Having recently brought in some of its key players – Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, and Ken Leung as Karnak – Marvel’s The Inhumans has announced five further new additions.
In an official statement, Marvel Entertainment confirmed the following:
Marvel Entertainment has announced the remainder of the Marvel’s Inhumans cast with the addition of the remaining key roles for their upcoming series. Those added to the cast include:
Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion, Extant) as Gorgon – Cousin of Black Bolt, member of the Royal family, and leader of Attilan’s military. With super strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp. The yin to his cousin Karnak’s yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.
Isabelle Cornish (Australia Day, Puberty Blues) as Crystal – Medusa’s sister, Crystal is the youngest member of the royal family and has the ability to control the elements. Impetuous and independent she is also deeply devoted to her family.
Mike Moh (Empire, Street Fighter: Assasin’s Fist) as Triton – Black Bolt’s cousin, he’s calm under pressure and supremely athletic. His gift is his fish-like ability to live underwater.
Sonya Balmores (Beyond the Break, Soul Surfer) as Auran – Head of the Royal Guards on Attilan, a capable and no-nonsense woman. She is fiercely loyal to the King of Attilan.
Ellen Woglom (Californication, Outlaw) as an unnamed character – smart, intense, and focused—so focused that oftentimes, social skills take a back seat. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar. She’s primed to be swept up in an adventure.
Finally, Marvel revealed that the fan favorite Lockjaw, Crystal’s 2,000 lb canine companion with the ability to teleport, will appear in the series.
“We’re thrilled with this cast. Eme, Isabelle, Mike, Sonya, and Ellen round out an incredible array of talent that will finally bring the Royal Family of the Inhumans to IMAX and ABC,” said Executive Producer Jeph Loeb.
“With Eme, Isabelle, Mike, Sonya, and Ellen portraying the rest of our leading roles, we have a strong cast that is going to add tremendous depth to our Royal Family,” added Executive producer and showrunner, Scott Buck.
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.
Where Marvel’s The Inhumans is concerned, the series is a unique beast in the way that its two-part pilot will have a two-week run in IMAX cinemas in September before heading to ABC for the rest of its episodes.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
