First Inhumans Trailer Coming Thursday

The wait is almost over: Marvel announced Tuesday that the first trailer for their highly-anticipated Inhumans series is coming on Thursday. The studio also shared a short glimpse at the trailer, which you can watch above, alongside their announcement, giving quick teases of some of the show's main characters in action. 

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the Inhumans in 1965. While specific plot details have been kept under wraps, we do know that the series, which came into the picture after the planned movie about the characters was canceled, will see the Attilan royal family splintered by a military coup, forcing them to escape to Hawaii, where their interactions with humanity could not only save them but the whole world. The show comes from Iron Fist's Scott Buck and stars Anson Mount as the silent leader of the royal family Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as his ambitious brother Maximus, and Serinda Swan as his wife Medusa. 

The series, which filmed in Hawaii, also features an extensive ensemble cast. Isabelle Cornish will play Medusa's younger sister Crystal (who has a sidekick in the 2,000 pound teleporting bulldog Lockjaw), Eme Ikwuakor will play the leader of the Attilan military, Ken Leung will play Black Bolt's trusted advisor Karnak, Mike Moh will play Black Bolt's cousin Triton, Sonya Balmores will play the no-nonsense head of the Royal Guards of Attilan, and Ellen Woglom and Henry Ian Cusick will play new characters created for the show. 

Fittingly with the series' epic scale, Inhumans is set to get a mega-sized premiere, with the first two episodes holding a two-week berth in IMAX theaters beginning Sept. 1 before moving over to the small screen on Sept. 29. The series will anchor ABC's Friday night genre programming block, airing at 9 p.m. following Once Upon a Time. 

Inhumans has been long awaited, and many fans are eager to see what ABC will do with the series, with the upcoming trailer offering the first real glimpse other than a short, image-less teaser released earlier this year. While some are nervous (especially after the release of a much-derided cast photo), we think that the series will actually turn out for the best
