Marvel's #Inhumans screens in IMAX this September! Watch the first trailer here


Spider-Man? Iron Man? They aren't the only Marvel superheroes on the block.

This September we're delighted to be bringing you the IMAX presentation of the studio's latest sensation Inhumans, the first live-action TV show to make its big screen debut in the format.

It's officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, too. Here's what you need to know.

The story

Based on the comic that first appeared in December 1965, the show brings us the adventures of the Inhuman Royal Family, more commonly known as the Inhumans of the title. Here's the official 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.

Consider us intrigued!

The characters

Non-Stop's Anson Mount leads the cast as Black Bolt, our de facto leader and King of Attilan, the Inhumans' home which has continually moved from its original base in the North Atlantic Ocean. These include the Andes, the Himalayas and even the Moon. Bolt's voice is so powerful it can cause destruction through even the slightest whisper.

Chicago Fire's Serinda Swan plays Black Bolt's wife, Medusa, Queen of Attilan, whilst Transformers and Cinderella actress Isabelle Cornish plays her sister, Crystal, a woman with control over the elements. Meanwhile other cast members include Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Black Bolt's seismic wave-inducing cousin and Star Wars actor Ken Leung as Karnak, another cousin and close advisor to Black Bolt.

But the most exciting piece of casting comes in the form of Iwan Rheon, who will attempt to out-Ramsay himself with yet another sneering villain role. The Game of Thrones star is playing Maximus, Black Bolt's brother who harbours a ruthless desire to be King.


The first two episodes of Inhumans were shot in IMAX and will be exhibited in the format. Actor Henry Ian Cusick who plays geneticist Dr Evan Declan in the show tells Screenrant Marvel is pushing the boundaries in revolutionary ways.

"I’ll say that when I heard those first two episodes were going to be released in IMAX I though, “It’s unheard of. Who does that?” So my interest was immediately piqued. I thought nobody does that that’s a brand new thing. Is this going to be a new way of releasing a show? So, it’s an experiment that I’m very excited and curious to see how it’s going to pan out. Not just cinema but IMAX. That’s a huge screen, so it better be good, you know? By all reports it’s going to be. It’s all been favorable. I’m excited to see how this is going to pan out. I think this is really pushing the envelope a bit."

When can I watch it?

Inhumans screens early in IMAX on 1st September. The full series follows later on 29th September on ABC.
