he’s thinking.”

In Marvel’s Inhumans, Black Bolt is played by Anson Mount, with Serinda Swan as Queen Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, and Ellen Woglom as a to-be-confirmed character created especially for the show.

In addition to all of the aforementioned characters, longtime comic book fans were delighted to hear that fan favourite giant dog Lockjaw would be a part of Marvel’s Inhumans, and on that Buck said, “Lockjaw is probably going to end up being the audience’s favourite character. We certainly enjoy working with him. He’s fun to write, he’s fun to shoot. There’s not too much more details than that that I can give, but he is going to be a standout on the show.”

The current blurb for Inhumans reads:

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 Earht itself.

The Inhumans as a group have been around in the comic book realm since 1965. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the alien race all have their own unique powers. In more recent decades, their popularity and prominence in the Marvel Comics world has grown massively.

Marvel’s Inhumans will be made up of just eight episodes, and will premiere its two-part pilot in IMAX cinemas in September before heading to ABC for the rest of its run in the US. No details are known on where the show will call home in the UK at this early stage.
