It seems Inhumans is hitting some speed bumps before even airing for general audiences. Since the first trailer’s release, there hasn’t been as much excitement for the film as much as perhaps ABC and Marvel wanted. Fans weren’t exactly over-the-moon with the first trailer and apparently, neither was Inhumans director Roel Reiné.
Speaking with Metro, Reiné, who directed the first two episodes of the series, said that he was “mixed about the first trailer,” just like the fans were.
“I was mixed about the first trailer as well. I felt like it didn’t give you the scope, it didn’t give you a lot of secrets or visual effects. I felt it was a little bit too early because the visual effects were not ready – Medusa’s hair was not ready. So I was really nervous about it and would think the fans would not really like it. The trailer was made by other people, so I was really nervous about it when I saw it. So I was like, ‘oh guys maybe we should hold off’, but it was too late because it was already in the open.”
Thankfully, the second trailer was a little better and Reiné says that he was more pleased with it.
“I’m very happy we kind of changed it around. The second trailer really got all the fans back on track and they really like it now and they really want to see it. I was really happy with that second trailer.”
