MARVEL’S INHUMANS – Official Trailer

This fall, Marvel will attempt what few thought possible: After delaying its Inhumans film indefinitely (it was originally slated for summer 2019), the superstudio will bring Marvel’s Inhumans to life on ABC and — in a more limited fashion — on the big screen, too. And EW has the exclusive first look below.

For the uninitiated, Inhumans — first introduced in the pages of Fantastic Four in 1965 before headlining their own title in 1975 — are a race of hybrid alien-human superbeings who’ve undergone a transformative “terrigenesis,” a process that unlocks sometimes strange, but uniquely powerful gifts. “It was an exciting proposition,” showrunner Scott Buck (Iron Fist) says of tackling the series’ challenges, which include visual effects-heavy favorites like Medusa (Serinda Swan) and her prehensile hair, and the one-ton teleporting bulldog Lockjaw.

While not a spin-off of Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., both ABC shows share a world with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Things that have happened on S.H.I.E.L.D. will potentially affect our show as well,” Buck says, playing coy on potential crossover possibilities. But Inhumans is intended to stand on its own, trading procedural spy elements for a serialized family drama. (via. Entertainment Weekly)

Marvel’s Inhumans will appear on IMAX screens September 1, 2017 for two weeks before premiering on ABC September 29, 2017.
