This morning IGN announced that the Inhuman Royal Family will be featured in a new ongoing comic by Al Ewing (The Ultimates, New Avengers). Appropriately titled Royals, the series will feature Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal and Gorgon. Though, it looks as if Karnak and Triton will be sitting this book out. However, NuHumans Swain and Flint will be on the team along with Young Avenger Noh-Varr (aka Marvel Boy). You can read the article linked above to find out more about the series but two points really stick out to me:
1. Noh-Varr is going to be a key player in this series. He knows something about Terrigenesis that the rest of the Royal Family does not.
2. Al Ewing is stating outright that one of the 7 members on the team will not live to return to Earth.
Make of that what you will, but it’s safe to say that this is definitely going to be a series to add to your pull list.
In other news, for those of you worried that the announcement of the Inhuman Television series has all but canceled the movie – there’s a chance that that is not the case. The Hollywood Reporter claims “the film will still go on as planned, co-existing with the 8-part Inhumans series.” That’s pretty great to hear and a smart move on Marvel’s part, if that is indeed the case. The first two episodes of Inhumans will premiere in IMAX on September 4, 2017. At this time there have been no announcements of a showrunner, director, or casting of the series.
