This September, Marvel will add a new layer to its cinematic universe with The Inhumans, an ambitious new TV series that will make its debut in 1,000 IMAX theaters nationwide before premiering on ABC. With The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy already in place, the series represents a chance for yet another superteam to shine and finally gives Marvel Comics fans live-action versions of Black Bolt, Medusa and the entire Inhuman Royal Family.
Over the last week or so, Marvel's announced several impressive members of its lead cast for the series, including Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak and Iwan Rheon as Maximus. Now, the full cast is assembled, and Marvel dropped all of their names in one big announcement.
Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion) will play Gorgon, Black Bolt's cousin and head of the Inhuman military, who generates powerful waves of destruction with stomps of his hooved feet.
As Crystal, Medusa's element-mastering sister, the series has cast Australia Day's Isabelle Cornish.
Mike Moh (Empire) has joined the cast as Triton, the fish-like and athletic cousin of Black Bolt.
Sonya Balmores (Soul Surfer) will play Auran, Black Bolt's protector and loyal leader of the Royal Guards.
And finally, Ellen Woglom (Californication) has been cast as an unnamed character who works for an aerospace company and is "primed to be swept up in an adventure." That sounds like our audience POV character.
Oh, and it's been confirmed that Lockjaw will be in the show. Lockjaw is a 2,000-pound dog who can teleport. Lockjaw is the best.
"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," said showrunner Scott Buck.
So, the Inhumans are assembled. Now we just have to wait and see what all of these fine actors look like in costume.
