Whenever you adapt a comic book property like The Inhumans for television or film, things are always going to have to get adjusted when you lift things from page to screen. So how different will the show be from its source material when The Inhumans premieres on ABC this fall?
According to Henry Ian Cusick, who will be playing Dr. Evan Declan, it looks like most aspects of The Inhumans will remain fairly faithful to the comic lore. When the actor chatted with CinemaBlend recently, Cusick explained that there were actually Marvel executives on set making sure things were handled right.
“I don’t know all of the comics obviously, but faithful in the sense that the main characters are like the characters in the comics, yes, absolutely. If you want to go into the nitty gritty, I don’t know the comics well enough to say but I would imagine so, because we had a lot of Marvel executives on set and a lot of Marvel people saying, ‘Oh no, you’re doing that wrong. This is how it is.’ You know, little things… that people in the Marvel universe know about, about how you would hold certain things, about how certain things appear in other Marvel shows or something. [They] said, ‘Oh, no, no, no, you have to do it this way.’ So we have those executives on set, so I’m hoping that they are faithful to the comics so that the fans enjoy the show.”
“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 may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”
Marvel’s The Inhumans, starring Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan (Smallville) as Medusa, Iwan Rhoen (Game of Thrones) as Maximus the Mad, Ken Leung (LOST) as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion) as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish (Australia Day) as Crystal, Mike Moh (Empire) as Triton, Sonya Balmores (Beyond the Break) as Auran, and Ellen Woglom (Californication), is set to premiere on Friday nights at 9/8c on ABC.
