The first teaser trailer for Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’ has arrived and certainly does tease.
For those unfamiliar with the comic, ‘Inhumans’ follows the trials and tribulations of a superhuman Royal Family with incredible powers ranging from a supersonic voice that can destroy planets, multi-dexterous hair, telepathy, acute hearing and a giant teleporting dog.
Part of the sprawling Marvel Universe, according to the comics, the Inhumans started life as homosapiens millions of years ago, but were transformed into their mutant namesake by the Kree (as featured in ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’) when the alien race decided to experiment on humans with a substance called Terrigen Mist through a process called terrigenesis. After a while, the Kree abandoned their experiments and left the Inhumans to fend for themselves.
The Inhumans are lead by Black Bolt (played by Anson Mount), the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans with a voice so powerful that even the slightest whisper can destroy a city.
Black Bolt’s mischievous brother, Maximus (played by Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon in the new TV show), who had the ability to control people’s minds in the comics. Historically, Maximus has always had his eyes on Black Bolt’s crown and has attempted multiple coups.
The teaser trailer alludes to that sibling rivalry between Black Bolt and Maximus and an impending act of treason.
Whilst the ‘Inhumans’ title treatment slowly appears we hear what appears to be Maximus ask the question “Are we supposed to follow our King and remain as silent as he is?” to an unknown female character.
“You’re talking about betraying your brother. You’re talking about treason,” she responds.
Maximus corrects her by saying, “What I’m talking about is freedom. Freedom for all Inhumans”.
Dot, dot, dot.
‘Inhumans’ exclusively hits IMAX cinemas on 1st September before becoming available to watch on TV soon after.
