Marvel Reveals All Key Casting for ‘Marvel’s The Inhumans’
Over the past few week, we’ve had some key announcements of casting for Marvel’s The Inhumans, the upcoming tv show based on the comic books, which is coming to the ABC network in the US during September. This included Hell On Wheels’ Anson Mount casting as Black Bolt, Game Of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon as Maximus The Mad, and Serinda Swan as Medusa. Over the weekend, Marvel dropped the remaining key casting for the show, filling out the rest of the Inhuman Royal Family, which you can see below!
Ken Leung (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Person of Interest, Lost) – Karnak
Karnak is Black Bolt’s cousin and closest advisor. His gift is an ability to see the fault in all things – people, plans, structures, everything. He’s Black Bolt’s most ardent supporter and strategist and is often seen as the royal family’s planner and philosopher.
Eme Ikwuakor (Extant) – Gorgon
Gorgon is cousin of Black Bolt (Anson Mount), 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 (Ken Leung) yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.
Isabelle Cornish (Home and Away) – Crystal
Medusa’s (Serinda Swan) 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’s Ryu) – Triton
Triton is 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) – 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) – Undisclosed Character
This as yet undisclosed character is described as 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.
Lockjaw as himself
Crystal’s 2,000 lb canine companion; he is a two-thousand-pound dog (yes, a dog!) with the ability to teleport.
Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck is taking the helm on the series, with Roel Reiné directing the first 2 episodes, which are also going to be show in IMAX cinemas from the start of September 2017. The entire season lands on ABC on the 26th September 2017 for an 8 episode run.
No news yet on a UK pickup, but we will let you know when we have more information.
