Today the first trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans was officially released and offered fans a glimpse of Black Bolt and the Royal family.

In an interview with Screen Rant, guest star Henry Ian Cusick discussed how Marvel is “pushing the envelop” by release the series in IMAX.
Cusick discussed how the decision to screen the series in IMAX theaters will raise expectations:
“I’ll say that when I heard those first two episodes were going to be released in IMAX I though, “It’s unheard of. Who does that?” So my interest was immediately piqued. I thought nobody does that that’s a brand new thing. Is this going to be a new way of releasing a show? So, it’s an experiment that I’m very excited and curious to see how it’s going to pan out. Not just cinema but IMAX. That’s a huge screen, so it better be good, you know? By all reports it’s going to be. It’s all been favorable. I’m excited to see how this is going to pan out. I think this is really pushing the envelope a bit.”

“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”

5 Potential Marvel TV Shows To Rival HBO’s ‘Watchmen’
With news breaking that Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of both Lost and The Leftovers, is in talks to develop a Watchmen show for HBO, Marvel needs a new TV hit. Don’t get me wrong, I know Agents of Shield still has a huge following, but I stopped watching the Netflix shows during the second season of Daredevil. And FX’s Legion was just… okay for me. It’s not that I don’t love Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, but it’s not fair to put lower-tier characters like them in competition with a juggernaut like Watchmen.
HBO was clearly taking notes when Netflix started releasing their shows, so this seems like a great moment for Marvel to take some notes on their competition. If DC is going to churn out a Watchmen series, then Marvel needs to dig deep into their libraries to find stories worthy of being brought to the silver screen.
So hit Next to find out about five properties Marvel should consider adapting if they want to match HBO’s Watchmen.
