Marvel’s ‘The Inhumans’ TV Series Will Premiere On IMAX Theaters; Will Viewers Follow It To The Small Screen? [VIDEO]


Marvel's "The Inhumans" TV series will have its first two episodes on IMAX theaters and then the next six episodes will be aired on TV in the ABC network. However, some skeptics would say that viewers may not follow the show to the small screen after a big debut in the biggest screen in the world.

Marvel's "The Inhumans" have been the subject of discussions for the last couple of years. A movie was supposed to be released in 2014, but Marvel Studios opted to go for the "Ant-Man and the Wasp," further closing the doors on "The Inhumans" movie.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did promise a movie, but Marvel is opting to have it first on television. Marvel's "The Inhumans" TV series do not replace the movie, but will offer Marvel fans a glimpse into another corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Incidentally, "The Inhumans" TV Series will debut on Labor Day 2017, just after "Spider-Man: The Homecoming" and "Thor: Ragnarok." The IMAX premiere will fill in the late summer window where there are fewer movies releasing, enabling the producers to cash in on the TV show as reported by THR.

Marvel has not yet announced possible cast or the plot twists for the movie. However, the comic books can offer fans some clues. The Inhumans are genetically modified beings with superpowers and abilities.

Thousands of years ago, the Kree experimented with primitive men to form a new race of superbeings. The Inhumans society is led by their King, Black Bolt, with his royal family consisting of Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crytsal and Maximus the Mad according to comicbook.

The Inhumans had dealings with the Fantastic Four, X-Men and the Avengers. Marvel's "The Inhumans" will more likely have ties with the "Agents of SHIELD," from which some Inhuman characters were already introduced.

"The Inhumans" TV show will be partly funded by IMAX who will shoulder the cost of the first two episodes. This will be the first time that a TV series debuted on the big screen, which is an innovative way that is mutually beneficial to all.

ABC Television Group president Ben Sherwood calls the Marvel's "The Inhumans" TV series as a "quadruple win" for IMAX, Marvel, ABC Studios and ABC provided that viewers may be willing to follow the series into the smaller screen.
