Casting is coming fast and furious for Marvel's upcoming Inhumans TV series, with recent announcements of Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as his wife, Medusa and Iwan Rheon as Black Bolt's calculating brother, Maximus.
Now the role of the Attilan clan's advisor, Minister Karnak, has been given to Lost alum Ken Leung.
Karnak is Black Bolt's cousin and loyal right-hand man to the silent King of Atillan. A respected scientist and telepath who is able to identify faults in people, structures and situations, Karnak is the lone member of the team who was not exposed to the transformative Terrigen Mists.
"Ken brings both a wisdom and a power to the role that no one else could match. His Karnak will be awesome," announced Jeph Loeb, Marvel head of television and Inhumans executive producer.
Marvel's Inhumans will roll out as an eight-episode mini-series this fall, produced in a joint venture between Marvel, ABC Television and IMAX. The storyline will revolve around the royal family first created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965 and its "never-before-told story of an isolated race of superhumans with unique and diverse powers." The two-hour pilot is set to screen in IMAX theaters over Labor Day weekend, prior to the series shifting to ABC for a complete run in the fall.
