Spoiler TV has revealed a possible new synopsis for Marvel’s Inhumans. The hybrid television series, which is currently shooting in Hawaii, will be an unprecedented collaboration between ABC Studios and IMAX in which the first two episodes will premiere in IMAX theaters before the series debuts on ABC.
Here’s the potential new synopsis:
“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.”
This synopsis, if accurate, provides a little more information about the actual series than the previous synopsis that was released. Here’s the original synopsis:
“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.”
Marvel’s Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck will serve as showrunner for Inhumans and the first two episodes will be directed by Roel Reine. Inhumans will star Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Ellen Woglom in an unspecified human role. It has also been confirmed that the series will also feature the giant teleporting bulldog Lockjaw.
The first two episodes of Marvel’s Inhumans will premiere in IMAX theaters on September 1, 2017. Following its two-week theatrical run, the 8-episode series will premiere on television on Tuesday, September 26 on ABC.

10 Marvel Shows We’d Like to See Made
As the “golden age of television” continues, one genre that has been on the uptick has been superhero TV shows. The CW almost has every day on lock with many DC Comics-centric TV shows like Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, as well as shows like iZombie, and the upcoming Riverdale. Other networks such as AMC and Fox (among others) have Preacher and The Walking Dead, Gotham, and Lucifer, respectively.
Marvel has been diversifying their portfolio as well. When they first introduced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they only slightly-connected their television universe with their cinematic universe. While recent corporate changes in their business structure have distanced their properties from each other, they still maintain a continuity. Shows like Agent Carter as well as the many Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, the upcoming Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders) all have events connected to their big screen counterparts. Currently, Marvel has Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Inhumans (coming next year) on ABC along with Damage Control (TBD) while Cloak and Dagger (airing on Freeform next year), and Runaways (developed for Hulu) are in development.
With such a large assortment of comic books and comic book characters, Marvel has barely scratched the surface. Here are a few comic book characters that could definitely use their own show…
