So, the first full length trailer for the Inhumans tv show has dropped! Got to say, this has made be uber excited for the show in September, and since discovering there is an IMAX cinema near where I live I’m going to be booking tickets.
So let us begin… The trailer is available here
The monologue begins (as all good Inhuman monologues should) with Maximus. Describing how the Humans will find them “up here” – with an ominous shot of the moon. Which is where my first question comes. Who exactly is coming to find them? The reason I ask is because the ending of Agents of Shield where Coulson is in Space – is that a coincidence?
Either way, Maximus is claiming that the Earth is their rightful home. Committing treason and taking the earth for the Inhumans, claiming it for “freedom for all Inhumans”. What exactly does he mean?
My question at the moment is… Is Maximus as mad as he is in the comics in the tv show? Because it doesn’t appear to have been established that Maximus’ powers were affected when they were both young – something to look forward to perhaps?
I digress though, there is a lot of this where I feel that a lot of inspiration has come from the first appearance of the Inhumans in Fantastic Four #47. There appears to be a scene where Medusa is captured by Maximus, will she be sent to Earth? Is that what leads Black Bolt (and the rest of the Royal Family) to Earth?
To me, there is also a suggestion of the Genetic Council (and by extension – government) where Maximus strides up with a kill squad. Taking power over Attilan I assume?
There rest of the trailer is largely action shots, but obviously there are a few moments I loved, Gorgon cracking down on the Earth, Black Bolt’s fight scene then there was this…
