We’ve seen the casting news, we’ve seen the set pictures—we’ve even seen the poster. But now it’s time to get our first look at the stars of Marvel’s long-in-the-works adaptation of Inhumans. And... well, you can see for yourself.
Released through Entertainment Weekly this morning, the first-look image unites Black Bolt (Anson Mount), Medusa (Serinda Swan), Crystal (Isabelle Cornish), Maximus (Iwan Rheon), Karnak (Ken Leung), and Gorgon (Eme Ikwuakor). Sadly, still no Lockjaw in sight, even though we know he’s coming to the show.
Honestly, some of these costumes work way better than others. Anson Mount’s Black Bolt probably comes out the best of these, borrowing a few elements from his classic comic book look, and Isabelle Cornish’s Crystal gets some points for effort for at least trying to emulate the character’s black-tinged locks from the comics. But the most disappointing of all has to be Medusa, who honestly looks less like she’s the Queen of the Inhumans and more like she’s trying to do a particularly low-budget cosplay of Game of Thrones’ Sansa Stark.
Hopefully some of these costumes look much better on the silver screen and on TV, when Inhumans hits IMAX cinemas on September 1st, ahead of the rest of the limited series airing in the US on ABC this September. A UK broadcaster has yet to be announced.
