Marvel Tries Again With a New INHUMANS Trailer

Marvel unveiled a new trailer at San Diego Comic-Con for its forthcoming INHUMANS TV series on ABC, and this one  is packed with action in a bid to make the September-bowing series look less cheap and boring. This trailer focuses on the fact that the series premiere will be seen in IMAX theaters on Sept. 1, before debuting on the small screen on Sept. 29.

Well, there were lots of guns and shouting, plus some martial arts. We got our first clear look at Crystal (Isabelle Cornish) who will have golden eyes, for some reason. Her hair does look pretty fun, though. We also see Triton (Mike Moh) for the first time. He’s the one with the green skin, gills and ridge on his head. What, no fishy scales covering his whole body? And why can’t Karnak (Ken Leung) wear his trademark hat? I suppose the tattoos from the more modern iteration of the character are better than nothing.

Medusa’s (Serinda Swan) hair looked pretty fuzzy and indistinct in action. Gorgon’s (Eme Ikwuakor) foot-stomping power (which we’ve seen before) looked okay. Am I the only person who likes Lockjaw’s teleporting effect? We didn’t see much else new or interesting.

Can’t say I’m much more interested in this project than I was before. Mostly, I plan to give it a look (on TV) just to see if it has any redeeming value. I’m not holding out much hope.

What about you? Are you salivating at the idea of seeing the incomparable Inhumans brought to life on the small screen? Let me know in the comments section below.

Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’ Trailer: Not Worth the Wait

After lots of boasting from Marvel about its expensive new series and lots of teasing, the first trailer for INHUMANS has dropped — and the clip really drops the ball when it comes to making the series look exciting. Or even interesting.

I would hazard a guess that if you’ve never heard of the Inhumans as comic book characters, you are not going to be sold on a TV series based on this confusing mish-mash of a trailer. Only someone familiar with the characters of Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak and Crystal would have an inkling about the potential for this series.
