Today Marvel Entertainment announced actor Iwan Rheon (Ramsey Bolton in “Game of Thrones”) is set to play the “key role” of Maximus the Mad in “Marvel’s Inhumans”. For those not familiar with the Inhuman Royal Family (though I am pretty sure most of you are at this point), Maximus is Black Bolt’s brother. Black Bolt’s rather unbalanced (to put it nicely) brother. His greatest hits include stealing the throne from Black Bolt on several occasions, sewing chaos throughout Inhuman society and being absolutely delightful while doing it.
Marvel couldn’t have cast a better actor for the role. We’re pretty sure that Iwan Rheon is going to turn Maximus into one of Marvel’s most beloved villains. For those wanting to become more familiar with Maximus read Charles Soule’s Uncanny Inhumans to see Maximus at his best. You will understand why we are excited for this announcement!
In other news (to be taken with a HUGE grain of salt), some tweets from Eliana Jones over on Twitter could possibly confirm her role as Crystal in “Marvel’s Inhumans”. It’s also a bit telling that she is following the Marvel’s Inhumans Twitter account. Hopefully we will get official confirmation of who the remaining cast members will be later this week.
