New Marvel's Inhumans Preview Spotlights Characters

Confused about who's who in Marvel's Inhumans? A new clip has you covered. The clip quickly goes through each of the ABC series' supporting characters before introducing the main cast and ramping up the action.

The trailer starts by introducing Gorgon, the Guardian. Extant's Eme Ikwuakor takes on the role, a cousin of Black Bolt (Anson Mount) and the leader of the Attilan military. A warrior who would rather fight than talk through problems, he has the ability to generate seismic waves.

Gorgon's warlike tendencies put him at odds with the next character introduced: Ken Leung's Karnak, the visionary. Karnak is Black Bolt's cousin and close advisor, with the ability to see fault in all things– people, plans, structures, and more.

Next up is Auran, the assassin. Auran, the no-nonsense head of the Royal Guards of Attilan and another one of Black Bolt's fierce allies, will be played by Soul Surfer's Sonya Balmores. Then there is Mike Moh's Triton, described as the operative, another cousin of Black Bolt with the fish-like ability to live underwater. 

The trailer then moves into introducing the royal family, beginning with Isabelle Cornish's Crystal, the princess. The younger sister of Queen Medusa (Serinda Swan), Crystal has the ability to control the elements. She is also backed up by her pet Lockjaw, a 2,000 pound teleporting bulldog.

The trailer then introduces Medusa, the queen, and Black Bolt, the king, before showing the main villain of the story: Maximus, the revolutionary. Played by Iwan Rheon, Maximus' conflicts with his brother drive the story forward, forcing Black Bolt to abandon his land and flee to Hawaii. There, his interactions with humanity could not only save him, but the entire world. "Your reign, it's done," Maximus tells him in the clip.

Inhumans will premiere its first two episodes for two weeks in IMAX theaters starting on Sept. 1, with tickets available now. The show will then move over to the small screen on Sept. 29, airing at 9 p.m. on Friday nights on ABC for the remainder of its eight-episode run. While we wait for the show to premiere, see some of the other entertainment events you have to look forward to next month.
