Marvel has zeroed in on the showrunner for their Inhumans TV series: and they didn’t have to look farther than their own backyard to find the right man for the job.
So, who just landed the no doubt EPIC gig? The Hollywood Reporter recently broke the news that Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck (Dexter) will continue his relationship with Marvel by steering the ship for Marvel’s The Inhumans (which is not an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff). I’m guessing Buck got the job because the Marvel powers-that-be liked what they saw with Iron Fist. Which is making me even more excited for the upcoming Netflix superhero series, as well as The Inhumans. Are we 2017 yet?
The Inhumans were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965 for the pages of Marvel Comics and featured a race of “superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers.” The new Marvel series (a co-production among Marvel, IMAX and ABC) based on the comics will “explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.”
Meaning that the show will feature Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Gorgon, Karnak, Triton and Lockjaw in their first live-action appearance ever (I soooo can’t wait to see that). It was also recently revealed that some of the action for the new series will take place on the moon, which I'm sure will look totally mind-blowing on the big screen since (and for the first time ever) Marvel will debut the first two episodes exclusively on IMAX theaters (it’ll be filmed in IMAX digital cameras) for two weeks beginning on Labor Day Weekend 2017 before kicking off its eight-episode run on ABC in September.
What do you think about Scott Buck coming on board Marvel's The Inhumans as showrunner?
