When the Inhumans were first introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD, visual effects supervisor Mark Kolpack was part of the team who brought the characters from the comic book page to the television screen. Unfortunately, despite pioneering the live-action version of the characters, Kolpack’s demanding schedule on SHIELD has prevented him from being able to work on the upcoming ABC series The Inhumans.
Kolpack took to Twitter in response to a fans question about his involvement in the upcoming series, where he expressed his disappointment. Check out the post below!

Though an Inhumans film had originally been slated for release in November of 2018, concerns about the project grew when the release date was first pushed back and then removed from Marvel Studios’ schedule completely. It was not until this month when Marvel Television and ABC announced that an Inhumans television series had been ordered for fall of 2017.
While Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D featured comparatively lesser known Inhuman characters, The Inhumans solo series will focus on major characters such as Black Bolt and the Royal Family.
A brief synopsis of the series was provided.
The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. “Marvel’s The Inhumans” will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.
A version of the first two episodes of The Inhumans will be released exclusively in IMAX theaters in September 2017, featuring footage shot specifically with digital IMAX cameras.
The Inhumans IMAX screenings will run for two weeks before ABC airs the weekly series in Fall 2017, featuring content that can been seen exclusively on the network.
