Marvel is famous for turning relatively unknown properties and characters into outstanding hits and pop culture icons. It's done it with Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and most recently, with Doctor Strange. Now, the House of Ideas is aiming to do that once again with its newest project, #Inhumans. The Royal Family will get their very own show that will see a theatrical release for its first two episodes before moving on to ABC later this year.
If you can't wait for the show to be released, don't worry, because it won't be long. Today, the official Inhumans Twitter account was updated with its brand new logo. At the same time, #Marvel finally announced the project's official release date release. Take a look:
Here's a closer look at the poster:
The caption reads:
"Prepare to meet Marvel's Inhumans in IMAX cinemas starting on September 1, followed by the full 8 episode series on ABC this fall."
Last year, we heard the show would hit theaters on Labor Day weekend. That's obviously a very minor difference, but diehard fans will appreciate the possibility of getting to see the Royal Family in action earlier than originally expected.
Ultimately, while it is very exciting to get our very first piece of promotional material from the series, there's not much to the poster, as it just features the Inhumans logo. It is worthy to note however, that the logo is fairly similar to the one we got when Marvel Studios announced its slate of new films back in 2014, with only a few minor tweaks:
- Inhuman Morghulis: The 'Inhumans' Could Be Marvel's Answer To HBO's 'Game Of Thrones'
- Mysterious Statue In 'Inhumans' Set Photos Teases An Intriguing Link With 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'
- New 'Inhumans' Set Video Shows Us Black Bolt Doesn't Get The Warmest Welcome From Humans
The first two episodes of Inhumans are being directed by Roel Reiné. The show stars #AnsonMount as Black Bolt, #SerindaSwan as Medusa, #IsabelleCornish as Crystal, #IwanRheon as Maximus the Mad and #KenLeung as Karnak. There you have it, we finally know when the Royal Family will be flying into the #MCU, so don't forget to go catch it.
