ABC May Already Be Worried About Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’

Inhumans Comic Book TVMarvel’s Inhumans has been off to a rough start when it comes to criticism from both fans and critics alike but also with its less than stellar IMAX premiere at the box office as well.

According to Variety, a source claims that ABC may already be having concerns over Inhumans. In regards to its disappointing IMAX premiere, the source advised that “the IMAX box-office numbers will do little to reverse that narrative, and could dissuade future such hybrids strategies.”

Due to the fact that the premiere will be televised in just a few weeks and a lukewarm reception, it’s easy to see how most movie goers may be apprehensive of going to the theater to see the live action debut of the Attilan Royal Family.

The source also delves into mounting tension between ABC and Disney over “concerns over quality of ‘Inhumans’ episodes — both the special effects of early cuts and the underpinning scripts.”

Considering not only how Inhumans’s shaky production history but also the mixed reception towards the promotion of the show to where the show’s director was critical of the first trailer, it would come to no surprise that ABC could possibly be showing some concern with the newest entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“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.”

Marvel’s Inhumans stars Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Iwan Rhoen, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores and Ellen Woglomas.

The first two episodes are now screening in IMAX theaters for two weeks.

Marvel’s Inhumans will then premiere on ABC at 8:00 pm ET on September 29.

10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See

Previous1 of 11

Netflix The Defenders The Avengers Marvel Cinematic UniverseAfter three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.

Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.

Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.

Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.

So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!

    Well this is what happens when you foolishly hire Scott Buck as your show runner. He’s the HACK who ruined DEXTER and mucked up IRON FIST.

    How to fix Inhumans in the future:

    Step 1 – Don’t hire Scott Buck.
    Step 2 – Don’t. Hire. Scott. Buck.
    Step 3 – Don’t shave Medusa’s hair because you can’t afford the FX budget. If you can’t do Medusa justice, don’t do Inhumans.
    Step 4 – Merge TV with Marvel Studios, fire everyone at the top there, and let Feige and his team handle it.
    Step 5 – And for the love of the One Above All, don’t hire Scott Buck!!!
