The Inhumans are a 7,000-year-old group of early humans that were experimented on and given powers by the Kree. The Kree previously appeared in the Marvel's Cinematic Universe, in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013).
Black Bolt communicates via sign language. An idea was proposed to have a voiceover from Anson Mount as telepathy, but the filmmakers ruled it out, not only to make Black Bolt more enigmatic but to appeal to deaf-mute viewers.
When originally conceived as a film, Inhumans (2017) was to be Chapter 11 of Phase 3 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before being removed from the schedule. However, a film centering on the Royal Family may still happen in the future.
This was most generally considered Marvel's biggest "risk" as the Inhumans were not nearly as widespread or known as the X-Men or the Avengers, which was why Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013) spent its entire second and third seasons focused on developing and establishing the Inhumans in the MCU, several years before the debut of the Inhuman Royal Family.
Was originally announced on October 28, 2014, as a film along with Black Panther (2018), Captain Marvel (2019), and Avengers 3 & 4 (Infinity War).
The Inhumans were first introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013). The characters of Skye (Daisy Johnson), Raina, Lincoln, Gordon and Jiaying were the first live-action Inhumans.
This is the third TV series to be released by ABC for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Black Bolt leads the Inhumans. In the comics he has the ability to harness the power of electrons via the tuning fork on his forehead. He uses these electrons to heighten his speed, strength, agility, etc. He also channels the electrons inward to amplify his quasi-sonic scream/whisper. Thus far, on the show, his only ability is the deadly shock wave generated by his voice.
The main Inhumans are the Royal Family: Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, and Lockjaw.
Inhumans show runner Scott Buck also ran another Marvel TV series, Iron Fist (2017), which debuted on Netflix March 17, 2017.
Vin Diesel expressed interest for the role of Black Bolt, although he already has a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Anson Mount eventually won the role.
Many fans of the television show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013) have asked whether or not any of the characters introduced in Inhumans will cross over into other Marvel shows or movies. In an interview published September 30, 2017, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb told IGN, "Do I look forward to the day where Daisy Johnson stands in front of Black Bolt and says, 'You aren't the king of me?' Sure. We should be so lucky that both shows get to that day where we're going to see those characters interact. But there's no plan for that to happen right now other than the fact that we know they're in the same world and characters bump into each other. That's what happens. That's the Marvel Universe."
The characters of the Inhumans were originally introduced in December 1965 in the pages of Fantastic Four, but due to 20th Century Fox holding the film rights to the Fantastic Four, the Inhumans in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) were introduced through Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D instead.
This was Iwan Rheon's second time portraying a superhero on-screen. His first was in the British drama Misfits (2009).
Anson Mount and Serinda Swan, who play the royal couple Black Bolt and Medusa, both appeared in the DC Comics television show Smallville (2001) in different roles: Mount had a minor role in Smallville: Precipice (2003), and Swan had a three-episode stint as the magician Zatanna. This puts them in the small group of actors who have played roles in both DC and Marvel Comics productions.
The Inhumans are a race of superhumans who appear in various comic book series published by Marvel Comics. Each episode shares its title with a comic book story featuring the Inhumans.
Crystal's bedroom was designed to be able to fit her giant dog Lockjaw; while his sleeping/living areas had to be sized to fit the dog, the doors were left normal-sized since he could teleport.
Attilan is surrounded by a protective energy field in the shape of a cone. The cone shape was chosen so the Quiet Room where Black Bolt spends much of his time could be directly below the apex of the field, so if he accidentally produces any sonic waves, the waves are redirected up the side of the cone and out the apex into outer space and away from the city.
Officially announced on Monday, November 14, that this would be an ABC television show to be released in IMAX for certain theaters in September 2017.
Loki, Thor's nemesis from the Marvel comics and Commodus from Gladiator (2000) are considered influences behind the character of Maximus and his arc.
