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.

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.

First Look at Netflix’s Next Marvel Series: IRON FIST

Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for IRON FIST, the next installment in its series showcasing Marvel Comics’ “street level” superheroes. GAME OF THRONES’ Finn Jones stars as Danny Rand, scion of a wealthy industrial family and a man presumed dead in a plane crash 15 years ago, who returns wielding the incredible martial arts ability known as the Iron First. 

In the comics, this ability is usually described as “He summons his chi — the essence of his spirit and strength —  channeling its raw power down into his arm, into his hand, until that hand becomes like unto a thing of iron!

Take a look at the terrific way the Iron Fist is being visualized for the series in the clip below…

IRON FIST also stars David Wenham as Harold Meachum, the former business partner of Danny’s late parents; Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey as Harold’s children, Joy and Ward Meachum, who have known Danny since childhood; and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, an ally of Danny’s who runs a martial arts dojo.

IRON FIST premieres March 17, 2017, on Netflix.
